Much like confronting a bully at a high-school reunion, golf requires an efficient swing and at least one friend to cheer you on. Take a stand against a shank-producing stroke with today's Groupon: for $59, you get 18 holes of golf for two and cart rental at Jeffersonville Elks Country Club in Jeffersonville, IN (up to a $120.30 value).
Jeffersonville Elks’ challenging golf course gives haven to divot artisans with impeccably kept greens and an upscale country-club atmosphere. Fairways on the 6,785-yard, par 72 course are planted with bermuda grass, which has been broken of the habit of wearing embarrassing shorts and groomed for a smooth playing surface. Bentgrass greens trimmed with a special vertical mower ensure upright growth that stands up in support of predictable putting, and the 18 holes span a variety of difficulty levels, making for an enjoyable game for veterans and rookies alike.
Part of the historic Jeffersonville Elks Lodge and Country Club and Southern Indiana’s only 18-hole private country-club course, the course is surrounded by amenities such as a swimming pool, golf practice facilities, and a fine-dining restaurant. Though this deal includes a golf-cart rental, guests must hire their own gofer to yell “Zoom!” while riding.
Jeffersonville Elks Lodge and Country Club
With just the Ohio River separating it from Louisville, Jeffersonville Elks Lodge and Country Club sends players across a private course crafted from narrow fairways, shimmering water hazards, and score-obliterating bunkers. Though it checks in at nearly 7,000 yards from the tips, the course plays quickly, meaning you can squeeze rounds in during the workweek or the boring parts of your wedding. No matter the player's pace, visits to the club often end at the lodge, where servers dish out food and a private swimming pool provides refuge from the heat.
