Before golf carts, intrepid players would tether their kilts to the golf ball, relying on the ball's trajectory to carry them between holes. Keep your game well grounded with today's Groupon: for $15, you get 18 holes of golf with a golf cart at The Links at Whitmore Lake (up to a $30 value, depending on tee time). Tee off anytime on weekdays or anytime after 1 p.m. on weekends or holidays at the public course, which is located about 50 miles west of downtown Detroit.
The Links at Whitmore Lake challenge seasoned swingers and golf greenhorns alike with 18 diverse holes spanning meticulously manicured fairways. The picturesque course boasts arbor-lined greens and scenic bodies of water hazard, allowing golfers to hone their skills while chipping out of pesky sand traps and tremor holes. During play, masterfully avoid stepping on cracks that break mothers' backs by rolling over them (mothers, that is) in the included golf cart. Whether you head to the greens for a weekend outing or utilize a PTO day, today's Groupon lets you leisurely putter up to putt whenever the time is right. After enjoying your 18-hole roundabout, round up your buddies and take advantage of the links' driving range, practice green, and beautiful, deck-lined clubhouse serving up a wide variety of bar bites and beverages, making a tea party out of tee time. Solidify a solid buddyship by purchasing an additional Groupon to give as a gift, either to your favorite nephew, who learned to play golf on his Wii, or to your favorite grandpa, who learned the old-fashioned way—with stiff-necked flamingos on the queen's court. Call ahead to reserve a tee time.
Whitmore Lake Golf Links
Whitmore Lake Golf Links is like two courses in one. On the front nine, golfers meander across scenic uplands, tackling hills and large, flat greens. In the second half, however, the landscape shifts to mostly wetlands, setting the back nine among boardwalks and teeing decks in the middle of the marsh. All told, wetlands cover much of the facility's 254 acres of property, where wildlife abounds as players conquer the par 71 course's wild challenges.
To prepare for the idyllic gauntlet, visitors can make a day of it at the onsite restaurant or the club's practice facilities. At both the driving range and a short-game area, golfers can perfect every aspect of their game, from their swing mechanics to the flute melodies they use to coax timid clubs from the bag.
