Without golf courses, argyle-clad youngsters would be forced to hit tiny white balls into the rolling urban landscape, resulting in clogged sewer systems and a misguided never-ending Easter egg hunt. Avoid the confusion with today’s Groupon: for $360, you get a one-month trial membership at Indian Hill Country Club in Newington (a $720 value). Choose one month from the following options: May, June, July, August, or September.
Indian Hill Country Club, one of the founding golf courses in Connecticut, has four sets of tees to accommodate power drivers and short strokers on up to 6,521 yards. The golf course at Indian Hill Country Club—a private club since 1899—was redesigned in 1924 by Robert Jack Ross and overflows with friendly golfing extraordinaires. Trial members can stroll the greens any time Monday through Friday, and after 11 a.m. on weekends and holidays and, with no restrictions on the number of outings and no green fees, marathon golfers can practice their swing until the sprinklers come on or the course is overrun with caped vampire bats. After the honeymoon month is over, trial members can become a full-time member by applying the value of this Groupon to a one-year commitment package.
