It’s difficult to hit a target from far away, which is why holes-in-one are rare and the Goodyear blimp has never been shot successfully with an arrow. Drive hard with a vengeance, thanks to today’s Groupon: for $35, you get an 18-hole round of golf for two people, including cart rental, at Glenmary Country Club (up to a $70 value).
Glenmary Country Club’s 18-hole golf course sprawls across 6,542 yards of carefully cut fairways as they cleave through lofty trees and neighboring residences. Slick bentgrass greens, multiple water hazards, and horn-blasting garden gnomes supply the bulk of the difficulty on this relatively challenging course, which plays to a par 72 from all three tee options. Divot-tearing duos can loop the emerald links astride a golf cart to save their strength for towering drives and confronting the trash-talking squirrels hiding in the dense tree lines that surround holes six and seven. Glenmary Country Club enforces a dress code that requires all players to wear a collared shirt and prohibits denim.

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.
