Like playing poker, success at golf often requires concentration as well as a caddy to hand over the right clubs. Conquer the greens with today's Groupon to Eagles View Golf Course in Murray River, Prince Edward Island.
$49 for five rounds of golf (a $108.20 value)
Eagles View Golf Course challenges all skill levels with creative layouts of championship difficulty. After tapping in on the second green, golfers cross a 1,000-foot bridge that traverses clear to the other side of MacLures Pond, the island’s largest fresh water pond. There the rest of the par 36 course awaits ambitious swingers, highlighted by the infamous seventh hole's elevated tee and green framed by sand traps as well as bunkers that play man-on-man defense.
Eagles View Golf Course
Sidling MacLure Pond with nine champion-calibre holes, Eagles View Golf Course crafts a game that feels as much like a nature walk as a round of golf. The course begins on the water’s North bank and crosses a 1,000-foot bridge to South bank’s remaining holes, seducing players with lush bluegrass fairways and wide emerald greens along the way. Back in the clubhouse, an interpretive centre reveals the area's natural history and the Murray River village’s roughhewn past. The facility’s 1.5-kilometre educational trail snakes its way through the area’s beautiful scenery— the pond bridge and dam, a grove of old-growth red and white pine trees, and the area’s resident bald eagles crafting new toupees from supple fairway grass. An on-site pro shop takes care of gear needs, and the casual restaurant supplies sustenance and southerly views of the grounds.
