Golf is considered a gentleman's game due to its emphasis on proper etiquette, color-coordinated outfits, and the removal of all brass knuckles and inflatable billy clubs before competition. Tip your tam to this refined game with today's Groupon: for $30, you get 18 holes of golf for two, including cart rental, at Honeywell Golf Course in Wabash (up to a $74 value).
Picturesque landscaping and above-average speed greens mark the challenging 18 holes at Honeywell Golf Course. Established in 1944 as a private course situated on the elegant Honeywell estate, landscape architect Arthur Hills expanded the terrain through the family's formal gardens in 1980, blending the old and new styles as seamlessly as a miniskirt made from buffalo-head nickels. Bunkers shelter the undulating front nines from errant shots and scantily clad sunbathers, and emerald fairways wend through the old garden's flowering shrubs and trees toward short, tighter terrain. Swingers looking for a challenge will enjoy testing their club’s mettle on Hills's addition, confronting some of the only back-to-back par-3 holes in the state.
After the game, weary cleat-wearers can sink their teeth into something more nutritious than sand at the Duffers Retreat snack bar and survey the verdant course from within a wood-slatted ranch-style clubhouse. Plaid-clad pairs should plan to call ahead to schedule a tee time and can visit the website to check current course weather conditions and the performance of their mouse.
