What You'll Get
In golf, birdie refers to one stroke under par, whereas eagle refers to the flying carnivores players train to swipe their opponents’ clubs. Swing through with today’s Groupon: for $40, you get a golf outing for two at Skyline Country Club in Lanesborough (up to an $86 total value). The outing includes:
- 18 holes of golf for two (up to a $56 value)
- Golf-cart rental (a $30 value)
Set on the undulating hills of the Berkshires, Skyline Country Club's 18-hole golf course provides picturesque panoramas of the mountains and Pontoosuc Lake, challenging golfers with a fluctuation of uphill and downhill shots. The 6,297-yard, par 72 course features varied terrain covered in skill-testing undulations, forcing golfers to utilize strategic approach shots and a plethora of trick sticks to overcome the natural geographic obstacles. The lengthy, sloping greens are hemmed in by sandy bunkers that golfers must artfully dodge to avoid run-ins with territorial chipmunks building sandcastle empires. Every hole presents a unique challenge, including the par 5 12th hole, a long, straight tee shot offering eagle opportunities that can quickly dissolve on the fast green, which runs away from the golfer. The included golf cart facilitates speedy between-hole travels, eases the strain of lugging gear uphill, and provides the vehicle required for tie-breaking drag races.

About Skyline Country Club
Skyline Country Club is a semi-private club that welcomes golfers with sweeping views of the Berkshire mountains and glimmering waters that intersect the grounds. Elevation changes and blind tee shots are frequent throughout the 6,075-yard course, as seen on the 4th hole, which rewards precise tee shots of roughly 110–165 yards with an easy 110-yard shot to the green. The par 5 12th, the course's most difficult hole, forces players to drive onto a tight fairway along the straight 490-yard layout that ends with a false front, a greenside slope that often tricks golfers and sends balls rolling back toward the player like an industrial-grade pop-a-shot. After finishing the course with two consecutive par 4's, golfers can retire to the Club's pub for drinks and eats on the open-air deck, which offers views of the surrounding landscape.
