What You'll Get
Long ago, Scottish polo players longed for a game where they could explore scenic terrain, ride an obedient mechanical horse, and wear more courageously plaid knickers. Marvel in their subsequent invention—as well as luxury resort lodging, theater, and comedy—with today's Groupon at Pheasant Run Resort in St. Charles. Choose from the following options:
$79 for a one-night stay in a Golf or Courtyard guest room with two queen-sized beds or one king-sized bed (up to a $149 value). Each room includes views of the Pheasant Run golf course and pond, as well as access to all three of the resort's pools.
$29 for an 18-hole round of golf with cart rental (up to a $75 value) at The Resort Course, one of two championship courses at Pheasant Run. The par-72 course boasts 6,500 yards of manicured greens and fairways with a politely clapping audience of matured maple trees and various florae lining the fairways. Choose any tee time and quickly rescue errantly sliced balls with the smooth cruising speed of a golf cart. This course will challenge golfers of any skill level, be they newbie clubbers or full-time swingers who consistently reach the green in three strokes using only their mind. Call ahead to schedule a tee time.
$19 for one theater ticket to a variety of upcoming shows at The Mainstage Theater (up to a $39 value). Coming soon is Red Herring, a comedy set in 1952 that intertwines three love stories, a murder mystery, and nuclear espionage, much like the autobiography of the San Diego Chicken. After undergoing a $4.5 million renovation, the theater now welcomes up to 320 guests for high-quality performances backed by state-of-the-art sound and lighting.
$10 for one ticket to Zanies Comedy Club (a $23 value). Check out the upcoming calendar to see what future funnypersons are scheduled to perform. There is a two-drink minimum purchase per person inside the club (alcoholic or non), and you must be 21+ to enter, with a valid photo ID.
Pheasant Run Resort bills itself as the Midwest's largest entertainment resort, sprawling across 250 acres in St. Charles, about 35 miles west of Chicago. Though not included with this Groupon, guests and visitors can also enjoy a plethora of resort activities such as the Mario Tricoci Hair Salon & Day Spa, three heated swimming pools—including the historic indoor-outdoor pool—filled with clean cloud sweat, abundant dining and nightlife, and plenty of local attractions. Whether you stay at Pheasant Run Resort for only a few hours or the whole night, it will provide a refreshing getaway from the noise of your neighborhood's backyard re-creation of the Battle of Stalingrad.
Taxes and resort fee are not included with the guest room, and rooms are not available on holiday weekends. The theater and comedy club deals are not valid for special events or one-night-only performances.

- I just stayed at Pheasant Run Resort with my husband. It was wonderful! We had not been to the hotel in years- WHAT A CHANGE! Our stay was very enjoyable. Everyone was friendly and seemed to really care about our experience at the resort. I felt like I had been transported into a paradise. – northern0113, Citysearch
- We were there primarily to golf and thoroughly enjoyed the course – it was well groomed and staff were as helpful as you could want, and we had a great time playing. – chicago_emf, TripAdvisor
