Before man conquered his fear of water, he amused himself with dust sports such as pushing boulders off cliffs, wrestling tumbleweeds, and falling in the dust. Enjoy the fruits of conquered fears with today's Groupon: for $45, you get any watersport ride and lesson with a round of disc golf (a $90 value) at Trophy Lakes in Johns Island. The 100-acre complex—managed by Carolina Watersports—keeps aquatic adrenaline flowing with two private man-made lakes, a wakeboard slider park, slalom water ski course, and ski jump. After a 25 – 30 minute lesson on how to properly handle the buoyant equipment of your choice, you'll get to spend the next 25 – 30 minutes water-skiing, wakeboarding, dodging slaloms, and gaining some air time off the jump ramps. After your sure-footed surface-surfing has reduced the last wave to a whimpering, weeping splash, you can kick back with a full day of flinging fun on the 18-hole disc golf course (disc rental not included with this Groupon). Sessions must be scheduled by phone.
- Trophy Lakes was built in 1988 and has had more records than any other ski lake in history. Trophy Lakes was built more than 30 years ago by skiers for skiers. Owners Kim Bryant and Alan Sanner have held record tournaments since 1991. The two gleaming lakes have two slalom courses and one jump. – Melanie Mathos, Visit South
For more than 20 years, the aquatic athletes at Trophy Lakes have set national and world records all the while maintaining a 100-acre water-sports and disc-golf complex that has been admired by WaterSki magazine. Disc golfers launch frisbees from 35 concrete tee pads, sinking their discs into 18 baskets. Along the way, water holes and a host of tee-and-pin locations challenge players' throwing skills. Alternatively, two private lakes boast three watersports cables, as well as a slalom course and ski jump. Knowledgeable staff members rent ropes, gloves, skis, wakeboards, and MasterCraft Boats from their well-stocked pro shop. Additionally, Trophy Lakes hosts disc-golf competitions, wakeboard festivals, water-ski tournaments, and lake-drinking contests each year.
