Before the Iron Age, primitive golfers would propel balls across ancient fairways using a method known today as "throwing." Celebrate the advent of game-changing clubs with today’s Groupon: for $12, you get a round of golf and a cart rental at National Road Golf Course in West Jefferson (up to a $30.50 value).
The 18-hole National Road Golf Course delights clubbers of all skill levels with finely manicured fairways and sylvan surroundings. Fearless wedge wielders tour the verdant par 71 course (up to a $19.50 value) in pursuit of birdies, eagles, and the ball-stealing gryphon that deftly runs interference on every swing. A trusty motorized steed chauffeurs players across 5,312 yards of links (an $11 value), bearing the burden of heavy bags to both conserve golfers’ energy for upcoming power swings, and to leave their upper torsos unencumbered for celebratory team-wide chest bumps.
National Road Golf Course
Rye grass fairways give way to slick, bent-grass greens to form a par-71 layout at National Road Golf Course that has challenged the birdie-hunting mettle of golfers since 1995. Designed by Ed Tonti, the course plays to 5,312 yards from the tips, ample distance to have golfers reaching for their driver or strapping their golf ball to rockets on certain holes. Before rounds, players can warm up their swings at the driving range and a putting green, both near a snack bar that dishes out food and refreshments to fuel long days on the course. National Road Golf Course also has an indoor simulated course for golfers to practice at during the off-season.
