Golfing, like painting a portrait of greed, involves controlled strokes and unfriendly greens. Club away on a canvas with today's Groupon: for $15, you get nine holes of golf for two people at The Oaks course at The Oaks Golf Club in Leavenworth (a $30 value).
The new owners of The Oaks Golf Club renovated the nine-hole Oaks course by expanding greens and adding dimension, resulting in 2,573 rolling yards with elevation variations as high as 50 feet. Take to the par 35 course with a fellow divot devotee and launch dimpled orbs through the air in spirited re-creations of the Apollo 12 moon landing. Each green on the course is now an average of 5,000 square feet in size, with recently built mounding around the holes adding nuance and difficulty to each putt and slice. A recently installed irrigation system helps playing surfaces stay fresh for birdies and impromptu company picnics.
