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: for $199, you get a Level Four membership to Hydeaway Golf Club in Tecumseh (a $508.50 value). Members who book tee times online receive the following discounted green fees until December 15, 2012 (standard HST not included):
- $8 for a nine-hole walking round
- $10 for an 18-hole walking round
- $15 for a nine-hole round with GasCar
- $17.70 for an 18-hole round with GasCar<p>
Open all year, the Hydeaway Golf Club entices golfers with a variety of dogleg and straightaway holes on its par 71 course sprawled across 130 acres of lush terrain. Grassy fairways, hole-altering ponds, and hungry lawn nymphs challenge even the most skilled of divot-diggers, and the course’s tight fairways reward accurate hitting and precise shot-making. Water hazards rear their hydraulic heads on multiple holes, including the daunting fourth hole, where players will be tempted to drive over the meaty section of a right-side pond in order cut the corner off of a dramatic dogleg right. Golfers can choose to loop the emerald links on their own bipedal steam or enlist a compassionate GasCar to help hunt down balls and console players after errant drives or particularly biting remarks from heckling ballwashers. Membership Groupons purchased as gifts can be exchanged for gift cards in the Pro Shop December 5-7.
Though Hydeaway Golf Club sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
Hydeaway Golf Club
Open year round, Hydeaway Golf Club's 18-hole, par 71 course unfurls across 130 acres of kempt fairways framed by trees and tranquil ponds. Water hazards come into play on more than half of the holes, creating strategic quandaries such as when to attempt to carry a distant pond and how to tell if provocative messages in a bottle were intended for you. Tall tree lines further complicate golfers' passage, stretching out their twiggy arms in a quenchless desire to scuff up dimpled orbs. Golfers can choose to loop the emerald links on their own bipedal steam or enlist a GasCar golf cart to help hunt down errant balls or misplaced playing partners.
