Golf brings a sense of childhood play back into adult life, much like playing video games at the office or folding a tax return into an origami dinosaur. Goof off respectably with today's Groupon: for $12, you get a 2011 Indiana Golf Pass from the Indiana Golf Office (a $25 value), good for discounted rates on greens and cart fees at select courses throughout Indiana.
More than 75 participating courses welcome Indiana Golf Pass holders to their lush and verdant terrains. Card-bearing putt pendulators can head straight to their preferred course for discounted play, their pass allowing them to forgo membership fees and arcane initiation rites such as quoting the entirety of Caddyshack in pig Latin. Passes are chipped to doorsteps about two weeks after orders are placed. Proceeds help support the Indiana Golf Foundation's junior golf programs, which bring healthy outdoor recreation into the lives of kids who might otherwise never know how to spot and avoid a fang-lined sand trap.
