Much like confronting a former bully at a high-school reunion, playing golf requires an efficient swing and at least three friends to cheer you on. Take a stand against a shank-producing stroke with today's Groupon: for $45, you get two green fees (up to a $60 value), a power-cart rental (up to a $25 value), and a $10 voucher to use for clubhouse fare and drinks at the River Hills Golf and Country Club in Clyde River. This Groupon expires July 15.
River Hills Golf and Country Club sprawls 18 holes over a tree-lined course that played picturesque host to the 2010 Nova Scotia Men's Amateur Golf Championship. Club-sluggers of all ability levels emancipate winged balls into high-flying bliss with three sets of tees on each hole. Slap shots across scenic surroundings, including wooded hills on the banks of the Clyde River and 1.5 km of stonewall, following balls' every meander in a power cart for two. After an appetite-inveigling day at the links, players can chow down on a cheeseburger ($3.85) or a two-piece fish 'n' chips dish ($9.50), and sip a glass of wine ($3.95) while gazing at other golfers' entanglements with heckling bunkers.
Though River Hills Golf and Country Club sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
River Hills Golf & Country Club
River Hills Golf & Country Club's 18-hole course hems the shores of the Clyde River, stretching across 6,389 yards of tree-lined fairways that played host to the 2010 Nova Scotia Men's Amateur Golf Championship. Breezes drift from the Shelburne waterfront, rustling the leaves of the course's dense tree lines and masking the romantic sonnets golfers whisper to their putters. A stately stone wall runs alongside much of the course, and water hazards loom on the edges of six holes, heightening difficulty as golfers journey on in their quest for par. Stationed in a renovated farmhouse that predates the course itself, the clubhouse invites golfers to enjoy a post-round nosh or stare down rival flagsticks from the patio deck, which overlooks six holes.
