Much like confronting a former bully at a high-school reunion, playing golf requires an efficient swing and at least three friends to cheer you on. Take a stand against a shank-producing stroke with today's Groupon: for $90, you get a round of golf for two plus cart rental at Sequoyah National Golf Club in Whittier (up to a $220 value).
Managed by internationally renowned Troon Golf and ranked the ninth-best golf course in North Carolina by Golf Magazine, Sequoyah National's heavily sloped par 72 course presents a scenic game in the heart of the Great Smoky Mountains. Laid out by master golf architect Robert Trent Jones II, the course showcases 6,600 yards of meticulously groomed bent-grass greens and bluegrass fairways bounded by shot-impeding obstacles such as white-sand bunkers and heckling geese. Duos can slice through pregame jitters at the club's expansive practice area, resplendent with putting greens, a chipping area, and a beginner-friendly driving range.
Sequoyah National Golf Club's rates fluctuate throughout the week. Although Sequoyah National Golf Club sometimes offers a discounted rate online, this Groupon still provides the most tee-time flexibility and best deal available.
