Long ago, Scottish polo players longed for a game where they could explore scenic terrain, ride an obedient mechanical horse, and wear more courageously plaid knickers. Marvel in their subsequent invention with today's Groupon to Deerfield Country Club in Deerfield Beach. Choose between the following options:

Deerfield Country Club boasts verdant grounds, a challenging course, and inimitable service. Take to the green slopes, where 18 holes of golf goodery await two players' backswings, forward trots, and expert bogey-evading skills. Novice iron wielders and skilled swingers alike will delight in the unique and lavish fairways designed by legendary link architect William Mitchell and maintained by Deerfield’s meticulous staff of golf professionals and anal-retentive lawn gnomes. Two buckets of golf balls beg to be blasted across the practice range, which teases links lovers with its sand traps and chipping areas. Fairway fiends can spend their summer swinging for the sky with a membership, which promises months of playing 18-hole games whenever the urge for golf manifests itself. Membership includes discounted cart fees, locker access, bag storage, and range balls for blowing off steam faster than a teakettle launched from a cannon.
Deerfield Country Club
The verdant brainchild of course architect William Mitchell, Deerfield Country Club's 18-hole course plots a 4,120-yard track through lush groves of palm trees and impeccably maintained turf. An executive layout composed of nine par 3s and nine par 4s, the course offers diverse play in a time-efficient package. New greens and recently refurbished bunkers compete for golf balls' affection, their success determined by dowries offered by paternal flagsticks and sand-trap rakes. Golfers streamline straight-hitting swings and soft, greenside shots at the practice facilities, which include a driving range with practice bunkers and an immense putting green. Leather chairs await weary legs in the clubhouse, where golfers can slake their thirst or clean off sand wedges with a sudsy drink from the bar.
