What You'll Get
The dimples on a golf ball help it fly farther with greater accuracy, just as the dimples on a baby help it steal candy from gullible strangers. Find your adorably sporty sweet spots with today's Groupon: for $35, you get a round of golf for two with cart rental at the Roland Barkau Memorial Golf Course located in Okawville, IL (up to a $70 value).
Roland Barkau Memorial Golf Course offers golfers of all skill levels swing-testing challenges in the form of 18 championship-style holes. The par 71 course dons 6,513 yards of zoysia fairways, fescue roughs, bent-grass greens, and cart-powered course traversing. As different as day- and night-sun tanning, the first nine holes adventurously take golfers through tiger-free woods while the back nine contest clubs with links-style layouts. Each hole offers four tee options, ideal for varying skill levels or four-armed mutant-phenoms.
Attached to the rolling landscape of the golf course is Kelley's Green, a full-service restaurant and Irish pub loaded with snacks and meals. The banquet facility can accommodate parties ranging from a couple of your closest golfing buddies to 200 golf-ball-peddling gophers.
Six GolfLink reviewers give Roland Barkau Memorial Golf Course an average of four stars:
- The front nine is a hidden gem. It snakes through the woods with nice elevation changes. – bigbomber266
