Golfing is now the only pastime that allows players to launch spheres across majestic landscapes, an exclusive trait ever since mountaintop skee-ball was outlawed. Enjoy the scenic sport with today's Groupon: for $20, you get a six-course pass from Wisconsin Classic Golf Tour (a $40 value).
With more than 220 courses throughout Wisconsin and the Upper Peninsula in its association, Wisconsin Classic Golf Tour's membership packages offer steep discounts to Midwestern golf enthusiasts. The discounts offered for each course vary from waived course and cart fees to percentages off, but expect to save over $30 per course on average. The trial pass lets golfers check out six 18-hole courses with discounts, such as a complimentary green fee for up to four plays (cart required) at Kestrel Ridge Golf Club, a 50% discount for two plays at Grand Geneva Brute or Highlands, or two-for-one deal at Lake Windsor Golf Club, which allows a friend to play for free after you’ve paid full price for your own green fee. With this deal, golf gurus can peruse the rolling fairways of Edelweiss Chalet Country Club in New Glarus and the disco-ball-growing trees of Platteville Golf and Country Club without having to play full price.
In addition to the markdown-entitling card, the membership also grants special prizes to those who score holes in one or eagles, instilling additional envy in less coordinated golf buddies.
Wisconsin Classic Golf Tour
With 240 participating courses spread across Wisconsin and Michigan's Upper Peninsula, Wisconsin Classic Golf Tour’s membership packages grant golfers a chance to tour the region’s diverse links. The discounts offered for each course vary from waived green fees and cart fees to specific percentages off, but clients can expect to save an average of more than $30 for each round, freeing up funds to send disobedient 9-irons to boarding school. The majority of courses honor discounts on weekends and other peak-rate times, and most will allow clients to play multiple rounds at the discounted rate. Clubbers who sink an eagle, hole-in-one, or encroaching pirate ship while redeeming a discount can also qualify for prizes by mailing in a signed copy of their scorecard or middle-school math test.
