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 $58, you get a golf outing for two (up to a $117 total value). The package includes the following items:
- 18 holes of golf for two, valid Monday–Thursday at 1 p.m. or later (a $70 value)
- Powered golf cart (a $16 value per rider)
- $15 worth of pizza and American fare at The Albatross<p>
Swaths of forest cut the 18-hole championship course at Settlers Bay Golf Course into emerald alleys that open out onto views of the Chugach Mountains. Chipping duos assess each fairway’s water hazards or sand traps before somersaulting their way from the tee to the green, zooming quietly across the course’s neatly manicured grass in a powered cart. Beneath the steel-hued peaks, ducks settle onto the still water of small lakes or masquerade as caddies willing to help carry bread. After romping across the course, pairs adjourn to The Albatross to peruse a menu populated by hand-tossed pizzas laden with caramelized onions and kalamata olives (12”, $15) and hand-cut wild Alaskan cod with Brew City fries ($13) with a crisp golden hue that causes nearby alchemists to update their resumés. Companions lounge near one of the outdoor deck’s fire pits as they bite into the half-pound chop steak of an Apocalypse Cow burger ($12).
