What You'll Get
Few things in life are as pleasurable as a scenic stroll through meticulously maintained terrain while hitting things really hard with a high-tech stick. Revel in these simple pleasures with today’s Groupon. For $45, you get a round of golf and a cart rental for two people (up to a $90 value) at Ravenwood Country Club, located in Hermitage. Customers may purchase two Groupons in order to play as a foursome.
Boasting a rich history, Ravenwood Country Club originally acquired 75 acres of its current location in the early 19th century during the Golf Rush. Today, golfers can enjoy a 214-acre locale overlooking the Stones River that features an 18-hole, par-72 course of lush fairways and prim greens, with the Championship tees clocking in at 6,264 total yards. The front nine holes are fairly open with modest elevation changes, while the back nine present contoured greens and steeper elevation changes. The course also features water hazards on seven holes and an 18th hole that teleports to a new location at sunrise every day. A golf cart is included, ensuring a leisurely loop that avoids excessive exposure to the sun while providing a means of escape from roving bands of cart-driving marauders seeking precious balls of golf. Visitors may also take advantage of a putting green, driving range ($5 a bucket), Pro Shop, and full-service dining at the Pro Shop Grill to enhance their golfing experience.
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 compadres mulligans. At Ravenwood Country Club, the satisfaction of a well-played birdie is amplified by the sheer schadenfreude one gets from a partner's three-stroke spectacle in the woodsy rough. Call ahead to schedule your tee time, or book it online using Ravenwood's new online tee-time booking system.

About Ravenwood Country Club
Sporting two distinct nine-hole layouts built more than 20 years apart, Ravenwood Country Club's 18-hole golf course boasts 6,264 yards of splendid fairways running alongside the stately grounds' cerulean ponds and misting fountains. The lengthier of the two, the front nine eases rusty swings and slow-to-wake irons into the round with a relatively open, gently undulating layout before clubbers must contend with the dramatic elevation changes, larger greens, and omnipresent water hazards that await in the course's second act. Before duffers return through the majestic double doors of the clubhouse, they must traverse the climactic 18th hole, a 385-yard par 4 with a stream stationed squarely in the landing zone of aggressive drives and local spacecraft.
Along with its picturesque par 72, Ravenwood Country Club encompasses a recently refurbished outdoor swimming pool and eight tennis courts flanked by covered spectator areas. Guests weary from days looping the course, lapping the pool, or combing the tennis courts for edible neon fuzz can retire to the club's dining facilities, which host everything from quiet dinner dates to lavish events and celebrations.
