Like suntans and the ability to throw knives at apples on top of totem poles, golf skills disappear if you don't keep working at them. Keep the magic alive with today's Groupon: for $35, you and a companion get a 12-hole round of golf, a cart, and dinner (up to a $79.80 value) at The Caddy Shak Restaurant & Driving Range in Lexington.
The Caddy Shak's par-3 course features 1,788 yards of greenery designed to accommodate golfers of all skill levels. With its beautiful natural scenery and meticulously maintained greens, the 12-hole golf course is ideal for every type of golf outing, from casual business affairs to intense dates with sworn gopher enemies. Decide once and for all who is the better player by challenging a golf adversary to a round on the impressive course, which boasts tricky tee shots, strategically placed bunkers and roughs, and life-size replicas of African safari animals.
After hitting the links, take a short cruise on the provided golf cart to The Caddy Shak's on-site restaurant and recoup energy spent on the course with a delicious 10-ounce rib-eye steak or fresh seafood dinner ($13.95 each). Each meal includes a taste-bud-tingling mixed-greens salad and two side items—such as potatoes, green beans, french fries, or hush puppies. In addition, customers receive their choice of beverage and a cheesecake dessert. For the steak-and-seafood-averse golfers, other entree selections may be substituted.
The Caddy Shak Restaurant & Driving Range
From the wedge to the driver, every club gets to spend time out of the bag and under the sun at The Caddy Shak Restaurant & Driving Range. The lighted driving range offers both artificial and Bermuda grass hitting stations, where golfers aim into an expansive target field with plenty of space for towering shots. The range even rewards players who hit consecutive balls into target buckets with cash prizes, which golfers can use to finally purchase that diamond-encrusted ball marker they’ve had their eyes on. The practice facility also encompasses a putting green, sand trap, and chipping areas. PGA instructor Jim Williams oversees the facility’s action, dispensing advice in lessons for players of all ability levels.
But Caddy Shak is not merely a practice venue. Staffers also maintain a 12-hole, par-three course, which packs all the pressure and fun of a live round into a compact 1,788-yard layout. The course tests golfers’ touch with the short stick on holes as short as 80 yards, while forcing some to reach for a 3-wood or oversized crow bar to reach greens 190 yards in the distance.
