With designated discounts, golf-related expenses vanish into thin air, much like boiled water, candle smoke, and lousy report cards. Throw egregious expenditures to the wind with today's Groupon: for $29, you get a golf coupon book from Mulligan Golf Marketing (a $69.99 value).
Mulligan Golf Marketing presents tee devotees with outings, golf discounts, and greens-centric events. The 2011 Mulligan Trail Card, a golf coupon book, cuts costs at more than 27 Chicago-area courses, including White Pines, Silver Lake, Ruffled Feathers, Tamarack, George Dunne National, Cranes Landing, and more. With the coupons, club-wielders can play more than 50 rounds of discounted golf, enough to occupy every weekend until your uncle buys his house boat. Discounted green fees come with the coupon collection, making cheap dates out of courses such as Lincoln Oaks Golf Course, Deerpath Golf Course, and The Resort Course at Pheasant Run. As a bonus discount, Groupon customers get $12 off per round at Prairie Landing, valid four times. Play in style with a free men's haircut at SportClips, equipping glamorous golfers with de rigueur tee-shaped Mohawks.
