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. Enjoy a sophisticated, nonviolent sport with today's Groupon: for $25, you get one round of golf and a cart rental at Luck Golf Course in Luck, Wisconsin (up to a $50 value).
Since 1938, club-toting players have swarmed Luck Golf Course's picturesque fairways and boldly stared into its challenging holes. With pars ranging from 3 to 5 and more than 6,100 yards of club-swinging paradise stretching out before them, golfers of every skill level will have plenty of chances to practice their slice and explore the course's tree-lined fairways. Views of Big Butternut Lake entertain eyes from select spots along the way, and elevation changes and scenery shifts transport ball clubbers from hardwood forest to lakeside rolling hills. Weary feet escape a terrible walking fate thanks to the golf carts, which speed players from hole to hole as they compete for the highest score. Before, after, or before and after a game, players can visit the clubhouse to utterly destroy hunger, feasting on the hometown butchers' grilled bratwurst, handmade hot dogs, or a bevy of lunchtime delicacies such as sandwiches, hamburgers, or open-faced Twinkies, though food and drink are not included in this Groupon.

Luck Golf Course
Breezes from Big Butternut Lake coil through the surrounding hardwood forests, sweeping piney air across the fairways at Luck Golf Course. The 6,093-yard, par-71 course rests on the lake's southern shore, where undulating terrain offers scenic vistas of the lake's glassy surface. Though tree-lined fairways are a constant throughout the course, golfers will notice a shift in terrain midway through the round. Ten holes snake through pine trees and hardwoods, while the other eight regular holes and six black holes roam over rolling countryside dotted with maples and oak trees. Water hazards also come into play on 12 holes, including on the seventh—a par-four rated as the course's most difficult hole—where a pond fronts the green to summon errant approach shots and golf carts in need of a bath.
