Much like confronting a former bully at a high-school reunion, playing golf requires an efficient swing and at least three friends to cheer you on. Take a stand against a shank-producing stroke with today's Groupon to Golden Tee at Tri County Golf Center. Choose between the following options:
- For $35, you get two rounds of nine-hole golf for two people, with cart rental and a hot dog and drink lunch for two during each outing (an $84 value). Range-ball buckets and rounds of golf may be used over multiple visits.
- For $29, you get five large buckets of range balls (a $65 value ).
The short par 3 course at Golden Tee challenges golfers with its undulating bent-grass greens, uphill and downhill shots, and multiple tee options. During nine-hole rounds, duffer duets can opt to swing from blue tees, boasting a driving span of 110–165 yards, or red tees, situated from 51 to 100 yards⎯or golfers can further challenge themselves by teeing off from a moving golf cart. Along the green jaunt, golfers will need to maneuver chips and drives past the course's shot-taxing obstacles, which include 11 bunkers, 4 golf-ball-hungry lakes, and a plethora of spontaneously combusting fairways. Each round adjourns with a pair of drinks and hot dogs, which are ceremonially chipped into their mouths via pitching wedge by a local golf pro.
With five buckets of 120 range balls apiece, wedge wielders can practice drives and mulligan excuses on Golden Tee’s manicured short-game area and sizable driving range, which houses 18 heated and covered bays, before hitting the links. Satisfy further hunger for victory at the snack bar or visit the well-stocked pro shop to eyeball a new set of irons or this season’s chicest open-toe cleats.
