What You'll Get
Since great aunts cannot resist pinching dimpled cheeks, the overwhelming number of dimples on a golf ball should confuse their grabby hands—defeating them once and for all. Drive dimpled dandies back into their holes with today's deal: for $76, you get 18 holes of golf for two people and a cart at JC Golf's Twin Oaks Golf Course in San Marcos. Though rates vary based on day, time, and residency status, this Groupon can be used mostly anytime (except holidays, during group/tournament play, and before noon on Saturdays or 11 a.m. on Sundays), giving it a value of up to $152.
A 6,535-yard, par-72 championship course rife with gorgeous protected wildlife, the Ted Robinson–designed Twin Oaks Golf Course takes advantage of the area's undulating terrain to craft a course that is both welcoming to beginners and challenging to veterans. Three lakes and a stream span multiple holes in the finely planned course, and more than 4,000 mature trees rest aside well-kept fairways and quick, oscillating greens. Feel free to combine Groupons for a game of four, allowing you to settle work-related disputes with co-workers, the winner proudly planting hole 18's flag pin into the fairway, declaring it property of the accounting department.
Golf is one of the few sports a person can successfully play for a lifetime, and comes in handy for horror-movie auditions, weed whacking, and defending your home from a renegade windmill that can only be stopped by a properly timed ball that soars between the windmill's blades and lodges itself in its air intake pipe.
The value of today's deal is based on SoCal resident pricing, and reaches its maximum value on weekends.
- An adjacent protected wildlife habitat, water on many holes, a great layout, elevation changes and fast greens make this a very interesting and fun course to play over and over again. – San Diego Golf Pages
- The greens at Twin Oaks are consistently true and they’re also pretty quick. Like the course, many of the greens feature difficult slopes. – Shaun Keating, San Diego Entertainer
- This course is pretty long and tight. Lost a few more balls than usual. Fairways and greens very well kept. Overall a very nice golf course to play. – Clean Plate s., Yelp
