In a game of golf, as in the audience of an amateur juggling competition, it's best to stay low. Hunt down a friendly game with today's Groupon: for $35, you get 18 holes of golf with a cart for two people at Glenmary Country Club (up to a $70 value).
An 18-hole, par 72 golf course undulates across the grounds of Glenmary Country Club. The front nine showcase picturesque holes six and seven, both par 4 and nestled into woods with lush foliage framing each fairway like a leafy, squirrel-infested beard. With a large water hazard guarding the 12th hole, golfers aim to vault their shots over the water and onto the green using a 9-iron, wedge, or T-shirt cannon. Before hitting the links, warm up short games at the course's pitching and putting greens or at one of its two outdoor bays for driving.
Glenmary Country Club
The 18-hole course at Glenmary Country Club presents players of every ability level a challenging test of their capacity for long, booming drives and cup-seeking putts. If club swingers are to threaten the course par of 72, they must first surmount a battery of hazards that range from the synthetic, such as strategically placed bunkers, to the natural, such as trees and a tendency to trip on shoelaces. Golfers pursuing better on-the-course performance can work on whittling away strokes on the pitching and putting green, or practice strokes of an altogether different sort on the club's tennis courts or in the club pool.
