Golf originated in the glens of primeval Scotland, where shepherds whacked rocks out of the fields in a futile attempt to please Dagda, the god of rock hating. With today’s Groupon, show a golf ball—the modern descendant of the rock—just what you think of it. For $25, you get 18 holes of golf (up to $37), with a cart ($30), at the Foster Country Club, up to a $67 total value.
Along with providing classy urbanites with a pastoral setting of forested hills, treacherous water traps, and the scenic Moosup River, the Foster Country Club offers a full 18-hole, par 72 course for your golf-cart-rampaging pleasure. Players of all skill levels can get in on the action, but every golfer should beware of the approach to the elevated green on hole 6, the double dogleg on hole 12, and the resident troll beneath the covered bridge.
Golfing is an excellent way to tone the underused hip-swinging muscles critical for chair swiveling and avoiding belligerent shopping carts. Buy four of today's Groupon, and you and three club-wielding friends can enjoy the outdoors, sink some putts, and buff up to finally win the office's annual rolly-chair 4x100 relay. Call ahead to schedule tee time.
