The dimples on a golf ball help it fly farther with greater accuracy, just like the dimples on a baby help it steal candy from gullible strangers. Find your adorably sporty sweet spots with today's Groupon: for $72, you get a golf outing for two people at Skywest Golf Course in Hayward (up to a $142.98 value). The golf outing includes:
• 18 holes of golf for two (up to a $39 value/person)
• A cart rental (a $15 value/person)
• Two small buckets of driving-range balls (a $5 value each)
• Lunch for two, which includes a sandwich or hot dog, a side order, and a fountain drink at the Skywest Bar & Grill (up to a $12.49 value/person)
The par 72 Skywest Golf Course tests each participant's dexterity and creativity on a 6,789-yard playground for dimpled orbs. After launching balls from one of four tee boxes, golfing duos can engage in carted pursuit along tree-lined fairways. Shots must skirt gritty bunkers, two lakes, and the reverse gravitational pull of low-hanging clouds before finding the 18 holes nestled in large, bent-grass greens. Golfers can calibrate their swings as they transport approximately 50 golf balls from a bucket to the open expanses of a driving range or putting green at Skywest's practice facilities. Stomachs suffering from midday munchies can walk their attached bodies to Skywest Bar & Grill for a noshing session inside a dining room surrounded by floor-to-ceiling windows, which let natural light in and keep peckish golf balls out.
