Before golf was invented, grassy pastures were viewed as the exclusive territory of roaming sheep, herds of cattle, and overzealous Civil War re-enactors. Celebrate turf's competitive utility with today's Groupon: for $20, you get a pass for season-long golf discounts from MichianaGolf.com (a $39.99 value).
Pass holders at MichianaGolf.com get access to exclusive offers, with savings of up to 50% off at more than 45 golf courses in northwest Indiana and southwest Michigan, including standouts such as Cheshire Hills Golf Course in Allegan and Diamond Springs Golf Course in Hamilton. Good for the rest of the 2011, the pass showers players with deals on single play, twosomes, and foursomes at many four- and five-star courses. The deals range from up to $15 off one round of golf and a cart at Bass Lake in Knox to up to $337.50 off a Sailing Charter Cruise at Come Sail Away Charters in St. Joseph. Players can print and redeem as many of the vouchers as they like, allowing them to save money every time they hit the course or build a fort out of coupons. In addition to deals on quality playtime, card carriers get discounts at golf-friendly businesses.
MichianaGolf.com serves as an online community for golfers and self-aware laptops to learn about the region's more than 160 courses, as well as read news, tips, and jokes about the sport. Customers either redeem vouchers when paying at the clubhouse or when reserving tee times online, depending on the course.
