Long ago, Scottish polo players longed for a game where they could explore scenic terrain, ride an obedient mechanical horse, and wear more courageously plaid knickers. Marvel in their subsequent invention with today's Groupon: for $27, you get to play 18 holes at Healdsburg Golf Club at Tayman Park (up to a $31 value), complete with a cart rental ($15 value), golf balls ($5 value), and your choice of a souvenir golf-bag tag ($6 value), a souvenir ball with logo ($3 value), or a ball marker ($3 value) (up to a $57 total value).
Nestled deep in Sonoma wine country, Healdsburg Golf Club is a PGA regulation course that's welcoming to the neophyte golfer and remains a challenge for more advanced gurus of the green. Often played through twice for a full 18-hole game, renowned golf-course engineer Alister MacKenzie reportedly had a hand in designing Healdsburg's 9-hole course. This hole-studded playscape has undergone recent updates, including a clubhouse renovation and the development of a practice area for players long absent from the game thanks to heroic treks through untamed greens in search of a new and innovative swing. Reserve a tee time and get ready to experience a satisfying game while enjoying views of oak trees, Fitch Mountain, and the Dry Creek Valley.
Healdsburg Golf Club
Healdsburg Golf Club carves through Wine Country, loping over undulating terrain marked by mature fir trees and views of Dry Creek Valley. Before taking the course, limber up on the all-weather driving range, with 18 stalls spread over three tiers that allow golfers to smack 300-yard drives or attempt to sink a two-story practice putt. The nine-hole course wraps well-manicured fairways around doglegs and surrounds greens with an entourage of bunkers and rolling mounds. Though suited for beginners, the course is a test for players of abilities, challenging golfers to hit a variety of shots, from long drives down par 5s to bicycle kicks past the goalkeeper on the eighth green. Golfers can relax after their rounds with a relaxing meal at the club’s bar and outdoor patio. The elevated patio overlooks the course as it fades into a sea of trees, misty mountains lining the horizon, and a wormhole leading to a secret nine-hole course on the moon.
