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 $35, you get a golf outing at St. John's Golf and Country Club (a $70 value). The outing includes:
- One 18-hole round with cart rental (a $64 value)
- Large bucket of range balls (a $6 value)
Surpassing more than 125 courses to garner the title Facility of the Year from its managing company in 2010, St. John's Golf and Country Club hosts an 18-hole course sculpted to accommodate golfers of all experience levels with a family tee that reduces the 7,250-yard course to 2,400 yards. After honing driving skills with a bucket of range balls, players cruise across courses in carts, pausing to admire the beauty of the surrounding pine forest or invade the castles left in sandpits by aspiring architect landscapers. Wielding their personal putters, guests can spend a sunny afternoon hitting range balls across the course's challenging layout or spend a windy afternoon trying to hire industrial fans as caddies to counteract the elements.
St. John's Country Club hosts a golf shop, where customers may purchase equipment and apparel for an additional charge. Although not included with this Groupon, postgame golfers can kick back in the Grille Room for burgers, beers, or pizza while chuckling at golfers trying to decipher the Morse-code game tips spelled out in tee divots on the ninth and 18th greens.
St. Johns Golf & Country Club
The needles of pine trees brush together softly in the forests that line St. Johns Golf & Country Club, mimicking the bated breath of golfers as they wait for a ball to fall on the bunker-speckled 18th hole. The undulating green caps the 7,250-yard Clyde Johnston-designed course, where golfers unleash their swings from one of five tee distances. The course has served as host of the PGA Tour Q-School for five consecutive years, and a practice facility with a 10,000-square-foot putting green and double-sided driving range allows golfers to work on their grip or stop yelling a childhood secret every time they swing the club. Chatter and the sound of clicking margarita glasses drift down to the course from a restaurant with views of the 9th and 18th holes, and a banquet hall hosts wedding receptions and other gatherings.
