Since great aunts cannot resist pinching dimpled cheeks, the overwhelming number of dimples on a golf ball should confuse their grabby hands—defeating them once and for all. Drive dimpled dandies back into their holes with today's Groupon: for $59, you get 18 holes of golf for two plus cart rental at The Plantation Course at Edisto in Edisto Beach (a $118 value). This secluded course on serene Edisto Island has offered golfers its challenging plethora of natural and man-made obstacles since 1973, and underwent a complete makeover in 2006. The 18-hole odyssey, (divided into a front nine and back nine, is covered with lush paspalum grass, softly blanketing the gnomes and satyrs who slumber beneath the tees. Golf carts, each equipped with a cooler, are available to assist in transporting plaid-shrouded bodies and bags of metal clubs. Pop into the pro shop before or after hitting the course to stock up on snacks or supplies. This Groupon entitles two golfers to one 18-hole round each, so bring a friend, a spouse, or a favorite government official. Be sure to check out the dress code to avoid traversing the green in your cut-off denim tutu.
