A golf course is a scenic sanctuary where young blades of grass receive constant grooming and grizzled grains of sand can retire far away from merciless ocean waves. Explore a relaxing landscape with today’s Groupon: for $39, you get a golf outing for two at Lake San Marcos Country Club (up to a $90 total value). The outing includes:
- An 18-hole round of golf for two, including cart rental, on the south course (up to a $32 value/person)
- Two bags of driving-range balls (an $8 value each)
- Two hot dogs (a $3 value each)
- Two soft drinks (a $2 value each)<p>
Sculpted into the coastal foothills of San Diego County, Lake San Marcos Country Club’s south course spans 2,700 yards of lush fairways and well-manicured greens that coalesce in a relatively short, par-58 layout. Begin an afternoon of leisurely links-looping with a stint at the club’s full-length driving range, located at the main country club hub. Here, all-grass hitting stations provide more useful preparation for on-course conditions as well as an opportunity to seek divot-tearing vengeance on Mother Earth for a childhood of traumatizing grass stains. Then migrate to the south course, where clubbers can test their pin-hunting prowess at 14 par 3s while showcasing their long-ball skills on four par 4s that all exceed 250 yards in length. Bites of a hot dog can help ward off on-course hunger, and an icy soda can quench a parched mouth or form an impromptu water hazard when poured directly in opponents’ putting lines.

Lake San Marcos Country Club
Sculpted into the coastal foothills of San Diego County, Lake San Marcos Country Club’s North Course spans 6,426 yards of lush fairways and well-manicured greens. Throughout the course, mature trees await wayward orbs on the edges of fairways, and serpentine bodies of water crisscross fairways, punishing duffers for errant shots. Before taking to the links, golfers can prepare with a stint at the club’s full-length driving range, where all-grass hitting stations emulate on-course conditions as well as an opportunity to seek vengeance on Mother Earth for a lifetime of traumatizing grass stains. Casual eats at Gordon’s on the Green help restore energy after rounds that include the treacherous trek up the 12th hole—a 606-yard par 5 that runs almost entirely uphill. Those looking for a quick golf experience akin to reading the abridged version of Jack Nicklaus’s cookbook can take to the South Course, a par 58 executive layout.
