Putt the icicles off the sport of Scottish kings with this Groupon: for $14, you'll get a game of miniature golf and two medium ball buckets for the driving range at Tee It Up in West Chester ($28 value; one round of mini golf normally costs $8 and two medium-sized buckets cost $20).
Hone your drive during winter months on Tee It Up's driving range. There are 24 covered stalls and 14 heated stalls for genial golfing through winter's gusty gales. Two medium-sized buckets carry 150 balls, giving you plenty of practice drives before perfecting your putt in a game of mini-golf.
Originally invented as a groundskeeper's act of revenge against his hot-tempered employer, mini-golf has since evolved into one of the most beloved, rewarding, and challenging first dates. Winter makes mini an expert's sport: It's one thing to blast a ball into the windmill, but it takes a master's touch to do it with a dusting of ice, snow, and winter's dandruff on the ramp. This Groupon is good for six months, so you can wait for spring or early summer to whack your way to golf greatness.
Yahoo! Travel reviewers give Tee It Up 4.5 stars:
The Right Club for the Right Job
My uncle was an avid golfer, and before he tragically passed in a spectacular Christmas fireworks accident that lit up the night sky across two counties to the delight of children everywhere, he left me his prized set of golf clubs and this advice: “Always use the right club for the right job.” I’m not always sure what that is, but, fortunately, he left me a list:
- Teeing off: 3-wood
- Getting out of a sand trap: Lob wedge
- Soothing colicky baby: 5-iron
- Explaining Darwinian evolution to Grandmother: 5-wood or equivalent wood-iron hybrid
- Digging grave for pet canary: putter
