What You'll Get
Golf is considered a gentleman's game because of its emphasis on proper etiquette, color-coordinated outfits, and the removal of all brass knuckles and inflatable billy clubs before competition. Throw down the dueling golf gloves with today's Groupon: for $48, you get 18 holes of golf for two and cart rental (up to a $105.99 value, including tax) at King's Creek Golf Club in Spring Hill.
Designed by golf legend Arnold Palmer, the course at King's Creek weaves three natural creeks through beveled bunkers and bentgrass greens. Reflecting the natural stone walls along several of the greens' banks, a wall of trees encloses the course, whose serene landscape and native wildlife have earned it a designation as an Audubon sanctuary. The front and back nines, each a par 35, contain balanced series of holes, with the total play area containing five sets of tees and measuring up to 6,807 yards. Golfers are required to wear collared shirts throughout the facility and conserve their playing time to four hours or less. However, each golf cart is equipped with a GPS unit to keep track of time, provide accurate yardages at each hole, and guide the tiny astronauts piloting from inside each ball to a safe splashdown landing in the pond.
King's Creek Golf Club's rates fluctuate throughout the week.

About King's Creek Golf Club
Designed by legendary golfer and course designer Arnold Palmer, King's Creek Golf Club’s 18-hole, 6,807-yard course meanders through a tapestry of winding creeks and dense tree lines. Stately stone walls run along the banks of several greens, forming a natural barrier to protect the course from rogue lawnmowers. Water comes into play on the majority of the holes, complicating drives and approaches as players advance toward each contoured bent-grass green. Clubbers cruise the course astride a GPS-equipped golf cart, which provides accurate yardages to each green and provides a bird’s-eye view of upcoming hazards so players don’t have to pay off dubious waterfowl. King's Creek Golf Club fosters preround warm-ups with practice facilities that include a grass-tee driving range and a putting green.
