Golf is considered a gentleman's game due to its emphasis on proper etiquette, colour-coordinated outfits, and the removal of all brass knuckles and inflatable billy clubs before competition. Come out swinging in a civilized manner with today's Groupon: for $20, you get nine holes of golf for two at Thunderbird Sports Centre in Kanata (up to a $41 value, including HST).
Thunderbird Sports Centre challenges clubswingers' short game on its nine-hole, par 27 Thunderbird Golf Course. Honouring the undulating terrain, plentiful evergreens, and deciduous trees, the course layout sets a brisk pace with a 10-storey metronome at the center and holes ranging from 88 to 142 yards. Design elements elevate play even further, intermingling bodies of water, sand traps, and deep rough. The fully lit course stays open until 10:30 p.m., or whenever the area's stone gargoyles come to life. Pull cart ($3.75) and club rentals ($9.15) are also available, and golfers can refresh before or after a game at the pro shop.
