Well-rounded golfers must master a variety of skills, including driving, reading putts, and suppressing the part of the brain that associates high scores with victory. Chip away at preconceived notions with today’s Groupon: for $35, you get a golf outing for two at Fox Run Golf Club in Council Bluffs (up to a $72 total value). Rounds can be scheduled at any time Monday–Friday and after 11 a.m. on Saturday and Sunday. The outing includes the following:
- An 18-hole round of golf for two with a cart rental (up to a $32 value/person)
- One large, shared bucket of range balls (an $8 value)</p>
Fox Run Golf Club’s 18-hole, 6,200-yard course intermingles a links-style layout into the lush terrain of a parkland setting. Upon arrival, divot-tearing duos receive one large bucket of balls to juggle collaboratively or launch across the club’s expansive driving range, which features 11 targets with yardages marked by Laser Link flagsticks. After swings have been duly loosened, players can captain a golf cart to the first tee to embark on an odyssey through emerald corridors as they snake alongside stately residences and tranquil waters. The generous grassy monolith appeals to players of all abilities by offering four tee options and complimentary blades of grass to anyone who shoots under par.
Fox Run Golf Club’s rates fluctuate throughout the day and week.
Fox Run Golf Club
Fox Run Golf Club prides itself as a course that challenges boundaries. From a design perspective, it represents the two different architectural models of golf courses, at points immersing golfers in a wooded, parkland setting and, elsewhere, challenging them to display deft control over an open, links-style layout. A semiprivate club, Fox Run also eliminates the barrier between public courses and members-only clubs, inviting daily fee players and members alike to enjoy manicured grounds worthy of an exclusive club or a course covered in Persian rugs. Measuring 6,200 yards from the back tees, the layout provides four tee options from which golfers can play. On the driving range, players can calibrate their swings while aiming at 11 targets equipped with Laser Link flagsticks, which ensure that distances are accurately measured and also to make sure pins don’t run away to pursue careers as javelins. Off the course, guests can relax in The Den at Fox Run, which serves up drinks and casual grill food.
