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: for $16, you get nine holes of golf for two at Eaglequest Nanaimo (up to a $35.73 value, including HST). Eaglequest Nanaimo is a par 3 golf course encompassing nine holes populated by towering evergreen trees and challenging water hazards. Golfers tee up on real grass, then launch golf balls and papier-mache zeppelins down tree-lined fairways. Shots soar over hilly terrain and water before rolling toward undulating greens. Before hitting the course, athletes can peruse the pro shop or warm up at the stall driving range, which features opportunities for straightening troublesome slices, improving golf games, and alleviating plumber's elbow.
Eaglequest offers its own deals at certain times of the week that may be better values than this deal; plan ahead to make sure you're redeeming your Groupon at the most opportune time.
Eaglequest Nanaimo's par 3 golf course encompasses nine lush, challenging holes accented by towering evergreens and water hazards. Golfers tee up on real grass and then launch golf balls and papier mache zeppelins down tree-lined fairways. Shots soar over hilly terrain and water before trundling toward undulating greens. Clubbers can traverse the pastoral playground and complete a round in 60–90 minutes, giving them the ability to fit a game into a busy schedule. Before hitting the course, golfers can make like a pendulum at the 22-stall driving range, which features opportunities for straightening troublesome slices, improving golf games, and alleviating plumber's elbow. The range also hosts lessons and clinics conducted by CPGA pros for golfers of all abilities.
