Like the seedpod of the sacred lotus, golf courses are filled with holes and cause feelings of euphoria when chewed. Cache your cool with today's Groupon: for $55, you get 18 holes of golf for two, cart rental, and a bucket of range balls at Terrace Lakes Resort in Garden Valley. Groupon holders also receive a 10% discount at Terrace Lakes Resort's restaurant.
Terrace Lakes' 18 holes are spread across bountiful landscapes that guarantee gratifying match play. PGA head golf pro Andy Hollister and his club-wielding crew offer a round of golf for two ($54 each) and a bucket of range balls ($4) to thwack across the verdant greens or chew on contemplatively. The grounds consist of two 9-hole courses, one full of dramatically sloping greens and the other home to labyrinthine arrays of trees. The included cart helps golfers traverse the rolling hills of Boise National Forest, golfing against the backdrop of lush alpine scenery. Afterward, enjoy a 10% discount at the resort's restaurant while regaling pals with stories of the time you wrestled Phil Mickelson in the cargo hold of a nose-diving airplane.
Terrace Lakes Resort
Sculpted into the mountainous terrain of Boise National Forest, Terrace Lakes Resort offers a natural playground to engage in all manner of outdoor pursuits. During the warmer months, hikers enjoy a whiff of Mother Nature's piney perfume as they walk miles of trails lined with evergreen trees and teeming with wildlife. Excursions on the Payette River by kayak, canoe, fishing boat, or parade float offer a refreshing respite from the summer swelter—as does the resort's geothermal heated swimming pool. The resort's 18-hole golf course challenges players with a pair of nine-hole sides that demand two distinct styles of play. The front nine's open layout gives big hitters ample space to unleash their power, while the back nine demands more control to keep the ball between dense evergreen forests that cling to both sides of the fairways.
In the winter, snowfall conceals the Resort's fairways and hiking trails, but it doesn't bury the fun. The crackling fireplace in the Resort lodge becomes the cozy trailhead to 250 acres of groomed cross-country ski tracks and terrain for snow tubing and snowmobiling. The Resort offers rental skis and snowboards, but guests must provide their own jetpacks if they prefer non-ski-lift ascents up the mountain.
