What You'll Get
Playing golf is a better way to commune with Mother Nature than scattering the pages of your journal throughout a national park. Get to know our planetary matron with today's Groupon for golf outings at The River Golf and Country Club in Louisburg. Choose from the following options:
- For $17, you get one 18-hole round of golf for one, plus cart rental (up to a $35 value).

The semi-private River Golf and Country Club fosters competitive sportsmanship on a challenging par 72 course. Indulge your outdoor cravings and tee off on 18 holes of tree-lined fairways and lush greens on River Golf's skill-testing course, containing 6,391 yards of terrain, multiple sand traps, roving golf-history quizmasters, water hazards, and four par 5 holes. Before taking to the grass, golfers can warm up on River Golf's chipping area, putting green, and driving range to loosen club swings in hopes of lodging a new low score. Single orb slingers or four-person golfing troupes can then traverse the course on any day of the week, including holidays, while those taking advantage of the one-month membership can engage in unlimited putting or get to know each blade of grass individually. One-month memberships are walking only, but carts may be rented for $12 per day.

About The River Golf and Country Club
Subject to the whims of the Tar River, The River Golf and Country Club's 18-hole course guides players down a winding path with few straightaway holes within its 6,391-yard length. Ten of the holes feature a dogleg turn of some degree, from the slight bend to the left in the fairway of the 1st hole to the violent rightward turn at the 15th hole. These, coupled with the four par 3s, challenge players to swing powerfully without overshooting their targets or accidentally landing their balls in a stork's nest. Additionally, the river itself comes prominently into play on several holes, calling for fairway hops on the 1st and 10th holes and a dramatic tee shot over water on the par 3 11th.
