What You'll Get
Like painting a portrait or fixing a computer, completing a round of golf is always more impressive when it’s done in the pouring rain. Enjoy equally impressive fair-weathered fores with today's Groupon: for $35, you get a round of golf for two with cart rental at Iroquois Golf Club (up to a $102 value).
Iroquois Golf Club invites golfing duos to swing clubs on an 18-hole golf course filled with par 3, 4, and 5 holes that wind along the seaway. Carts drive across the course's 6,100 yards to ferry players to blue, yellow, or red tee boxes, where, after a 10-second countdown, golf balls ignite their engines, launch, and navigate around bunkers, streams, and the banks of the St. Lawrence River. Breezes roll off the water as irons slap balls down 538 yards of fairway on hole 16. To finish rounds, balls take flight over water and across two sand bunkers that flank hole 18's green and double as a wormhole for time-travelling xerocoles.
Take a break inside the course's new clubhouse, or sate stomachs at the Four Seasons Restaurant (refreshments not included in the cost of this Groupon). Between swings, players can watch vessels floating along the river and exchange golf tips with the blue herrings that inhabit the course's many ponds and inlets. Patrons who arrive by plane at the Iroquois Air Strip or by boat at the Iroquois Marine Services can call the golf club and arrange for a shuttle to drive them to and from the course.
Iroquois Golf Club's prices vary depending on the time of day and day of the week. They also offer their own discount, but this Groupon still represents the best value.

About Iroquois Golf Club
Sculpted into the banks of the St. Lawrence River, Iroquois Golf Club’s links-style course spans 6,158 yards of gently undulating terrain. As players traverse the picturesque par 72, riverside winds, relatively sparse trees, and scorecards printed in Gaelic channel the coastal charms of the old courses of the Emerald Isle. Intervening waterways appear on all but three holes, placing confident swings and sound course management at a premium. Rounds conclude with a dramatic finish at the par 3 18th hole, where approach shots must send golf balls soaring over a water hazard that sits between tee and green and houses a community of great blue herons who raise their young on a golf ball-based diet. Patrons who arrive by plane at the Iroquois Air Strip or by boat at the Iroquois Marine Services can call the golf club and arrange for a shuttle to drive them to and from the course.
