Like suntans and the ability to throw knives at apples on top of totem poles, golf skills disappear if you don't keep working at them. Keep the magic alive with today's Groupon: for $49, you get 18 holes of golf for two people and cart rental at The Highlands Golf Club, located in Hutchinson (up to a $102 value).
The Highlands Golf Club's Zoysia-grassed course welcomes golfers with rambling sand hills and local wildlife. Club swingers can start the day inside the fully stocked pro shop and end the day inside the 19th Hole, a savory bar and grill that allows golfers to discuss whether the wormhole to the fourth dimension outside of the 11th hole should be considered a water hazard. Coolers and ice are available to take on the course, though outside food and drink is prohibited, and one week's advance notice is required for all tee times.
The Highlands Golf Club's rates may fluctuate throughout the day and week; plan ahead to make sure you're redeeming your Groupon at the most opportune time.
Highlands Golf Club
The course architect incorporated the area's natural terrain when designing Highlands Golf Club's 18-hole course, sculpting narrow fairways through native tall grass, using sand hills as natural hazards, and enlisting the population of red foxes to serve as forecaddies. The end result is a 6,650-yard labyrinth of zoysia grass that winds through the rolling hills of Reno County. The challenging course makes accurate shot making a premium, as golfers must avoid multiple water hazards in addition to the tough lies that await off the fairways. Golfers can load their Scottish quivers with new golf balls after a preround visit to the pro shop and relax after rounds at the club's onsite restaurant.
