It's been said that the game of golf is 90% mental, with the other 10% split equally between technique, physical strength, and telekinetic iron-bending capacity. Show off your multifaceted golf game with today's Groupon to Shorewood Golf Course. Choose between the following options:
- For $30, you get an 18-hole golf outing for two, including cart rental and rental clubs if necessary (up to a $130 value).
- For $40, you get nine holes of golf, lunch, and rental clubs if necessary for four (up to a $140 value).
Shorewood Golf Course's nine-hole, 2,792-yard course takes golfers meandering across kempt fairways sculpted along the numerous, short trees of a savannah woodland. Purchase today's first option and enlist a fellow club-wielding cadet to loop this short but challenging course twice in a row for a full 18-hole experience (a $48 value), assisted by an obedient golf cart (a $30 value) and optional rental clubs (a $52 value). A second jaunt through the course gives duffers an opportunity to conquer the testy tree lines, meddling bunkers, small greens, and demonic sprinkler heads that inflated scores and inspired teary-eyed fore putts the first time through.
Sate appetites for golf and grub with today's second option, which nets a foursome the opportunity to play a nine (a $60 value) and then grab lunch at the Shorewood Golf Course’s restaurant (up to a $28 value). Snack on sandwiches such as the roast beef and red-pepper-sauced Phoenix ($4.25), or divvy up a 12-inch pepperoni and sausage pizza ($8.25). This option also includes rental clubs (a $52 value), a necessary item ever since the game officially banned the use of popular surrogates such as medieval weaponry and soap on a rope.
Shorewood Golf Course
Tucked along the east side of the bay, Shorewood Golf Course’s 2,792-yard, nine-hole layout challenges club-swingers with unforgiving fairways and small, breaking greens whose impressive upkeep earned the course an appearance and maintenance award in 2009. Since the first post-putt strut in 1931, the course’s oak- and hickory-lined fairways have invited players to overcome undulating terrain both scenic and demanding. The zenith of these hilly hazards is found on the 492-yard par 5 fourth hole, where golfers must overcome a dogleg right off the tee before hitting multiple shots to the green located at the end of a narrow fairway that encourages conga lines along its gradual incline. After a day out in the sun, golfers can adjourn to the course’s restaurant to munch on pizza and sandwiches or enjoy a frosty beverage.
