Much like NASA’s Voyager 1 probe, a golf ball is a tiny object propelled into vast space, with the ultimate destination being the center of a black hole. Tee up for an interstellar outing with today’s Groupon: for $45, you get 18 holes of golf plus cart rental for two at The Golf Club at Camelot in Lomira (up to a $90 value).
Carved by ice-aged glaciers, The Golf Club at Camelot’s rolling hills and dimpled dales greet links lovers, who can slice, chip, and inflict divots over a well-manicured par 71 playground. From any of four sets of tees, orb wallopers can put woods and irons to use maneuvering the ball around imposing trees and past pretty yet pesky water hazards. Golfers can soak up stunning pastoral views between shots at sloping greens, which offer tricky putts but even trickier crossword puzzles mowed into the crosshatching.
An included cart rental gives duos and their clubs a piggyback ride over more than 6,000 yards of undulating terrain, letting legs off the hook until it comes time to produce the lower half of a sand-trap snow angel. The Golf Club at Camelot also hosts preened practice facilities for players to complete preround rituals, while postmatch mouths can celebrate a superb scorecard with ample eats and drinks available on the premise.
The Golf Club at Camelot's rates fluctuate throughout the week and by age and season, including certain specials on weekends; plan ahead to make sure you're redeeming your Groupon at the most opportune time.
The Golf Club at Camelot
Awarded with numerous accolades from the Golf Course Owners of Wisconsin, The Golf Club at Camelot earns recognition for the course's pristine playing conditions of wooded hills and valleys whittled into the landscape by ancient glaciers. Water flows into the picture on half of the holes, including twice on the par 5 ninth, where the fairway bend features an elongated lake and makes players hit their first and second shots with hydrophobic golf balls. On the back nine, the par 3 13th hole places golfers 120 feet higher than the green on a tee box that affords panoramic views of the surrounding landscape and acts as the best place to spot outlaw foursomes on the lam.
