Like neurologists, golfers' reputations rely on their ability to minimize strokes and refrain from catapulting their equipment into nearby lakes when frustrated. Keep a steady hand and an even temper with today's Groupon: for $30, you get an 18-hole round of golf, cart rental, and $5 credit toward drinks or fare on the course or at the club grill at LaTour Golf Club (up to a $74 value) in Mathews, about an hour southwest of New Orleans.
With a pristine course codesigned by PGA Champion David Toms, LaTour Golf Club challenges golfers to hole their dimpled globes amidst a striking scenic landscape. Fine-tune your bag of sticks and crisscross the 7,232-yard course layout, which boasts strategically placed water holes and pure white sand traps along with MiniVerde Ultra Dwarf Bermudagrass greens. Players can compensate for lack of pendulum proficiency or a golf bag full of whittled broomsticks by selecting any of the four tee boxes available at each hole. After the last putt and strut, fairway pharaohs can brag about scorecard results at JB's Grill while savoring a menu of juicy burgers ($8–$9) and bayou go-tos such as the cajun brisket po’ boy ($9). See the Fine Print for tee-time availability for this deal.
LaTour's rates fluctuate throughout the week, depending on tee time; plan ahead to make sure you're redeeming your Groupon at the most opportune time.
