Like synthesizer duets and tag-team cross-stitching, rounds of golf are best executed with a buddy. Team up for a comradely round with today’s Groupon: for $79, you get one players card, which includes two greens fees for the cardholder and a guest, plus cart rental and a discounted rate of $39.99 for any additional games and cart rental throughout the summer at Twin Lakes Golf Course in Kaleden (a $159 value).
Twin Lakes Golf Course challenges golfers of all abilities with an 18-hole course spanning 285 acres of scenic valley terrain. The players card supplies holders with greens fees for club-swinging duos plus a discounted rate for future play (up to $69 regularly), so golf chums can turn one round into a summer-long battle to determine who can croon the most dulcet "fore." Both neophytes and experts can optimize their swings by way of the course's multiple tee blocks. Included carts zoom past four holes with water hazards that can stymie even the sharpest of players, and strategically placed bunkers meander through the course and double as wormholes for time-travelling camels. Elevated tees allow visitors to take in the majestic mountain vistas and forest of pines, firs, and other deciduous trees surrounding the alpine fairways.
Twin Lakes Golf Course
Only 15 minutes from Penticon, BC, Twin Lakes Golf Course stretches out over 285 acres of valley terrain, nestled among mountain slopes thick with deciduous trees such as firs and pines. The 18-hole, par 72 course takes advantage of its scenic surroundings by challenging golfers with elevated tees, which players summit with the help of shoes equipped with either cleats or spider feet. A long, treacherous sand trap lurks along hole 16’s left side, earning it recognition as the course’s second most difficult hole—just on the heels of hole seven, whose own sand trap and narrowed fairway make it the most challenging on the course. Players warm up at a driving range with six hitting stations or the chipping and putting practice areas before swinging through the course.
