A golf course is a scenic sanctuary where young blades of grass receive constant grooming and grizzled grains of sand can retire far away from merciless ocean waves. Explore a relaxing landscape with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $50 worth of range balls and rounds of golf at The Golf Village in Pineville.
The Golf Village pairs a family-friendly driving range with a nine-hole par 3 course ideal for practicing short-game skills or playing a quick round. Golfers can swing through a small bucket of range balls ($6) atop all-grass tee boxes to warm up clubs with drives, chips, and long-distance power putts. Parents can split a large bucket of range balls ($10) with their son or daughter, share tidbits on swinging techniques, and give kids a much-deserved break from homework and managing the family stock portfolio. After loosening up limbs on the range, golfers can tee off on the par 3 course ($10 for adults; $7 for juniors), which winds nine holes along the bank of a bubbling sandy-bottomed brook. The short holes put a premium on putting and demand precise iron play, punishing those who misfire shots into bunkers and erroneously attempt delicate approach shots with a driver.
The Golf Village
Hemmed by thickets of native grasses, a babbling brook winds along the fairways of The Golf Village's nine-hole, par 3 course, setting a relaxing tone that seems appropriate for a pared-down layout friendly to leisurely golfers. Adjacent to the course, The Golf Village's driving range fosters golf-game improvement during pre- or postround sessions. The range lets clubbers hit off grass tees throughout the year, and towering light fixtures hang above the green valley, allowing golfers to hone their swing after a day spent at the office or attempting to melt their leftover Civil War bullets into a set of golf clubs.
