Although classic etiquette remains standard in golf, cross-training players are revolutionizing the game with moves from other sports, such as the homerun drive and the 360-degree tomahawk putt. Get in the game with today’s Groupon: for $40, you get 18 holes of golf with a cart and a sleeve of three Nike Mojo golf balls at the The Overlook Golf Club (up to a $76 value), located 45 minutes north of Boston in Hollis, New Hampshire.
The Overlook Golf Club attracts swinging sultans and putting princesses with 18 challenging holes on a beautifully manicured championship golf course. Situated along the breathtaking Nashua River, this traditionally designed course boasts natural wetlands, impressively sculptured bunkers, and pine-tree lined fairways whose sight and scent remind players of their favorite air fresheners. With miles of river frontage, this secluded public course blossoms with greenery, providing a welcome respite for golfers and teary reminiscences for home-sick hobbits.
Celebrate a hole-in-one or agonize about finishing 400 points over par at the Overlook Café over a beer or cocktail, or restore depleted energy reserves with a full menu of breakfast, lunch, and dinner options. Habitual mini golfers can get adopt a full-size disguise at the pro shop, which offers brand-name equipment and men's and women's outwear from top brands such as Cutter & Buck, Callaway, and Under Armour.
