What You'll Get
A challenging game, golf requires players to have a rudimentary understanding of physics, coordination, and the ability to read greens written in a language known only to cows. Practice this past-time's prerequisites with today's Groupon: for $69, you get four rounds of golf at Twin Brooks Golf Course (up to a $140 value) in Hyannis. Golfers can redeem today's deal by playing one round with three friends, playing two rounds with one friend, or playing four rounds alone.
Twin Brooks Golf Course challenges and entertains golfers of any age or skill with 18 holes enveloped by trees and dotted with water hazards and sand traps. The par three course winds over 2,651 yards of green, rolling hills and somersaulting banks with holes ranging from 90 to 215 yards. Taking average golfers between two-to-three hours to complete, the course is speckled with five ponds and 36 sand traps filled with the Cape's finest sand and ball-stealing crabs. The Geoffrey S. Cornish designed course is rated 57.6 with a slope rating of 83. As golfers chip, drive, and putt they fill corneas with glimpses of tree-lined fairways, elevated greens and fairways trimmed to appease level-wielding golfers and picky worms.
The course is located in the Resort and Conference Center at Hyannis, pampering golfers with amenities including a pro shop, café, bars and restaurants (not included in today's Groupon).

About Twin Brooks Golf Course
Stretching across immaculate greenery and pristine waters that run alongside Cape Cod’s Melody Tent, Twin Brooks Golf Course’s 18-hole, par 3 layout is a treat for players of all abilities. Only one hole exceeds 200 yards in length on the par 54 course, though the design still manages to fit in plenty of obstacles, including five ponds and 36 strategically placed sand traps, each one filled to the lip with soft Cape sand and disoriented sunbathers. Players who have stepped into the tee box recently may have noticed a difference: the teeing grounds have all been leveled, reshaped, and covered with new turf. The improvement is just one of many the course has undertaken in the last several months. Others include repairing the cart paths, upgrading the landscaping with railroad ties and new plantings, and reshaping the tree line along the fairways to make the course feel more open and remove potential obstructions. Players can expect a round to take between two and three hours, and Twin Brooks offers both pull carts and gas-powered carts for an additional fee.
