Before golf was invented, grassy pastures were viewed as the exclusive territory of roaming sheep, herds of cattle, and overzealous Civil War re-enactors. Celebrate turf's competitive utility with today's Groupon: for $30, you get 18 holes of golf for two people and a cart rental at The Fairways on Spencer Creek in Franklin (up to a $62 value). This Groupon is only valid Monday–Friday.
Lush greenery, rolling hills, and narrow fairways act as the mise-én-scene for The Fairways on Spencer Creek's cinematic nine holes, which boast a red/yellow tee rating of 61.8 and a blue/white tee rating of 64.3. Climb aboard a golf cart and putter through the course's winding paths while dodging water hazards, sand traps, and vengeful windmills. Towering trees swaddle the gameplay terrain, protecting passersby from flyaway clubs and clubs from flyaway vultures. After returning the flag to the last hole, refine your touch on the putting green or replenish nutrients at The Fairways on Spencer Creek's snack bar.
Fairways on Spencer Creek
Fairways on Spencer Creek's player-friendly course takes duffers careening across 2,632 yards of water-kissed fairways for a nine-hole pin-hunting exhibition. The petite par 33 caters to players working on their short game with four par 3s and four par 4s, and the 463-yard par 5 fifth hole ensures drivers and 3-woods don't consider collectively bargaining for more shifts out of the bag. PGA-certified aces shake rust off swings with private and small-group lessons, and a putting green helps putters calibrate their strokes before rounds.
