Before golf was invented, grassy pastures were viewed as the exclusive territory of roaming sheep, herds of cattle, and overzealous Civil War reenactors. Celebrate turf's competitive utility with today's Groupon to Stonebridge Golf Club. Choose between the following options:
- For $45, you get a round of golf for two after 10 a.m., including a golf cart (up to a $94 value).
- For $19, you get five large buckets (90 balls in each) of driving-range balls (a $50 value).
Designed in 1991 by golf-course architect Arthur Hills, Stonebridge Golf Club's par-72, 18-hole course entwines strategically placed groves, placid ponds, and pastoral vistas. Subtle elevation changes and winding fairways reward skillful shot makers with a reverent silence, and several tee options at each hole challenge players of all ability levels. With the motorized cart, pairs can save their walking energy for more thrilling pursuits, such as panning for gold in a water obstacle or sand trap. Players aiming to hone their swing technique can opt for five super-sized ball buckets, to be used on the course's practice driving range, putting green, or golf-ball pit. Parched putters can seek refreshment at the club's on-course beverage carts or persevere until the end of their round to retrieve sustenance from Stonebridge's full-service bar and restaurant.
