• For $35, you get one round of golf for two on the championship course with cart rental Monday-Friday (up to a $74 value).

Nestled amid the Kaskaskia’s placid creek tributaries, Governors Run’s 18-hole par 72 course unfolds across more than 7,000 yards of lush forestry and picturesque ponds, nabbing it a 4.5 star rating from Golf Digest. Grab a fellow club fan and cruise carts across the vast prairieland pervading the first nine holes, teeing off from a quintet of tees designed to accommodate club swingers of all stripes. Idyllic bridges grant peaceful passage over the course’s 13 shimmering lakes, drawing golfers toward the back nine’s verdant woodlands, where accuracy and precision triumph over the hollering of motivational maxims at stubbornly inert orbs.
With tiny pencils tucked away, guests can peruse the on-site pro shop for the latest in golf tackle, or triumphantly clink clubs with their golfmate while noshing on daily lunch specials and chocolate-laced score sheets at the course’s restaurant (not included with this Groupon).
