A golf outing, like a night out on the town, should be undertaken with a few good friends, a multitude of clubs, and a strategy to avoid getting hopelessly lost in the bushes this time. Take a clear path to a relaxing retreat with today's Groupon: for $150, you get a golf trip for two to Pine Mountain Resort, located in Iron Mountain, Michigan (up to a $380 value). This Groupon expires September 30, 2011. The golf trip includes:
- Two 18-hole rounds of golf including cart rental and unlimited use of the practice facility at TimberStone Golf Course
- A two-night stay in a standard room for two at Pine Mountain Resort
Nestled in the natural beauty of the Upper Peninsula, Pine Mountain Resort encourages guests to relax in its full-service lodge before winding up on the sprawling golf course, which was ranked one of Golfweek's Best Courses You Can Play in 2011. The impeccably manicured TimberStone Golf Course is a five-star, par 72 course designed with emerald greenery, glassy waters, grassy hills, and gassy sand traps. A virtual tour shows a 360-degree panoramic view of every hole, dispelling unfounded rumors that the verdant forests and azure ponds are actually a series of plexiglas cutouts. Zip around the course behind the wheel of the included cart, which carries bags and bodies like a pack mule and expects only a handful of wooden tees in its feedbag as a sign of thanks.
Once the course competition is complete, pairs can return to relax in the brick and timber confines of the 34-room lodge. The indoor pool, hot tub, and sauna carry away stress upon a leisurely current, and the free wireless Internet lets data flow without the cumbersome clicking of a Morse code straight key. Guests can dine on-site at the Famers Restaurant (dinner not included with this Groupon) and enjoy sunrise satiation the following morning in the form of complimentary breakfast.
