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 4s, fourteen par 3s, and one mysterious castle with a 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.
