Before golf was invented, grassy pastures were viewed as the exclusive territory of roaming sheep, herds of cattle, and overzealous Civil War reenactors. Celebrate turf's competitive utility with today's Groupon: for $85, you get three 18-hole rounds of golf with cart rental at Traditional Golf Properties (up to a $174 value). This Groupon is valid at Kiskiack in Williamsburg, Stonehouse in Toano, Royal New Kent or Brickshire in Providence Forge, or The Crossings in Glen Allen. Groupon holders can use all three games at one course or mix and match games between courses.
Amid Traditions’ five scenic fairways, championship tees and carefully placed bunkers test the technique of ball smackers and accommodate casual play. Players club through the meticulously designed 18-hole par 71 and 72 courses, which wind by a variety of natural scenery, from woods and glistening streams to dramatic contours and sand traps hosting life-size dioramas of The Iliad. Game-day golfers will also receive a cart for cruising the majestic fairways. Though meals are not included in today’s deal, players can retire to each course's clubhouse, where they will find a lunch menu of classic American fare to reward them for not popping wheelies on their golf carts.
