The secret to a professional golf swing lies in the ability to maintain a steady stance without being distracted by an opponent's hypnotic plaid pants. Keep up appearances with today's Groupon: for $49, you get unlimited golf in June, July, and August (a $175 value) and 12 small buckets of range balls (a $45 value) at Shalimar Country Club in Tempe (a $220 total value).
Shalimar Country Club hosts nine holes stretching nearly 2,500 yards of verdant greens and fairways accessible to putters of all levels, as well as relaxed practice facilities. Wipe the dimples off golf balls' smug faces with a spell on the driving range, smacking up to 12 sessions' worth of self-satisfied orbs. After warming up, customers can traverse the arboreal fairways of the cleverly designed, challenging main course. Clubbers can strut like 9-iron royalty through par 3s and 4s mottled with bunkers and ponds before they strategically plant tees and affix designer snorkel masks to gauge the ninth hole's tricky island green.
Shalimar Golf Club
Shalimar Golf Club's 2,417 yards of manicured golfing terrain are peppered with towering trees, slinking sand traps, and rolling hills. The design of the nine-hole, par-33 course masterfully incorporates its scenic assets—the fifth hole sits across a yawning lake, and the ninth hole's island green is flanked on all sides by water hazards, bunkers, and punks who steal golf balls for their solar-system dioramas. To be prepared to dodge these obstacles, players practice on a driving range and chipping-and-putting green. After their rounds, golfers can wander into the restaurant and lounge for a meal or a drink or peruse the golf shop to try on new apparel and test the mettle of name-brand equipment.
