Long ago, Scottish polo players longed for a game in which 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 to Hughes Creek Golf Club in Elburn. This Groupon is valid anytime Monday–Thursday and after noon Friday–Sunday. Choose between the following options:
- For $34, you get 18 holes of golf for two, plus cart rental (up to $120 value).
- For $56, you get 18 holes of golf for four, plus cart rentals (up to $240 value).
Hughes Creek Golf Club envelops golfers in 170 tranquil acres of manicured Kane County farmland while challenging their club knowhow on 18 formidable holes. Groups of two or four toss their golf-ball tenderizers into the back of their carts and traverse Hughes Creek's scenic stretches of gentle acclivities, wetlands, and indigenous greenery populated by red-winged blackbirds and gopher puppets. Far from noisy roads and distracting development, iron wielders can settle into their peaceful surroundings, focusing on developing a proper swing technique and a crystal-clear pronunciation of “fore.” Each hole sports several tee boxes and fairway layouts that, like road trips in canyon country, alternate between long drives and short drops, posing course conquistadors with challenging club choices. Postmatch, swingers can head into the club restaurant for a Friday-night fish fry of catfish ($9.75), perch ($9), or cod ($9.95).
