Golf was originally played with cantaloupes, until golfers complained of their underwhelming trajectories and tendency to attract fruit-loving wombats. Observe the flight paths of a more suitable sphere with today's Groupon: for $20, you get four tickets to the Mississippi Gulf Resort Classic (a $60 value) at Fallen Oak Golf Club in Saucier, held March 30–April 3, 2011. The Mississippi Gulf Resort Classic is a PGA Champions stroke-play tournament featuring 78 professional golfers competing without a cut over 54 holes. Practice your golf clap or putt stomp from the peanut gallery as Hall of Fame golfers including Tom Kite, Hale Irwin, and Bernhard Langer tee off on Fallen Oak's pecan and magnolia grove-ensconced, 7,487-yard championship golf course. Tickets are good for any one-day entry onto the tournament grounds. The tournament is closely associated with Habitat for Humanity of the Mississippi Gulf Coast, which was named the 2010 Champions Tour Charity of the Year.
Although Mississippi Gulf Resort Classic features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
