Since great aunts cannot resist pinching dimpled cheeks, the overwhelming number of dimples on a golf ball should confuse their grabby hands—defeating them once and for all. Drive dimpled dandies back into their holes with today's Groupon: for $60, you get 18 holes of golf for four people at Eagle Creek Golf Club in Norwalk (up to a $120 value). This Groupon may be redeemed Monday through Friday only, and tee times must be reserved online. Cart rental is also available for an additional $15 at the time of booking.
Armed with a rating of 4.5 out of 5 stars by Golf Digest, Eagle Creek Golf Club challenges long and short gamers over its par 71 course's cushy fairways, bent-grass greens, tricky bunkers, and waterways. Test your clubbing prowess or settle driveway border disputes on any of four sets of tees, including five par 3s and four par, from the first hole's 502-yard straightaway par 5 to the final hole's narrow, tree-lined fairway and bunker-surrounded green.
In a ploy to ensure all guests look as sharp as their swings, Eagle Creek policy requires players to don proper attire and recommends soft-style golf spikes.

- A well-stocked golf shop, exceptional practice range, killer golf cars (not to be underestimated - how many times have you rented a clunker that barely moves faster than your grandma) and smooth car paths add to the experience. – Jason Stahl
