Long ago, Scottish polo players longed for a game where they could explore scenic terrain, ride an obedient mechanical horse, and wear more courageously plaid knickers. Marvel in their subsequent invention with today's Groupon: for $39, you get 18 holes of golf for two people plus a cart (up to a $78 value) at The Fairways in Cheney. You may combine Groupons to form a foursome. Today's deal is not valid until after 11 a.m. on weekends. The course closes in October or early November, and reopens in March or April.
An exciting blend of fast greens, subtle undulations, and elevation changes mark the winding, scenic course at The Fairways, offering a pleasurable contest for all skill levels. Even at the practice area, the view of the horizon and contiguous hills forms an animated canvas for each artful stroke and brushing putt. Head out with a sidekick linksman (up to a $52 combined value on weekends) to tame the engines of your provided cart ($26 value), and then rove the unknown flatlands for 18 holes of club-and-ball at The Fairways which has proven its mettle in numerous tournaments and minotaur rallies.
Golf with friends is the best kind of bonding. There's nothing like being out in the open air, hearing the wind blow through the beautiful old trees lining the well-groomed fairways, and refusing to grant your compadres mulligans. The satisfaction of a well-played hole is amplified by enjoyment you get from your partner's three-shot spectacle in the woodsy rough. Call ahead to schedule your tee time.
Not valid for one person to play 36 holes.
The Fairways Golf Course
The Fairways Golf Course’s layout unfurls over rolling terrain teeming with wetlands and native grasses. Multiple water hazards and fast greens pose challenges for experienced players, and relatively open fairways and a set of closer, forward tees cater to golfers of all experience levels. A dramatic conclusion awaits at the par-4, 419-yard 18th hole—the course’s most challenging hole—where golfers must contend with a dog-leg right and a small pond that arches around the front and left sides of the green. Golfers can prepare for the round at the driving range and practice green, or simply ask the course’s beverage-cart operator for the liquid cure for a slice-prone swing.
