What You'll Get
Since great aunts cannot resist pinching dimpled cheeks, the overwhelming number of dimples on a golf ball should confuse their grabby hands—defeating them once and for all. Drive dimpled dandies back into their holes with today's Groupon: for $10, you get 9 holes of golf for two plus tees and pull carts at Pine Lake Golf & Tennis Club, located on South 84th Street (up to a $21 value).
Opened to the public in 1971, Pine Lake Golf & Tennis Club hosts a relaxing 9-hole, par 3 course that’s comfortable enough for prospective putters but rife with challenges for seasoned veterans. Scrupulously maintained greens of lush grass connect holes ranging from 100 to 185 yards in length, providing ample opportunities for aspiring Jack Nicklauses to work on their short game.
Additionally, Pine Lake’s lack of sand bunkers or water hazards allows novice players to get their feet wet without getting their feet wet. In order to lighten your load of 9 irons and putters, Pine Lake will grant a pull cart to each player, as well as complimentary tees to spare golfers the effort of balancing balls on the ends of friends' noses.

About Pine Lake Golf & Tennis Club
The nine-hole executive course at Pine Lake Golf & Tennis Club—designed more than four decades ago for the use of homeowners in the Pine Lake housing area—today welcomes golfers of all skill levels and domicile locations. Beginners tackle the course’s straightforward fairways and greens, whereas skilled golfers can hone their short game on holes ranging in length from the 111-yard seventh to the 185-yard fifth. Although the concise fairways demand precision, they don’t foil golfers with the obstacles of other courses, such as sand traps, water hazards, and riddle-slinging bridge trolls. After swinging through a round under the gaze of the Pine Lake water tower, players can head to the tennis courts or drop by the pro shop to pick up new tees for staking pesky pint-sized vampires.
