The game of golf is a metaphor for the life of Alexander the Great, who conquered the world by navigating through forests, over hazardous bodies of water, and around difficult pin placements. Swing like the great ones with today’s Groupon: for $45, you get 18 holes of golf with a cart for two at Coweta Club at Arbor Springs Plantation (up to a $100 value) in Newnan, located about 20 minutes from the Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta airport. Customers may combine two Groupons to form a foursome.
Coweta Club rewards golfers athirst for its hearty challenge with a resplendent course, with recent renovations supervised under the knowing tutelage of the Augusta National superintendent. Sown into 180 acres of rolling Georgia countryside, the tree-lined course is laid out such that no hole plays alongside another, entitling each mallet-wielder to a rewarding round free from errant shots fired by a high-school nemesis. Five sets of tees cater to every ability level, with an aggregate length stretching to 7,056 yards from the tips and contracting to fewer than 5,000 yards from the forward-most tees. Magnificent vistas await those with sand wedges for arms, such as the views found on the par 4 10th hole, whose pin is accessible only by flying a shot over a ridge of heather, tufts, and man-eating sharks. Take an online course tour and begin planning an attack strategy.
Though not included with this Groupon, Coweta Club offers pre- and post-game nourishment at the Coweta Grill, located within the 15,000-square-foot clubhouse. There, patrons discover the true location of the 19th hole, which happens to be layered deep within a club sandwich.
Nestled inside 180 acres of tree-lined, gently rolling grounds, the Newnan golf course springs up from the natural terrain, gracing golfers with scenic views of ridges, ravines, and waterways. On June 18, 2014, the course was featured on GolfNow.com as one of 10 must-play courses in the South. The meticulously maintained fairways and greens wend along natural, wooded buffers that create a sense of public but peaceful solitude, like delivering a speech from inside a sleeping bag. Golfers hone their short game at the practice green, deliver pep talks to lazy 9-irons at the all-weather driving range, or pick up anything from tees to new clubs at the pro shop. The 15,000-square-foot clubhouse's Coweta Grill serves casual or formal dining fare and slings drinks at full bar, and a sweeping veranda overlooks the 10th tee and its hazards, including the catapult-launched Harlem Globetrotters, who slap down soaring golf balls.
