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 to the Minneapolis Parks and Recreation Board. You must redeem your Groupon at Columbia Golf Club, but you do not necessarily have to play there first. Choose between the following options:

  • For $117, you get one 18-hole round of golf with cart rental at each of five Minneapolis Parks 18-hole championship golf courses (up to a $235 value) plus 20% off any purchase at the Columbia Golf Club pro shop on the day of redemption.
  • For $22, you get a 20 tokens, each good for a bucket of 20 balls, at the Columbia Driving Range (a $45 value).

With almost a century’s worth of history, the Minneapolis Parks and Recreation Board's 18-hole courses invigorate golfers with lush scenery and challenging fairway play. The downtown skyline arcs gracefully over the 95-year-old Wirth Golf Club, which tests swinging skills with a tricky back nine, man-made lagoons, and schools of club-snatching kelpies. The regulation-size par 73 links at Hiawatha Golf Club border a scenic lake and its pond-studded grounds have hosted numerous heart-pumping tournaments. Swingers enjoy the walkable layout of the Gross National Golf Club and dreamily divot-repair through the wildflower-accented Meadowbrook Golf Club. Test irons' steely nerves on the Columbia Golf Club’s demanding tree-lined fairways, rolling from tee to tee in an included cart. Purchasers may end the day by applying a 20% discount to goods at the pro shop, proffering replacements for thrown wedges and replenishing tees accidentally used as toothpicks.

Those springing for the second option take to the state-of-the-art Columbia Driving Range to upgrade practice shots. Judge distance on target greens, polish a rusty short game in the pitching areas, or read greens for larger thematic meanings in the putting area. 20 tokens supply projectile-seeking clubs with around 400 balls total and don't expire, enough to turn ranges into a monochromatic pointillist portrait of Greg Norman.
