Long ago, Scottish polo players longed for a game in which 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 to one of four courses operated by Sterling Golf Management. Choose between one of the following options:
- For $30, you get a round of golf plus a cart (up to a $60 value).
- For $99, you get a round of golf plus two carts for four golfers (up to a $240 value).
Today's Groupon can be used at any of the following courses:
- Shattuck Golf Club in Jaffrey, NH.
- Norwood Country Club in Norwood.
- Newton Commonwealth Golf Course in Newton.
- Chelmsford Country Club in Chelmsford.
Entwined with verdant countryside and peppered with crafty obstacles, each of the four courses provide challenging play for divot diggers of all experience levels. Resting in the gorgeous granite foothills of Mount Monadnock, Shattuck Golf Club boasts a course bordered by oak and pine trees, with exquisite views after every 250-yard drive. Norwood Country Club's links, designed by Sam Mitchell, features mostly flat fairways and medium-sized greens, an accessible contrast to the relatively short but sand-trap-, water-hazard-, and feral-caddy-ridden Newton Commonwealth Course, located a short distance from downtown Boston. Quiet and picturesque, Chelmsford Country Club offers nine holes playable for all skill levels, though putt-putters can play each hole twice for complete round or one hole 18 times to attain supreme fairway mastery. With each round, linksmen will also receive a rental cart to motor around from shot to shot and enjoy the diverse wildlife, such as minks, foxes, moose, otters, Mark Wahlberg, and great blue herons.
Sterling Golf Management's courses' rates fluctuate based on a number of factors; plan ahead to make sure you're redeeming your Groupon at the most opportune time. Some courses also offer discounts or specials, but because of its low rates and lack of restrictions, this Groupon is still the best deal around.
Sterling Golf Management
With eight distinct courses etched into the New England countryside, Sterling Golf Management promotes pin-hunting recreation for Boston-area golfers of all abilities. The longest and most difficult of the eight, The Shattuck Golf Club's 18-hole course kicks off with a 409-yard par 4 where players hack their way toward a green that is visually wreathed by the rising red rocks of Mount Monadnock, setting the tone for a scenic, 6,764-yard round. Groves of trees ensconce the fairways and barter over carbon dioxide at Norwood Country Club's recently renovated course, a relatively flat layout characterized by smallish greens and flanked by a lighted driving range. The newest members to the Sterling Golf Management team is the Winchendon Golf Club, which originally opened in 1926, was designed by Donald Ross and features 18 holes, and the Unicorn Golf Course, originally designed by Stiles and Van Cleek as a private course in 1928, features a nine-hole course. Lying between tall oaks for a picturesque par-54 round is the Rockland 18 par-3 holes course. Designed in 1921 in the Donald Ross tradition is the Maynard Golf Course, a picturesque par 70, 9-hole course with a full-service clubhouse. The same sylvan makeup returns at Newton Commonwealth's course, where lush tree lines cast shadows over a creek as it snakes across the fairways of seven holes. Rounding out the grassy octuplet, Chelmsford's nine-hole course takes golfers careening across 2,467 yards of narrow fairways, placing straight drives or skilled golf ball pilots at a premium.
