The Scots developed golf to irk common loch pests, such as merats, locharoaches, and Nessie, who to this day rarely surfaces for fear of being beaned by a well-aimed ball. Brush up your monster-vexing skills with today's Groupon: for $14, you get 18 holes of golf plus cart rental at Forest Hills Country Club (a $28 total value), located in downtown Middletown. Each Groupon will take one player through the executive-style, nine-hole golf course twice, with different tee boxes for the "front" and "back" nine.
Built in 1915 as the personal swinging grounds for Armco Steel founder George M. Verity, Forest Hills boasts lush landscaping and an impressive roster of players (two former U.S. presidents have teed off on this famed course). Flanked by grand oak trees and historic buildings, the nine-hole, 18-tee course presents challenging game-curbers with every stroke. Post play, stop off in the gazebo, once the owner's summer cottage, for pub pours and grill eats.
Golf with friends is the best kind of bonding. There's nothing like being out in the open air, hearing the wind blow through the beautiful old trees lining the well-groomed fairways, and refusing to grant your compadres mulligans. The satisfaction of a well-played hole is amplified by the enjoyment you get from your partner's three-shot spectacle in the woodsy rough.

Forest Hills Country Club
Forest Hills Country Club invites golfers of all skill levels to drive, chip, and putt their way around its private nine-hole course, buttressed by the Great Miami River and native forestation. The course measures 2,267 yards from the back tees and boasts five par 3s and four par 4s. Though it may not have any par 5s, Forest Hills makes up for distance in scoring difficulty, with just one par 3 measuring fewer than 150 yards and cups that sneeze every time a ball comes near them. After a round, players can visit the concession stand to replenish calories lost from swinging clubs or cartwheeling from hole to hole.
