Golf balls fly hundreds of yards to reach a minuscule target, an action mathematically equivalent to throwing a tomato at a comedian in a neighboring state. Launch into fun with today’s Groupon: for $35, you get 18 holes of golf for two (up to a $66 value) and rental of a power cart (a $27 value) at the River Heights Golf Course in DeKalb (up to a $93 value).
River Heights Golf Course amalgamates traditional and links-style holes for a challenging, varied game enhanced by the Kishwaukee River’s scenic backdrop. Players hop into a cart and dart across the par 72 course, encountering shallow greens, long pars, water hazards, and river bridges built by visit-hungry grandmothers. Many holes are hugged by curvaceous river waters, lending cool breezes to the shady course. Players must take into account the strength of the wind, perilous bunker positions, and unsolicited advice from overeager golf clubs in order to deliver balls to their destination. After matches, golfers can relax at the clubhouse, whose wraparound porch and full bar beckon to players with promises of relaxation and refreshment.
River Heights Golf Course's rates fluctuate throughout the week.
