Top golfers launch their balls across courses with amazing accuracy, equivalent to the Statue of Liberty tossing horseshoes around the Washington Monument. High-five with the Eiffel Tower with today's Groupon: for $52, you get an 18-hole round of golf for two with a cart at Woodbine Golf Course (up to a $120 value), located in Homer Glen.
Designed by PGA professional Gordon Cunningham, Woodbine Golf Course welcomes linkspeople with 6,020 yards of challenging tracts populated with fully watered bent-grass tees, greens, and fairways. Five ponds, numerous bunkers, natural-grass-preservation areas, and clusters of grabby-branched trees provide varying challenges for both low- and high-handicap golfers. Dot the green canvas with wayward white spheres and heartbreakingly close putts, while easing wear and tear on steel-toed ballet slippers with a provided cart. After putting dimpled companions to bed, golfers can sneak quietly away to Woodbine's clubhouse, replete with flat-screen TVs, a long, wooden bar, and a stone fireplace, providing a perfect backdrop for tall tales about the mysterious caddie with a strong resemblance to Will Smith.
Woodbine Golf Course's rates vary throughout the week.
Woodbine Golf Course
Designed in a country-club style by PGA professional Gordon Cunningham, Woodbine Golf Course welcomes linkspeople with 6,020 yards of challenging tracts populated with bentgrass tees, fairways, and greens. The layout’s five ponds, natural-grass preservation areas, and clusters of grabby-branched trees have beckoned both low- and high-handicap golfers for nearly a quarter of a century. A contorted fairway and aquatic hazard make the 14th hole the course’s hardest, and the 4th hole ranks second hardest with a tricky dogleg left whose elbow hosts a sand bunker that lures distractible golfers with a siren song of sandcastles.
After games, golfers can retreat to Woodbine's clubhouse. At the Timber Restaurant and Bar, flat-screen TVs flicker above a long wooden bar, diners feast on pasta and pot roast, and a stone fireplace provides the ideal backdrop for tales about 9-irons that transformed into 10-irons with hard work and a little gumption.
