An excerpt of a popular golf joke accuses, "Hungry golfer who?" Today's Groupon puts the punch line right under your nose. For $30, you get $60 worth of fresh, elegant fare at Tanglewood Golf Club's Fountain View Restaurant, plus 18 holes of golf with a cart on the course that CityVoters named best golf course in 2009 (a combined value of up to $105). Tanglewood is located on Ten Mile Road in South Lyon, about 37 mile-long pendulum shots from downtown Detroit.
A sunny afternoon's work of putting putter to ball does more than bring up latent emotions about middle-school health class—it also brings up a hunger for fine dining. The lunch and dinner menus at the newly opened Fountain View Restaurant feature freshly prepared provisions that pair perfectly with the restaurant's view of Tanglewood's verdant greens. As you gaze at the links and begin to strategize through Fountain View's windows or bat lashes at the landscape from the outdoor patio, appease your grumbling food box with an order of scampi-style shrimp ($9), served over capellini in a mushroom-tomato broth, or a flatbread pizza and grilled veggies ($8), with fresh mozzarella and toasted oregano. With your mouth woken and wide eyed, direct its attention to a Fountain View specialty, the salmon roulade, a decadent buttery fish feast stuffed with shrimp, lobster, spinach, and jack cheese and served with mushroom risotto and asparagus ($14 for lunch, $19 for dinner). If you're collecting bones from your meals to complete your Rube Goldberg machine, order a bone-in “cowboy” rib eye—16 succulent ounces of Angus beef smothered in a bourbon demiglace with pearl onions and mushrooms and served with a jumbo baked potato and broccoli ($34 for dinner only).
On the same day as your visit to Fountain View or as a separate outing, you can enjoy 18 holes of golf with a cart ($35–$45 value) on Tanglewood's award-winning course. Tanglewood boasts 27 holes broken down into three challenging nine-hole courses, as well as an experienced staff that will answer strategic questions for butterscotch bribes. Each course has a unique set of exciting challenges, but all feature striking scenery. Check the website for descriptions and ratings of each nine-hole course. You may redeem this Groupon for a round anytime Monday through Friday or after 3 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. Reservations are required at Fountain View Restaurant, and you must call to schedule a tee time.
This Groupon may not be used toward alcohol.
- The course is always very well maintained and the staff is very friendly and helpful. The course is also a challenge. I have played there weekly for 4 years and still have not mastered many of the holes! – Kristin Y, CityVoter
