Golf is doubly relaxing because it's a calm game in the verdant outdoors and because there are no families there having feelings at you. Get away for a while with this Groupon.

Candlestone Golf & Resort
Tall pines and hardwoods stand watch around Candlestone Golf & Resort, their reflections dappling the surface of marshy ponds and water traps that resemble pools where woodland sprites might splash. The par-72, Jerry Matthews-designed course has a timeless quality, though in fact it was completely renovated in 2008, setting new electric golf carts buzzing past sand traps redesigned to meet USGA standards. The resort’s two dozen guest rooms were recently remodeled, too, with flat-screen TVs, new mattresses, and a fresh supply of hardworking counting-sheep filling each serene, wood-accented space. Overlooking the golf course, the Water Tower Grille serves wine, beer, dessert cocktails, and crowd-pleasing dinner fare such as chipotle-honey barbecue ribs, pecan-crusted walleye, and hand-tossed pizza on a spacious deck or beside a roaring fireplace. In 2009, The Grand Rapids Press praised the Grille’s “friendly service and good food,” such as the “tender and moist” pork chops.
