In golf vernacular, a “wedge” is a club designed to loft balls out of unfavorable lies, and a “rescue club” refers to the blunt mallet used to ward off feral caddies. Put your golf tools to work with today’s Groupon: for $29, you get a golf outing for two (up to a $70 total value) at DeLand Country Club. The outing includes:
- An 18-hole round of golf for two, including cart rental (a $30 value/person)
- A $10 dining-room voucher<p>
Nestled in the shadows of towering trees, golfers traverse the arboreal alleyways of DeLand Country Club’s course across 18 holes of challenging golf. Throughout the course, mature oaks and pines stalk the edges of fairways, flexing their branches ominously and making menacing shadow puppets with their twiggy fingers in an attempt to break the focus of golfers. The subtle slopes of the rolling course place a high premium on golfers’ capacity to cleanly strike balls off of uneven surfaces, and greenside bunkers wait to ensnare off-kilter shots. Club-toting twosomes can loop the 18-hole course astride an efficient golf cart, which helps hunt down balls while proffering incisive commentary about the universally strained relationship between carts and caddies.
At the end of the competitive spirit-walk, duos can rest tired legs over a meal at the Clubhouse, where diners summon classic American eats such as a triple-decker club sandwich ($7.95) or 6-ounce burger on a kaiser roll ($7) while recapitulating the round as they look over the dining room’s panoramic view of the golf course.
