What You'll Get
Like suntans and the ability to slice apples by throwing knives in their general direction, golf skills disappear if you don't keep working at them. Keep the magic alive with today's deal: for $42, you get 18 holes of golf for two and a cart rental at Tuckaway Golf Club in Crete. Rates vary by day and time, with weekends ranging from $54 to $98 and weekdays from $50 to $74. Two people must play together (one person cannot redeem the Groupon for 36 holes).
Located in the rolling hills of Crete, 40 miles south of Chicago, Tuckaway Golf Club is a public golf facility with a 6,225-yard backyard filled with sloping fairways, gorgeous trees, and meticulously manicured, small greens that provide challenging putts for even the most steady-armed golfists. With three patriotic colored tees at each hole placed at different distances from the hole, pendulum swingers of all abilities can enjoy an 18-hole outing of putting, strutting, and cruising the course at a balmy 12 mph in a cart.
Players who ball during the week get a bucket of range balls to practice launching dimpled orbs from one of the 20 grass tees. Once the round is finished, visit Tuckaway's clubhouse, which has amenities such as a bar and grill, pro shop, and Zamboni garage. Call ahead to schedule a tee time.

About Tuckaway Golf Club
Designed in 1960 by John Ellis, the Tuckaway Golf Club course is located 40 miles from downtown and features 6,225 yards of greens, fairways, and sand traps. Though only one par 5 exists on the front nine, the back nine challenges players to make up for lost scoring opportunities with three par 5s and cups not covered with cellophane. Gently sloping fairways bob and weave through beautifully forested acreage, bending around majestic pines and stately oak trees and opening up onto small greens. Prior to tee times, players can practice their hacks on the driving range's 20 grass tees or work on greenside feel at the chipping and pitching green.
