The dimples on a golf ball help it fly farther with greater accuracy, just like the dimples on a baby help it steal candy from gullible strangers. Find your adorably sporty sweet spots with today's Groupon: for $28, you get nine holes of golf for two and cart rental at Metchosin Golf Course & Country Club (up to a $57.12 value, including HST).
At Metchosin, golfers send balls soaring through nine holes of wide fairways and verdant greens. Carts ferry players to par 3 and 4 holes, where clubs whack balls over lush grass and varied hazards, including sand traps, ponds, and outsize Venus flytraps. Meanwhile, snowy mountain peaks, sprawling trees, and local wildlife supply scenic views and inspire midswing reveries. On breaks, golfers can loll in the course's solid-wood gazebo or drop into the clubhouse, where bartenders pour an array of libations as televisions entertain idling athletes by transforming into tap-dancing Victrolas.
Metchosin Golf & Country Club
The blue and white peaks of the Olympic Mountains overlook the greens at Metchosin Golf & Country Club, where westerly breezes from the Salish Sea stir the pompoms of golfers' hats. Fir trees and deciduous flora have grown up alongside the course's 2,760 yards for more than four decades. The nine-hole, par-34 layout consists mostly of par 4s. Sand traps hug the edges of the putting greens on holes 1, 3, 6, and 9, their coarse textures thwarting clubs and stupefying golfers with the geological miracle called sand.
Between Tuesday and Thursday, the course invites golfers to Nine and Dine during afternoons or evenings. The event pairs nine holes of golf with repast such as flat-iron steaks, pork back ribs, and vegetarian burgers.
