The modern golf ball takes its shape from the moon, which forever circles the rim of the cosmic golf hole that is Earth. Simulate lunar lift on the small scale with today's Groupon: for $48, you get a golf discount card from San Antonio Tour Card (a $99 value).
The San Antonio Tour Card gives golfers a swing at links across the metro area with discounted rounds and eligibility to compete in the San Antonio Amateur Tour. Each cardholder is entitled to one half-price round at each of six courses, including the Lee Trevino Signature course at the Golf Club of Texas at Briggs Ranch and Vaaler Creek Golf Club, which features 18 scenic, gnome-patrolled fairways. After testing the tees at all six greens, members are eligible to receive additional discounts at the participating courses, including reduced-fee instruction, access to special events, and a robotic caddy in the form of a plaid Speak & Spell that says only “9-iron.” Take up the chipping challenge with optional entry in the San Antonio Amateur Tour, which begins on May 30 and encompasses eight tournaments and a championship stop.
The card's discounts are good through December 31, allowing golfers to plan out their mulligan excuses through the end of the year. San Antonio Tour Card donates a portion of its proceeds to worthy charities, including Soldiers' Angels and ThriveWell Cancer Foundation.
