What You'll Get
Who said golf was a rich man's game? We didn't. It was a filthy, lying cyber-bully. You know which one we're talking about, the one with perfectly quaffed hair, a button-less future shirt, and a smug grin taunting you—almost daring you—to challenge him to an enunciation contest (he has never lost). But don't be intimidated by the way his eyes twinkle under the Canadian moonlight or how he stands on water as if he were Moses, he's incredibly self-conscious of his inability to inflect.
For $95, you can play 36 holes of golf on a championship-caliber course at Ruffled Feathers Golf Club. That's half off the normal $190 price (greens fees are $95 before 1 p.m.). Share your Groupon with a friend so you can play a round together, or buy two and hit the links in a foursome.
Ruffled Feathers is the only golf course in Chicagoland designed by famous course architects Pete and P.B. Dye; if you're an avid fan of father-son-designed golf courses, it's a must see. Located just 30 minutes from downtown Chicago at 1 Pete Dye Dr. in Lemont, Ruffled Feathers is a demanding 6,878-yard, par-72 course with strategically placed bunkers, undulating greens, and sculpted fairways. The course's slope rating is 134 on bent grass, so just imagine the challenge when the grass is upright. Click here for a short description of nine holes or check out a few photos here.
This is a great chance for golf enthusiasts to play a public course that feels like a private club because it's surrounded by lovely homes, has a fancy clubhouse, and is enclosed by a 40-foot defensive wall. Get today's Groupon and head out to Lemont to play on a course the Dyes would call "something we built."
