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 $34, you get 18 holes of golf, cart rental, and a medium driving-range bucket at the Palm Valley golf course at Golf Summerlin, located on Del Webb Boulevard (up to a $99 value).
The Palm Valley golf course enchants clubbers with grandiose greenery and hypnotizing, mountainous vistas. Eighteen holes dot meticulously manicured fairways over a sprawling distance of 6,849 yards, and par 4 holes ensure golfers ample opportunities to try out an arsenal of swing techniques and moving interpretive victory dances. The course was designed by hall-of-famer swing jockey Billy Casper and course designer Greg Nash to challenge ball launchers at every level with a slope rating of 71.6/123. A dress code requires that golfers arrive in style by spurning tank tops, cutoffs, metal spikes, and water wings.

Eagle Crest Golf Club
Designed by World Golf Hall of Famer Billy Casper and course-planning guru Greg Nash, Eagle Crest Golf Club's 18-hole, 4,067-yard executive course offers scenic city views from some of Las Vegas's highest points. The par 60 layout fluctuates in elevation as it cozies up to an amber mountainside, demanding confident club selection and a passing capacity for Bavarian yodeling. Throughout the round, 12 par 3s reward pin-high iron shots, while 4 par 4s allow players to unleash aggression with flush drives. Rounds conclude at the straightaway, 370-yard, par 4 18th hole, where the fairway plummets 40 feet into a large, bunker-fortified green that lets you punch it if it flinches in anticipation of a craterous ball mark.
