What You'll Get
Though golf's origins trace back to the meadows of Scotland, few players maintain the original method of launching one's ball from a self-destructing bagpipe. Practice more accurate propulsion techniques with today's Groupon: for $99, you get a round of golf for four players, two cart rentals (up to a $189.84 value including HST), and two large buckets of balls (a $15.28 value including HST) at Sand Hills Golf Resort in Thedford (up to a $205.12 total value, including HST).
Sand Hills charts a rolling par 71 course suitable for wedge wielders of all abilities, with modest fairway lengths, challenging bunkers, and seven interconnected ponds that add beauty and difficulty to putt-filled play. Argyle-clad shoulders warm up their oscillatory abilities while lobbing dimpled orbs around the practice facility, which includes a driving range, putting and chipping greens, and a practice bunker that recently retired after an exhausting career in a pre-school playground. Flagstick-conquering foursomes chase birdies and eagles across Sand Hills’ verdant two-tiered greens, whose subtle landscape undulations make mulligans moot. Hasten interhole travel times with a pair of two-person carts that double as holders for heavy bags filled with woods, irons, and lead statues of Arnold Palmer. After a day on the links, players can retire to the sprawling Old West–style clubhouse for discussion of the latest trends in tee-shaped tattoos.

About Sand Hills Golf Resort
Sand Hills Golf Resort's 18-hole course rises and falls over 5,536 yards of undulating terrain. Though modest in length, the course tempers aggressive play with seven interconnected ponds that balls must avoid or perform a splash-free dive that will earn them their freedom. After each drive and approach, golfers must contend with Sand Hills' deceptive greens, where undulations yield very few straightforward gimmes.
