Tasked with limited time and as many as 18 targets, golfers must balance skill and speed as they plug up each hole to prevent the escape of club soda from the earth's core. Preserve precious natural resources with today’s Groupon: for $79, you get a round of golf for two with cart at Northern Dunes Golf Club in Hepworth (up to a $166.11 value, including HST).
Northern Dunes’ front nine holes follow the curves of natural sand dunes in the manner of an original Scottish links course. Casual and avid golfing duos tangle with a par 72, 18-hole course (up to a $55 value per player), exchanging ball banter with trees, fescue, water hazards, and bunkers filled with natural sand in short par 3s and wordy par 4s. Pairs drive between fairways in an included power cart (an $18.50 value per player), navigating the greens' lulls, rises, and ghosts of squirrels past with GolfLogix GPS. The clubhouse nestles its rustic walls between the front and back nine, welcoming hungered putters to the 70-seat Dunes Bar and Grill. The pub proffers breakfast, lunch, and dinner as well as a list spanning wine, beer, and mixed drinks. Club-less golfers may rent a set for an additional $12.50 fee.
Northern Dunes’ rates fluctuate throughout the day and season; plan ahead to make sure you’re redeeming your Groupon at the most opportune time.
