What You'll Get
A golf course is a scenic sanctuary where young blades of grass receive constant grooming and grizzled grains of sand can retire far away from merciless ocean waves. Explore a relaxing landscape with today’s Groupon: for $179, you get a golf package at Southbridge Golf Club (up to a $988 total value). The golf package includes the following:
- 7 rounds of golf (up to a $34 value each; patrons must pay an additional $16 cart fee for each round)
- 10 one-hour small group clinics (a $75 value each)<p>
Designed by prolific course architect Rees Jones, Southbridge Golf Club’s 18-hole, par 72 course commingles indigenous arbors with treacherous water hazards across 6,922 yards of scenic Savannah woodlands. Ponds, streams, and other aquatic antagonists plague errant shots on nearly every hole, giving advantage to players that demonstrate deft command of each club and sound course management, as well as flautists well versed in charming territorial merpeople. Pines and oaks preside ominously over the edges of narrow fairways, impeding clubbers’ passage as they continue their quest towards large, boldly contoured greens guarded by formidable bunkers and grass mounds that produce more awkward lies than a grown man caught trick-or-treating. Players must pay the cart fee before each round, granting them a club-toting conveyance that glides over the course’s rustic bridges and subtle slopes.
On their mission to more reliably pulverize tiny things with metal clubs, players can augment course play with 10 small group lessons organized by Southbridge Director of Golf Chris Thompson and his assistant professionals. The one-hour clinics never exceed a class size of 10 students, granting pupils ample opportunities to engage golf gurus in discussions about their grip, stance, or the tragic downfall of the mashie niblick.

About Southbridge Golf Club
Groves of oaks and georgia pines reflect off the glassy surface of strategically placed water hazards at Southbridge Golf Club’s 18-hole course, the grassy brainchild of renowned course architect Rees Jones. Soaring above the 6,922-yard layout, wayward golf balls may carom off of the dense population of timbers, nestle into the pillowy sands of deep bunkers, or sink into the abyss of ponds, streams, and lava pits that come into play on nearly every hole. Large greens await at the end of each hole, eager to befuddle golfers with breaking putts and a fast, well-maintained surface. An onsite driving range nurtures golfers relationships with their clubs, and a menu of fresh meat, seafood, and salad at the genteel diner of Vickery’s at Southbridge curbs hunger that may sap strength from drives or preempt post-round putter-jousting competitions.
