The dimples on a golf ball help it fly farther with greater accuracy, just as the dimples on a baby help it steal candy from gullible strangers. Find your adorably sporty sweet spots with today's Groupon: for $37, you get 18 holes for two with a golf cart plus a $10 food-and-beverage credit at Oak Harbor Golf Club (up to a $74 value). Golfers can schedule tee times for Monday through Friday and after 2 p.m. on Saturdays, Sundays, and holidays.
Oak Harbor Golf Club swathes golfers in layers of natural splendor with its scenic, river-wrapped 18-hole golf course. The course challenges golfers with shots that have to made over the meandering Portage River, greens with little space for balls to play, and wind turbines on every fairway. After the round, weary golfspeople can retire to The 19th Hole restaurant and bar for post-game snacks, such as sweet-potato fries served with brown sugar and cinnamon ($2.25), a 1/3-pound black Angus burger ($3.50), and pulled-pork sandwich ($4), as well as a selection of alcoholic and nonalcoholic drinks.
Oak Harbor Golf Club's rates fluctuate through the week. Plan ahead to make sure you're redeeming your Groupon at the most opportune time.
Oak Harbor Golf Club
The Oak Harbor Golf Club's 6,493-yard course protrudes into an oxbow on the Portage River, pairing scenic views and cool breezes with an ever-present supply of water hazards and small greens. Along the front nine, players patrol tree-lined fairways dotted by small ponds and bisected by a marshy brook that requires calculated drives and sharp wit to solve riddles proposed by retired caddies turned bridge trolls. The back nine meanders out onto a narrow neck of land within the oxbow and wraps golfers in panoramic views of the river.
Off the course, golfers can bogey-proof their swings with a practice session at the grass-tee driving range or a lesson with PGA–certified instructor Matthew Jennings & Chuck Benes. After a day filled with aggressive drives, players can relax at The Village Grill and Patio, which serves a menu of sandwiches, wraps, and salads most enjoyed when eaten with polished divot tools.
