Like the seedpod of the sacred lotus, golf courses are filled with holes and cause feelings of euphoria when chewed. Chew the scenery with today's Groupon: for $35, you get 18 holes of golf for two, plus cart rental (a $32 value each) and a large bucket of golf balls for the driving range (an $8 value), at Fox Run Golf Club in Council Bluffs (a $72 total value).
Long-game lobbers and short-game tappers hone their swings on Fox Run's parkland-style fairways and lovingly groomed greens. Golf carts ferry clubs and clubbers through the par 71 course, cruising over more than 6,200 yards peppered with arboreal obstacles, treacherous bunkers, and aquatic hazards in which players must outwit a vengeful Poseidon. Groupon customers also get a large bucket of balls to work out preround kinks at Fox Run's practice facilities. Take aim at 11 targets equipped with Laser Link flagsticks on an expansive driving range, learn about fingernail care on the chipping green, and develop a devastating tap on the spacious putting green. While not covered by this Groupon, the Den at Fox Run restaurant lets golfers loosen up with drinks and elegant fare after a day on the links.
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.
