Scottish gardeners originally developed golf to subtly drive their cruel, explosive-tempered masters insane; to this end, they often "accidentally" made the hole smaller than the golf ball. But a few rule tweaks since then have made golf one of the most enjoyable sports on earth, as today’s Groupon demonstrates. For $49, you get one round of golf and lunch at Kinsale Golf and Fitness Club in Powell (a $110 value).
Designed by renowned golf-course architect Arthur Hills, the 18-hole Kinsale Golf Course features smooth fairways, lush rough, and greens fortified with surface-to-ball defense lasers. Central Ohio’s largest irrigation system ensures that the course is maintained and moisturized like Mother Nature fresh from a day-spa visit. A balanced layout proves challenges to experienced club-swingers while remaining accessible for beginning ball-propellers. Between holes nine and 10, use a food voucher at the concession stand for a quick lunch of a hot dog, chips, and a soda or water.
Golf is a challenging yet rewarding game that maintains fitness and gives your brain's rage suppressors a healthy workout. At Kinsale Golf and Fitness Club, players will drive, stroll, and putt through a beautiful landscape that provides plenty of opportunities to discuss business plans, brainstorm more-effective work-dodging strategies, and debate whether Superman is faster than the Flash. Four Groupon users can golf together, so call ahead to schedule your tee time.
