It’s difficult to hit a target from far away, which is why holes-in-one are rare and the Goodyear blimp has never been shot successfully with an arrow. Drive hard with a vengeance, thanks to today’s Groupon: for $69, you get four 18-hole rounds at Twin Brooks Golf Course in Hyannis (up to a $140 value). Rounds can be redeemed over multiple visits or by one foursome.
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 provides abridged club-flailing fun for players of all abilities. With only one hole exceeding 200 yards in length, the petite par 54 affords duffers a chance to practice their iron play from the tee box, where each shot carries the potential for a stunning hole-in-one or social experiment to find out if shy golf balls will befriend one of the five on-course ponds. In order to complete the 2,621-yard jaunt, spiky-shoed swingers must contend with 36 strategically placed sand traps, each one filled to the lip with soft Cape sand and displaced sunbathers. Duffers can expect the round to take between two and three hours, and Twin Brooks offers both pull carts and gas-powered carts for an additional fee.

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.
