What You'll Get
Like trying to squeeze into a Speedo, golf feels more comfortable in a large area when nobody is watching. Putt without the pressure with today's Groupon: for $189, you get 10 rounds of golf, 10 buckets of range balls, and 10 lesson clinics at Olde Sycamore Golf Plantation in Mint Hill (up to a $1,260 value).
Tucked away among tranquil North Carolina pines, Olde Sycamore Golf Plantation inspires and challenges golfers of all levels with its rolling hills and fetching fairways. Par-seeking patrons cruise the luscious bent-grass grounds in a stylish cart (a required $23, not included in price of Groupon) for 10 birdie-filled games of golf (up to a $690 value), putting and generously slicing their way through the 18-hole, par 72 course. Playing 7,000 yards from the back tees, Olde Sycamore provides ample opportunities to unsheathe the driver and sail a sphere down the fairway or into the elf-infested woods. Strategically placed bunkers and water hazards test mental strength on approach shots, making strategy and precision essential to beating back bogeys.
Players who want to warm up before a round or practice their swinging strut are welcome to make use of their 10 buckets of range balls (a $100 value) on the practice range, featuring a chipping green with a bunker, a practice putting green, and a full Bermuda-grass hitting area. Drop by Friday afternoons and Saturday mornings February through November to capitalize on the club's one-hour lesson clinics (a $470 value), lead by head golf pro Barry Wilkins and Olde Sycamore's PGA and LPGA pro team. Each clinic is limited to 10 golfers to ensure individual attention and personalized instruction, as well as even teams for postlesson crochet tournaments.
