Golfing is a therapeutic activity, akin to running, knitting, or running from possessed knitting needles. Keep bodies agile with today's Groupon to Salt Creek Golf Retreat, located in Nashville. Choose between two options, valid Monday–Thursday only:
• For $54, you get 18 holes of golf for two plus a cart rental (a $69 value) and a $40 dining voucher to Brown County Steak & Seafood Company (a $109 total value).
• For $110, you get 18 holes of golf for two plus a cart rental (a $69 value), a one-night stay at the Overlook Lodge (an $89 value), and a $40 dining voucher to Brown County Steak & Seafood Company (a $198 total value).
Salt Creek Golf Retreat's spacious swath hosts 18 challenging golf holes with an overall par of 71. Mounted astride their GPS-equipped rolling steeds, heroes will zigzag across Salt Creek seven times as they chase the elusive dream of a perfect plaid outfit across 18 greens, zinging dimpled enemy spheres across sparkling lakes, past white sand bunkers, and—hopefully—into small dark holes. After besting a bevy of balls, retreat for a supper-club-style meal at the Brown County Steak & Seafood Company, where plates of Black & Blue rib eye ($22) drive away hunger via 10 ounces of Cajun-rubbed meat drizzled with blue-cheese crumbles. Or choose the decadent lobster ravioli ($15), featuring plump pasta pillows cloaked in a sauce of choice, to partake in a satisfying lobster meal without the use of nutcrackers or newly grown claw appendages.
Those looking to extending their stay on the greens may add on a one-night romp at the Overlook Lodge, a condominium-style hotel boasting course and state-park views. Guests can sidle into a one-bedroom unit after a full day of recreational excess, replete with a full-size living room, dining space, fireplace, and kitchen. In the morning, recline on a private patio or deck, contemplating the probability of a ball landing in your coffee cup from the adjacent fairways.
