The Scots developed golf to irk common loch pests, such as merats, locharoaches, and Nessie, who to this day rarely surfaces for fear of being beaned by a well-aimed ball. Admire the monster-vexing skills of professional golfers with today's Groupon: for $45, you get two weekender tickets for February 19-20 (a $90 value) to the PGA TOUR's Northern Trust Open in Pacific Palisades.
The Northern Trust Open, the fourth-oldest event on the PGA TOUR outside of the major championships, has showcased the talent of professional golfers on one of the world’s most distinguished courses. So far, 19 of the top 30 players on the PGA TOUR have committed to the tournament. Watch as they gingerly insert a dimpled egg into 18 small holes speckled throughout the vast, obstacle-strewn acreage at the illustrious Riviera Country Club. The revered par 4, 475-yard 18th hole challenges linksmen from the tee box, requiring a blind shot that must climb a hill to reach the fairway. From there, golfers must strike their shot solidly to reach the green, which is encircled by a family of wild boars.
Youth 18 and under are admitted free with a properly ticketed adult.
- It was a really amazing experience, you get so close to the players and the action, it gives you a one-of-a-kind experience that you don't really get in any other sporting event. I highly recommend attending this tournament. – uscholar2005, Ticketmaster
- I really liked the Northern Trust Open...I was right up close to the golfers. Seeing professional golfers in action is inspiring. There is nothing like seeing live sports action. — Golfer90, Ticketmaster
