A golf course is a scenic sanctuary where young blades of grass receive constant grooming and grizzled grains of sand can retire far away from merciless ocean waves. Explore a relaxing landscape with today's Groupon: for $30, you get 18 holes of golf and a cart for two at Saddle Creek Golf Club in Lewisburg (up to an $86 value).
A signature Gene Bates–designed course, the Saddle Creek Golf Club course is nestled between thick forest and sprawling fields, with verdant fairways peppered with ponds and a winding, stone-lined creek that cleaves multiple holes. Golfers drive and chip through distinctly different front and back nines, with the course's first half demanding accurate tee shots while the tail end tests skills with an array of hazards and curiously sinking flagsticks. The course shifts from tree-lined fairways to a links-style feel on the 10th hole, a par 4 that dares players to weave approach shots across a creek and between a pond and sasquatch's beach residence, which doubles as an arduous sand trap. The par 72 course stretches up to 6,708 yards around doglegs and over fast-playing bent-grass greens while remaining playable for golfers of all abilities, with four tee boxes on each hole. Though not included in today's Groupon, The Nineteenth Hole restaurant welcomes golfers after each round, with casual dining and drinks on a sun-bathed outdoor patio or a spacious dining room aglow with the radiance of dual big-screen TVs and an LCD projector.
Saddle Creek Golf Club
A signature Gene Bates–designed course, Saddle Creek Golf Club's 18-hole layout alternates between dense woodlands and open fields, all brought together by a winding, stone-lined creek that babbles across multiple holes. Encroaching trees, lakes, and angry linebackers loom throughout the front nine, where accurate tee shots must bisect unforgiving fairways. The course's second act takes golfers out of dense tree lines and into an open, links-style layout, where players must conquer deep bunkers, intervening waterways, and unfavorable lies wrought by mounded, Scottish-style terrain. Rounds end with dramatic flair at the 18th hole, where a two-tiered green tests how well players have adjusted to the slick, bentgrass putting surfaces and triangular holes that dot the entire course.
The club's Nineteenth Hole overlooks the emerald expanse, allowing golfers to relive glorious moments over frothy beverages, savory meals from the grill, or mouthwatering sports broadcasts by Brent Musburger on the diner's dual big-screen TVs and LCD projector.
