Golf is considered a gentlemen's game due to its emphasis on proper etiquette, color-coordinated outfits, and the removal of all brass knuckles and inflatable billy clubs before competition. Fight fair with today's Groupon: for $99, you get a one-month golf membership at Glen Acres Golf & Country Club (a $289.45 value).
Glen Acres Golf & Country club challenges irons to swing for its par-71 benchmark on 6,088 yards of secluded fairways. A one-month membership grants long- and short-gamers unlimited use of the 9-hole, 18-tee course, including its driving ranges and practice areas. Evaluate the layout with a hole-by-hole analysis, strategizing how to avoid ball-swallowing bunkers and aqueous interludes with water hazards. Golfers also get the power to bring up to three guests to the course on one occasion during the month, additional green fees not included. After catching up to the course's notoriously speedy greens, members get designated times to leisurely explore the club's facilities, including member dining areas, swimming pools, and green rooms where members can indulge in boat envy in private.
Designed and built by renowned architect Arthur Vernon Macan in 1924, Glen Acres has earned a reputation as one of the most challenging private golf courses in the Puget Sound vicinity. Macan's course design allows for swift earth drainage, curbing soggy setbacks around putting surfaces that threaten the elastic ankle bands of your lucky knickers. Although members are not required to pay the club's initiation fee for this Groupon, those who choose to continue with a yearlong golf membership enrollment must pay a one-time initiation fee.
