Like suntans and the ability to throw knives at apples on top of totem poles, golf skills disappear if you don't keep working at them. Keep the magic alive with today's Groupon: for $29, you get 18 holes of golf, including cart rental and access to the driving range, at Forest Oaks Country Club (a $61 value). Host of the PGA Tour's Wyndham Championship from 1977 to 2007, Forest Oaks Country Club’s private course features a classic layout originally designed by the celebrated Ellis Maples. Beautifully conditioned fairways and greens provide a finely manicured playing surface for beginning swingers and old hands alike. Motor in luxury through the club’s Bermuda grasses, which stay strong through the area’s seasonal extremes, or swing by the driving range to swing through a few mood swings—or to hit golf balls.
Proehlific Club at Forest Oaks
Host of the PGA’s Wyndham Championship from 1977 to 2007, Proehlific Club at Forest Oaks's private course incorporates natural elements such as looming trees and severely sloping hills with manmade sand traps and water obstacles, challenging beginning and experienced golfers alike. Opened in 1962, the terrain was renovated in 2002 after the renowned Love Golf Design group reached out to professional golfers to find out what makes an ideal course. The main improvement, helmed by Davis Love III, was the resprigging of the fairway with bermuda grass, a strain of turf that can handle extreme temperature changes, and a redesign of the new greens. The course was featured on the PGA for over 30 years, and was enjoyed by Davis Love III as well as Rocco Mediate and many other professionals. While the golf course is the main attraction, the club also houses a pro shop, a 25-yard professional-size swimming pool, tennis courts, and a restaurant.
