Much like tug of war and horse costumes, golfing always works better when it involves more than one person. Invite the rest of your barbershop quartet to a day on the links with today's Groupon: for $75, you get 18 holes of golf, a cart rental, a large bucket of balls, breakfast or lunch with a beverage, and a hat or logo shirt at Hidden Valley Golf Club in Norco, about a 50-mile drive from Los Angeles. Depending on your choices, the final value can vary; however, today's deal covers up to $159.95 worth of expenses. In support of its fellow humans, Hidden Valley will also be donating $3 of its cut of every Groupon to breast cancer research.
The beautifully manicured golf course at Hidden Valley carefully incorporates the existing flora, streambeds, and outcropped rocks into its 6,860 yards of dimpled ball habitat, making players of every skill level feel as if they're teeing off in an unspoiled national park. A GPS-enabled cart will keep you from accidentally driving onto the Autobahn as you journey through a pleasantly challenging round of recreational golf (up to a $67 value, cart included). To warm up wrists before the game, guests can flick through a large bucket of balls on the practice green ($10), and once the 18th green has been conquered and purged of its mini-dragon guardians, it's off to the Villa Amalfi Ristorante to refuel. Sip on coffee, tea, or soda, and choose one food item from the breakfast or lunch menu, which includes tasty breakfast burritos ($6.95), mushroom-swiss burgers ($7.95), fried-chicken salad ($10.95), and more (up to $17.95 value). Customers also get their choice of either a hat ($20) or a golf shirt ($65), giving them a change of clothes when their astronaut suit is being dry-cleaned.
