Like triathletes, golfers must develop three physical skill sets to effectively sprint down fairways, swim through water hazards, and race on camelback across sand traps. Hone a well-rounded golf game with this Groupon.
$58 for a Round of Golf for Two Including Cart (a $118 Value)
Golfers choose from five sets of tee boxes as they swing their way through a course whose water impediments lie in wait around putting greens and along fairways. Duos can play during the week or after 1 p.m. on Saturday or Sunday.
The Refuge Golf Club
Designed by course architect Kevin Norby, The Refuge Golf Club cleaves through 350 acres of woods and wetlands to frame an 18-hole, par 72 course. Native grasses, wooden cart bridges, and immaculate bluegrass fairways characterize this northern-style course, which challenges golfers with tight tree lines and abundant sunbathing opportunities for losing shirts in sand traps. If golfers haven't spotted much wildlife throughout the course, they might find a gallery of hawks, deer, and feral caddies watching at the 17th, the course's second-most-difficult hole. Clubbers must blast tee shots over a forced carry before safely landing on an open fairway that leads to a green flanked by bunkers on both sides. Players can warm up for rounds at the 20-stall driving range and contoured putting green, and PGA professionals help golfers hone their game during private lessons. Meanwhile, a 13,000-square-foot clubhouse built of rock and cedar beckons for post-round revelry in the facility's restaurant, bar, and pro shop.
