Before golf was invented, grassy pastures were viewed as the exclusive territory of roaming sheep, herds of cattle, and overzealous Civil War reenactors. Celebrate turf's competitive utility with today's Groupon to Cool Lake Golf Club in Lebanon. Choose between the following options:

Cool Lake Golf Club teases the golfer's sense of adventure with an 18-hole course that stretches more than 6,000 yards from the back tees. Drive dimpled pals from the blue or white tees for a challenging par 70 course, or opt for the green or red tees that transform the course into a par 72 using nothing but golf-ball dust and a little bit of faith. Majestic trees, ominous ponds, and a serpentine creek all create hazards that punish errant shots, but a cart and professional-grade ball trap simplify ball retrieval. Links lovers can warm up with two large bucket of range balls (a $6 value each) after nourishing athletic appetites with a lunch of hot dogs and sodas (a $10 value). Cool Lake Golf Club has a full-service pro shop that outfits golfers with high-end apparel, and the club also offers memberships, lessons, and clinics to help golfers keep swings as smooth as a baby’s pet dolphin.
Cool Lake Golf Club
A stone-lined creek and two ponds shape the layout at Cool Lake Golf Club, where golfers meander through a 6,008-yard circuit of 18 tricky greens. The creek cuts across four holes on the front nine before fanning out in a wishbone pattern on the back three, where it imperils the lives of golf balls and paper boats fashioned from scorecards. The longest hole on the course—the 590-yard, par-five fifth—is also the most difficult, featuring a dog-leg left and a second shot that must clear the creek to set up an approach. Before beginning their round, golfers can loosen up by hitting balls at the range or turning the ball-washer crank for several hours.
