It’s difficult to hit a target from far away, which is why holes-in-one are rare and the Goodyear blimp has never been shot successfully with an arrow. Drive hard with a vengeance, thanks to today’s Groupon: for $20, you get a golf outing for two at Crane Field Golf Course in Clinton (a $42 total value). The outing includes:
- Nine-hole round of golf with cart for two (a $17 value each)
- Two medium buckets of range balls (a $4 value each)<p>
Crane Field Golf Course meanders through rolling American parkland and incorporates native wetlands that present both natural challenges and scenic beauty. Expecting the full 18-hole course to be open for play later this season, Crane Field Golf Course currently lets golfers play rounds on the back nine and practice at the full-length range replete with target greens, grass tees, and covered mat bays shielded from the rain and boomerang-shaped balls. The back nine challenges precise shot selection with numerous water hazards and bunkers amid a mesmerizing canvas painted with mountain vistas, wispy grasses, heron, and deer. Water dominates the back nine and culminates on hole 17, a tricky layout where golfers must land approach shots on a peninsula enveloped by gently rippling water and the gazes of hypercritical frogs.
