The invention of the golf cart was eagerly embraced by golfers tired of riding stubborn, skittish caddies. Dig in your heels with today's Groupon: for $21, you get 18 holes of golf, cart rental, and one bucket of driving-range balls at Grand Island Club (a $42 value), located on Grand Island Drive.
Voted Albany's Best Golf Course by CityVoter in 2009, Grand Island provides club wielders of all skill levels 18 holes and more than 7,000 yards of Bermuda-green bliss. Surrounded by Georgia's natural, peaceful beauty and wildlife, golfers can enjoy aiming for birdies, eagles, and dodos on finely manicured fairways. Strategically placed bogie-bunkers keep the par 72 course interesting while containing the perfect kind of sand for historically accurate castle building.
Practice your swing without par peer pressure with a bucket of balls at Grand Island's 70-tee driving range. While at the course, visit the pro shop, which stocks popular brands of golf apparel and equipment and is the area's largest dealer of FootJoy PF Flyers. Grand Island Club is open to the public, so anyone with a presentable plaid tuxedo is welcome.
