In golf, "birdie" refers to one stroke under par, whereas "eagle" refers to the flying carnivores players train to swipe their opponents’ clubs. Swing through the winged onslaught with today’s Groupon to Fairtree Golf Centre in Markham. Choose between the following options:
- For $13, you get two large buckets of golf balls for use on the driving range and practice greens (a $26 value).
- For $25, you get four large buckets of golf balls for use on the driving range and practice greens (a $52 value).
At Fairtree Golf Centre, links-lovers hone long-games on a 300-yard driving range and short-games on a two-acre practice area. After grabbing their buckets of Pinnacle range balls, which the staff replaces each season, golfers toe up to one of 50 fibre mats that look out upon the range's expanse. Thwacking through a large bucket typically takes about 45 minutes, although some may opt to save a little ball ammo for the short-game area's two putting greens and arduous sand traps. Since there is no time limit on either of the facilities, players can take their time and recite a farewell haiku to each and every ball.
