Much like confronting a former bully at a high-school reunion, playing golf requires an efficient swing and at least three friends to cheer you on. Take a stand against a shank-producing stroke with today's Groupon to The Country Club of Meadville. Choose between the following options:
- For $49, you get a round of golf for one plus cart rental (a $79.08 total value).
- For $150, you get a round of golf for four plus cart rental (a $290 total value).
Established in 1905, The Country Club of Meadville is a not-for-profit organization with more than 100 years of experience catering to links lovers' golfing needs. As part of the club's 2011 membership drive, today's deal lets buyers enjoy the perks of membership for a day, including 18 holes of golf, cart rental, and dispensation to wear plaid and argyle in the same outfit. The par 72 course runs 6,800 yards from the back tees, and the club uses the USGA Ghin handicap system, allowing exciting play between players of all skill levels. Golfers also get access to the clubhouse and restaurant, opening the door to defeat-assuaging drinks in the cozy lounge or victory-celebrating feasts in the family dining room (food and drink are not covered by this Groupon). A certified Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary, the course ensconces golfers in a pristine environment unspoiled by overdevelopment or cackling animatronic gophers.
