The proper golf swing requires calculated shifts in body weight to the front foot for the follow-through and to the chest for the celebratory worm dance. Keep the green lively with today's Groupon: for $15, you get one 18-hole round of golf (up to a $22 value) and cart rental (a $10 value) at Stonybrook Executive Golf Course, located in Hopewell (up to a $32 total value).
Stonybrook Executive Golf Course houses more than 3,600 yards of grassy grounds where golfers club, chip, and nudge dimpled balls into flagged holes. Many of the par-62 excursion's holes feature tree-framed fairways with mixed grass flooring, making each outing a true test of hand-eye coordination and agility as golfers dodge balls ricocheting off tree trunks. Once spheres hop into one of the 18 flagpoles' inner circles, they will set their indented rounds on firm bentgrass greens before being bullied into the hole by a flat-faced putter. Ball-smackers can chase rolling orbs across Stonybrook's greens on foot, from behind the wheel of a gas-powered cart, or affixed to the cart's proud bow as a winged hood ornament.
Stonybrook Executive Golf Course's rates fluctuate throughout the week.

The course at Stonybrook Golf Club weaves along verdant paths buttressed by dense walls of foliage, creating a relatively short 3,514-yard track from the back tees. Course architect Robert Krieger incorporated frequent misdirection that leads to blind shots, including double doglegs on the 6th and 15th holes, the course’s only two par 5s. When walking, a round can be finished in under three hours, letting players quickly return to daily life or the scene of the accident.
