Originally inspired by billiards, golf quickly gained popularity as it took the game outdoors, plopped people into carts, and started encouraging players to scratch. Try to pocket par with today's Groupon to JC Melrose Country Club in Cheltenham. Choose between the following options:
- For $60, you get an 18-hole round of golf plus cart rental for two (up to a $120 value).
- For $110, you get an 18-hole round of golf plus cart rental for four (up to a $240 value).
Nonmember tee times may be scheduled from noon to 6 p.m. daily.
The JC Melrose Country Club caters to ironclubbers with an expansive 6,002-yard course. The well-manicured track—which leapt from the drafting boards of designers Alister MacKenzie and Perry Maxwell in 1927—challenges players with a gauntlet of narrow fairways, undulating greens, and cranky magpies. Groups pile into an electric cart between swings and cruise amid the divots and scenic greenery. At each hole, guests can tailor the match to their skill level without donning leaden shoulder pads thanks to three sets of tees.
JC Melrose Country Club's rates fluctuate throughout the week; plan ahead to make sure you're redeeming your Groupon at the most opportune time.
