What You'll Get
Like surgery, golf requires a calm mind, a steady hand, and the awareness to yell "Fore!" after an accidental slice. Hone a surgically precise swing with today's Groupon: for $45, you get one round of golf for two, a cart rental, and two large buckets of balls for the driving range at Mallard Pointe Golf Course in Sardis, Mississippi (up to a $92 value).
Mallard Pointe's grand rolling hills and hidden bunkers unfurl for golfers of all skills levels to indulge in a leisurely game full of drives, chips, and putts set against the picturesque Lake Sardis. The day starts out in the practice area, complete with a green, bunker, and driving range, where two large buckets of balls are slowly depleted in the war against long-distance golf targets and encroaching gophers. Once drivers are primed and ready, a shining stallion golf cart ushers the two friendly opponents through Mallard Pointe's 18-hole course as they're serenaded by the gentle sounds of nature in the nearby lake. Though a group of bunkers, hills, water traps, and feisty linebackers attempt to inhibit low-scoring completion of this par 72 course, the welcoming grassy surfaces of the vast fairways and wide greens allow an enjoyable game for new golfers or masters of the iron dowel.
Mallard Pointe Golf Club offers its own deals at certain times of the week; plan ahead to make sure you're redeeming your Groupon at the most opportune time.

About Mallard Pointe Golf Course
Tucked northwest of Sardis Lake just above John W. Kyle State Park, Mallard Pointe Golf Course showcases undulating bermuda-grass fairways that offer sweeping views of the area's towering trees. Designed by Bob Cupp, the course’s layout challenges players with back-to-back par 5s on the lengthy 6th and 7th holes, as well as on the 10th and 16th holes, requiring players to break at least once for s’mores while trekking from tee to green. Before hitting the fairways, swingers can take advantage of an extensive practice area consisting of a 350-yard driving range with six target greens and 100 hitting stations, a 10-acre grass-tee area, and a practice fairway bunker.
