Golf obstacles parallel life challenges and reinforce conventional wisdom that the only way to escape rough patches is through excessive clubbing. Power through impediments with today’s Groupon: for $54, you get a golf outing for two at Shiloh Springs Golf Club in Platte City (up to a $108 total value). The package includes the following:
- One round of golf with a cart per person (up to a $90 value)
- Two small buckets of range balls to share (a $3 value each)
- Two lunches (a $6 value each), each including the following:
- One hot dog, Polish, or bratwurst
- One bag of chips
- One soda
At Shiloh Springs, club-toters can whack spheres across 6,000 yards of scenic, well-maintained greens. Throughout the course, blue and green tees suit beginner and intermediate golfers respectively, allowing budding sport enthusiasts to actually play rather than stay home and memorize U.S. Open commentary. Golfing pairs can take aim with two small buckets of range balls, which sail past the trees that dot the par 71 course faster than guinea pigs atop frisbees. After warming up, hungry athletes can dig into hot-dog lunches to find more putting power than a golf club glued to a jackhammer. An onsite pro shop facilitates leisurely postgame browsing by flaunting a collection of pull carts and golf balls.
Shiloh Springs Golf Club’s rates fluctuate throughout the year.
