Like painting a portrait or fixing a computer, completing a round of golf is always more impressive when it’s done in the pouring rain. Enjoy equally impressive fair-weathered fores with today’s Groupon: for $22, you get an 18-hole round of golf with a cart at The Creek Golf Course at Hard Labor in Social Circle (up to a $45 value). The round must take place between December 1, 2011, and February 29, 2012.
Burbling streams and dense woodlands meander throughout this 6,437-yard, par 72 course and imbue each of 18 challenging holes with a tranquil, bucolic vibe. The green game board requires early precision at the first hole, where a blind tee shot catapults orbs into a descending, dogleg-left fairway featuring a sonorous bell that golfers ring to inform following players that they’ve cleared the fairway or exchanged wedding vows with a 9-iron. A rustic wooden bridge and the gentle churning of a water wheel put clubbers at ease as they approach the green of the signature 14th hole, embedded among the subtle slopes of the course’s kempt Bermuda grass greens.
Located within the natural flora and fauna of Hard Labor State Park, the course tempers its almost anachronistic remoteness with the modern refinement of rental golf carts, which help players hunt down wayward balls while saving energy for journeys home in rickshaws.
