Golf has long been regarded as America's No. 2 ball-and-club sport, falling just behind baseball and narrowly beating out whack-a-juggler. Enjoy this peaceful, patriotic pastime with today's Groupon: for $112, you get one round of golf plus a cart (up to a $224 total value) at The Golf Club at Oxford Greens, the Player Course at Lyman Orchards Golf Club, and Wintonbury Hills Golf Course. This Groupon is valid for one round and one cart rental at each course.
The three courses presented with today's Groupon allow players to put their long and short games to the test on a selection of the region's finest links, including two that made Golfweek magazine's list of the best courses to play in Connecticut. The Golf Club at Oxford Greens—designed by esteemed architect Mark Mungeam—carves its way through 680 acres of woods west of Naugatuck State Forest to create a memorable 18 holes of play. At the Gary Player-designed Lyman Orchards Player Course, players wind their way through majestic trees, apple orchards, and talking pumpkin patches in a time-honored pursuit of par, and Pete Dye's Wintonbury Hills course challenges divot diggers with a varied combination of tree-lined fairways and links-style open holes. Set against a lush backdrop of rolling forests and manicured greens and situated far from the hustle and bustle of traffic and residential homes, each course's serene surroundings peacefully erase all memory of phrases such as “double bogey,” “water hazard,” and “eaten by a moose.”
