The dimples on a golf ball help it fly farther with greater accuracy, just as the dimples on a baby help it steal candy from gullible strangers. Find your adorably sporty sweet spots with today's Groupon: for $49, you get two 18-hole games of golf and a cart rental at Sherwood Golf & Country Club in Sherwood Park (up to a $108 value).
Sherwood Golf tees up a picturesque nine-hole championship course to challenge golfers of all handicaps. Birdies soar over holes up to 571 yards long, spotted with hidden water hazards, bent-grass greens, white-silica sand bunkers, and ball-boosting airstreams. Rented golf carts meander down paved paths while their riders absorb a sweeping view of downtown Edmonton. Club sluggers can also purchase an additional Groupon as a gift to impress a foursome of challengers with a matching set of argyle socks and clubs.
Sherwood Golf & Country Club
With the Edmonton skyline stretched across the horizon, players scurry past tall pine trees and stone retaining walls as they conquer the nine-hole course at Sherwood Golf & Country Club. The 3,136-yard layout combines challenge and charm with a creek that intertwines throughout the course and a waterfall that sends water crashing earthward, creating a prime opportunity for a between-holes shower. Players that manage to keep their shots dry may not be out of trouble, as glimmering white silica-sand bunkers stand as stoic beaches around slick bentgrass greens. The par 36 design ends with back-to-back par 5s, the last measuring just 473 yards, giving golfers a chance to end their round with a birdie or golf-cart barrel roll before heading in to have a beer at the clubhouse.
