The Scots developed golf to irk common loch pests, such as merats, locharoaches, and Nessie, who to this day rarely surfaces for fear of being beamed in the head by a well-aimed ball. Brush up your monster-vexing skills with today's deal: for $22, you get to play 18 holes of golf with the aid of a rental cart (a $57.25 total value) from Ratcliffe Golf Services. Choose to play at one of three locations: Renaissance Park Golf Course, Charles T. Myers Golf Course, and Sunset Hills Golf Course.
Whether golf finds you unsteady in your ill-fitting plus fours, or you're a seasoned veteran capable of nonchalant holes-in-zero, Ratcliffe's courses provide ability-appropriate challenges. The Charles T. Myers course is especially ideal for the inexperienced, but capable of providing challenges if you go in a mixed-level group. Sunset Hills offers a similarly nuanced but non-intimidating experience. Renaissance Park makes an especially verdant selection, featuring a professionally designed landscape stuffed to the brim with flora, expansive bentgrass greens, and rich clusters of foliage. With a rental cart shuttling you from hole to hole, you'll keep your legs fresh enough to compete in a youth soccer game after playing 18 holes.
Golf with friends is the best kind of bonding. There's nothing like being out in the open air, hearing the wind blow through the beautiful old trees lining the well-groomed fairways, and refusing to grant your compadres mulligans. The satisfaction of a well-played hole is amplified by the enjoyment you get from your partner's three-shot spectacle in the woodsy rough. Charlotte contains a bevy of public golf courses, but Ratcliffe manages some of the best. With immaculately maintained greens, bunkers free from sandworm infestations, and absolutely no cartoon gophers living in the holes, its courses present lovely platforms for experienced and neophyte golfers alike.
