Every golf course goes through a rebellious phase, sprouting water hazards, obnoxious sand traps, or an anchor tattoo on its back nine. Honor the discipline of golf with today's Groupon: for $40, you get 18 holes of golf for two with a cart at Sycamore Golf Club (up to an $86 value).
Welcoming golfers of all skill levels for more than 85 years, Sycamore Golf Club maintains well-kept greens that unfold over 5,881 yards (5,364 from the ladies' tee) along the Kishwaukee River. Golfers can cruise comfortably through the bentgrass fairways with clubs, golfing buddies, and hitchhiking herons securely stowed in a motorized golf cart. Boldly engage each of the par 71 (ladies par 71/72) course's 18 holes, which challenge club wielders with eleven par 4 and three par 5 holes from the men's tee. Dimpled spheres propel over obstacles including bunkers, open man-hole covers, and water hazards as players competitively hone their swings and expand their arboreal vocabulary along the scenic, tree-lined greens.
Sycamore Golf Club
Since the first fairway drive in 1923, players at Sycamore Golf Club have sent their golf balls cruising down tree-lined chutes blanketed in pristine bentgrass in effort to conquer the course par of 71. The 18-hole course straddles the Kishwaukee River and extends to a total length of 5,817 yards from the back tees and 5,302 yards from the front tees. A meticulous maintenance team keeps the course in excellent condition, meaning golfers will rarely have to hit out of fairway divots or find their golf ball running away with vagabond gangs of crabgrass tumbleweeds.
