Like the seedpod of the sacred lotus, golf courses are filled with holes and cause feelings of euphoria when chewed. Ingest an outing of sporting fun with today's Groupon: for $74, you get a round of golf for two, golf-cart rental, and two buckets of balls at Pajaro Valley Golf Club in Royal Oaks (up to a $154 value).
Pajaro Valley’s meticulously crafted landscape provides pin seekers with a picturesque playground in which to launch their dimpled golf pellets toward beautifully maintained greens. During a round that tours 18 verdant, championship-level holes (up to a $55 value per person), club-wielding duos will cover more than 6,000 yards of mulligan-rich territory carpeted by rye grass.
Before setting out on their 18-hole ballventures, golfers can prepare by honing precision putting touches on practice greens, smashing practice drives on the grass-tee driving range, and delivering rousing pep talks to skittish pitching wedges.
Pajaro Valley Golf Club
Pristine fairways gently rise and fall across 6,664 yards of undulating terrain at Pajaro Valley Golf Club's 18-hole course. Located a mere Goliath's drive from the Pacific Ocean, golfers can smell the crisp sea air and hear the hushed whispers of heist-planning pelicans throughout the picturesque par 72, once the verdant kingdom of 1930s golf legend Olin Dutra. The club’s E-Z-Go golf carts ferry about the arsenal of woods and irons needed to triumph over the transition from shorter par 3s and 4s to the lengthy fairways at the 1st, 4th, 15th, and 17th holes, all par 5.
After looping the horticultural haven, golfers can retreat to the club's full-service restaurant, where frothy beers and hamburgers refuel weary bodies and famished 9-irons. Spiky-shoed journeymen can place their order ahead of time at the 9th or 18th tees, ensuring their meal will be ready for them at the turn or shortly after the round.
