What You'll Get
Like all sports, golf prowess requires years of practice, stern mental dedication, and a mysterious yet inspirational caddie that appears when it seems that all hope is lost. Harness your game on your own terms with today’s Groupon: for $17, you get 18 holes of golf, including cart fee, at Copper Hill Golf Club in East Granby (up to a $35 value).
Novice and expert links-lovers will don their best plaids on sight of this nine-hole jewel nestled in the New England countryside. The par 36 course debuted in 1955 and was recently renovated under new management to ensure enduring challenges such as ball-gulping water hazards, bunkers, and spontaneously combusting garden gnomes. The pro shop, managed by PGA pro and course co-owner Paul Banks, luxuriates tee trollers with equipment, apparel, and accessories from the top names in golf. Players can energize before or after their round with a variety of sandwiches, burgers, and daily specials from the bar and grill, all intended to eliminate hunger handicaps. The course is also home to Copper Hill Golf Academy, which offers private, semiprivate, and group lessons.
Copper Hill Golf Club's rates fluctuate throughout the week. Plan ahead to get the most out of your Groupon.

About Copper Hill Golf Club
The nine-hole course at Copper Hill Golf Club is designed to welcome beginners while still challenging advanced golfers, an egalitarian approach that earned it the 2012 Walter Lowell Award for Public Service from the Connecticut Section PGA. Having founded the Golf Academy in 1994 and taken full control of the club in 2010, two-decade PGA pro Paul Banks runs the outfit as a welcoming environment where golfers can both enjoy the game and improve. In line with its emphasis on introducing the game to new players, Copper Hill hosts an extensive youth program, training up duffers as young as 5. Its extensive practice area comprises a 3,500-square-foot pitching and chipping green along with a four-tier driving range, where up to 32 club swingers can hone drives, approaches, and putter-juggling acts on grass tees.
