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 $49, you get 18 holes of golf for two, including cart rental, at The Golf Club at Rio Vista (up to a $98 value).
The Golf Club at Rio Vista stuns sphere slingers with views of the scenic Sacramento River Delta and an 18-hole course featuring more than 6,800 yards of undulating fairways, ample water reservoirs, and lush greens. With the included cart, a club-lugging duo can effortlessly traverse the picturesque terrain designed by renowned course-architect Ted Robinson Sr., quickly cruising to each landing before burrowing Pac-Men eat through the green and devour golf balls. Golfing gurus and putting plebes alike delight in surmounting the obstacles situated between them and an under-par scorecard, employing determined mindsets and careful club selections to overcome protracted expanses, greenside sand traps, and aquatic snares. Although not included with this Groupon, guests can stop in at the on-site Rio Vista Nines restaurant after their game for a bite of salad, a sandwich, or a hearty entree.
