Like painting a portrait or fixing a computer, completing a round of golf is always more impressive when it’s done in the pouring rain. Enjoy equally impressive fair-weathered fores with today's Groupon: for $30, you get an 18-hole round of golf for two, cart rental, and two small buckets of range balls at Thunderbolt Pass Golf Course on Petersburg Road (up to a $62 value).
Named after the Evansville-made Thunderbolt WWII fighter planes, Thunderbolt Pass Golf Course launches enjoyable outings propelled by an ample practice range, well-kept greens, and a cozy clubhouse. Golfers embark on each 18-hole odyssey with a member of the course's fleet of Club Car Precedent carts, ideal for zipping between tees and racing underground go-kart rivals to the 18th-hole finish line. The verdant, tree-lined course dares players to swing strategically, with tricky par 4 holes sprinkled over a challenging layout. Before taking to the fairways, golfers can hone spheroid-slinging prowess on Thunderbolt Pass's practice range.
