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 to Twin Lakes Golf Course in Goleta. Choose between the following options:
- For $27, you get a nine-hole round of golf for four (up to a $54 value).
- For $60, you get four passes for all-day use of all facilities (a $120 value). This includes the nine-hole course, driving range, short-game range, and practice green.
Nestled amid lush California countryside, duffers make multifaceted strides in their golf game at Twin Lakes Golf Course’s nine-hole, par 28 executive course and sprawling practice facilities. The beginner-friendly course’s eight par 3s cater to those still seeking an elusive hole in one, and one 360-yard par 4 ensures drivers won’t require therapy for separation anxiety. Mountainous crags rising on the edges of the facility watch as duffers direct putts toward various cups throughout the practice green, which encompasses 8,500 square feet of immaculately mown grass. The complex’s short-game practice area allows clients to chip or pitch Pro-V1 balls at target nets stationed between 20 and 50 yards in the distance, and the immense driving range provides ample real estate to crush Pinnacle practice balls with every iron, wood, or refashioned weathervane in one’s bag.

Twin Lakes Golf Course
Twin Lakes Golf Course is much more than the sum of its parts. With a 9-hole, par 28 executive golf course and practice facilities that include a driving range, 8,500-square-foot putting green, and chipping area, it gives players countless ways to better their game. Visiting players can hone short, half-swing approaches and full, walloping drives on holes ranging from as close as 70 yards to as far as 360, much as they would on a full-length course. The driving range also expedites the learning curve with full-flight Pinnacle range balls primed and ready to be pummeled from real grass or synthetic tees. In the short-game area, Titleist Pro V1 golf balls simplify the act of chipping onto the green or into target nets, even as players line up shots from nearby bunkers, slopes, and grasses akin to the rough and fairway. And when players are left with nothing else to do but admire themselves in the reflection of the nearest water hazard, Twin Lakes’ resident instructors—Don Parsons, Buff Platt, and PGA head professional Jim Ley—are there to take the reins and help clients shave off a few more strokes.
