Long ago, Scottish polo players longed for a game where they could explore scenic terrain, ride an obedient mechanical horse, and wear more courageously plaid knickers. Marvel in their subsequent invention with today's Groupon: for $148, you get 10 green fees and nine lesson clinics (a $1,210 value) at Sienna Plantation Golf Club in Missouri City.
Sienna Plantation Golf Club is a semi-private golf course where avid clubsmen can practice their swings while surrounded by lovely golfing scenery. With today's deal, players can drop by the pro shop to exchange their Groupon for a card worth ten games (a $490 value). The course's 18 gently sloping greens, whose snaky twisting streams and disarmingly picturesque copses of native trees often tempt wayward balls from their straight and narrow flights. To avoid this fate, customers can attend nine lesson clinics (a $720 value) to hone vital golf skills such as putting, chipping, and selecting clashing plaids under the tutelage of a professional golfer. After a game, feast away the memory of misdirected putts at the clubhouse's full-service restaurant, or take a cart on a riotous slo-mo joyride doomed to end when security catches up to you on fast-mo foot.
Sienna Plantation Golf Club
Designed by famed course architects Arthur Hills and Mike Dasher, Sienna Plantation Golf Club's frequent elevation changes transform the flat landscape into rolling waves of green. These undulations are only the beginning of the challenges players face. On hole two, the narrow fairway and sand bunkers form a perfect storm of difficulty, forcing golfers to thread the needle or risk taking an unplanned trip to the beach. Elsewhere, flowing creeks wind around holes 16 and 17, where the promise of a rewarding score tempts players to take precise shots close to the water's edge. Live oaks and mature cedar elms along the fairways provide both scenic views of nature's beauty and ample shade for treating caddies to a picnic lunch.
