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 $24, you get 18 holes of golf for two people plus a cart rental at Sierra Hills Golf Club (a $54 value).
Sierra Hills Golf Club's par-58 course features 3,100 yards of greenery designed to accommodate golfers of all skill levels. With its picturesque views of Wichita's rolling hills and meticulously maintained blue grass greens, the 18-hole executive course is ideal for every type of golf outing, from casual business affairs to intense rivalries that date back to mini-golf. Decide once and for all who is the better player by challenging a golf nemesis to a round on the impressive course, which boasts four par 4's, fourteen par 3's, and one mysterious castle with retractable drawbridge. Before hitting the links, a friendly staffer will ceremoniously hand over the keys to a noble golf cart chariot to ease the burden of heavy irons, woods, and wedges.
Sierra Hills Golf Club
The executive layout at Sierra Hills Golf Club presents a par 58 course that covers 3,100 yards and features 4 par 4s and 14 par 3s. The terrain careens across gently undulating bluegrass and past six water features, including a crescent-shaped pond that wraps itself nearly all the way around one of the greens, forming a moat to prevent local mini-golf courses from setting up windmill colonies. The 18th hole offers a dramatic end to the round, as golfers must send approach shots soaring over a water hazard stationed directly in front of the green. Sierra Hills Golf Club complements its pared-down layout with a full-length, 35-stall, natural-grass driving range, where guests can drive or bicycle-kick practice balls up to 300 yards into the distance.
