Like breaking a piñata, excelling at golf requires intense concentration, a precise swing, and an unending hunger for miniature Almond Joys. Savor the sweetness of sport with today's Groupon: for $79, you get 18 holes of golf (an $80 value), carts (a $52 value), and lunch for four (a $30 value) at Lake Doster Golf Club in Plainwell (a $162 total value).
A semiprivate club that opens its doors for a public of players, Lake Doster Golf Club slingshots its ball strikers toward golf greatness with a scenic and challenging course. Tee thwackers may warm up on the range or putting green before grabbing a cart and embarking upon their clubbing adventure. Lake Doster's course is both stern and forgiving, featuring curvaceous fairways, isolated greens, and the signature "Little Monster," known for its sand-trap-surrounded green and luxurious winter pelt. An 18-hole round for four players is included in today's deal, fueling friendly competitions of putting prowess and extreme golf-cart wheelies while creating cherished memories.
Like marathons and marathon viewings of eating marathons, playing 18 holes can work up an appetite, which is easily satiated at Lake Dorster's course-side restaurant. A quartet of comrades may spend $7.50 each toward a menu of lunchy favorites. Sink teeth into sandwiches such as the marinated chicken, snuggled in a kaiser roll with lettuce, tomato, and onion ($7.50), or the BLT, whose maple-smoked bacon on toasted bread is the pride of sap trees and acronyms everywhere ($7.50).
