Golfing requires patience, like watching a child read an entire dictionary to herself or digging a tunnel using fresh loaves of bread for shovels. Discover the necessary restraint with today's Groupon: for $35, you and a partner get an 18-hole round of golf, including a cart rental and two small buckets of range balls at Quail Creek Golf Club in San Marcos (up to a $79 value).
Quail Creek stretches across a historic stretch of pristine lakes, fairways, and bunkers. The par 72 course, which was only recently opened to the public, ensures a challenge for dedicated drivers, skillful short gamers, and weekend warriors. The course's signature seventh hole, a par 4 at 312 yards, requires a tee shot over a canyon and a children's birthday party littered with multiple moonbounces. After conquering the course, or politely allowing the course to conquer you, retreat to the club's Back Porch Bar & Bistro, where pours of lemony teas accompany leather couches and three flat-screen HD televisions. Please make your reservation at least 48 hours in advance.
Quail Creek Golf Club
Quail Creek Golf Club’s 18-hole course invites golfers to enjoy the countryside charm of its rolling terrain as they swing their way past native tall grasses. A well-oiled short game pays dividends on this course due to the nature of the turtle back greens. The signature seventh hole offers a view of a large canyon that sits adjacent to the Blanco River, and the twelfth hole runs alongside the river itself. The same oblong pond stands in front of the greens at the adjacent ninth and 18th holes, providing a dramatic finish to both nines, as well as an opportunity for golfers to sacrifice their sand wedges to the water in a post-round gesture of respect for the course. The grounds include a driving range, and a Back Porch Bar & Grill where players can enjoy a frosty beverage, beer or burger, which can be ordered in advance so it is ready on the turn.
After rounds, players can drop by the Back Porch Bar & Bistro for a frosty beverage, beer or burger, which can be ordered in advance so it is ready on the turn.
