Until mankind first stepped outside in 1934, nature was thought to be a fanciful myth, like yogurt or the clutch hitter. Spend a few hours frolicking through the fresh air of truth with today’s Groupon to Twin Parks Country Club in Dripping Springs. Choose between the following options:
- For $5, you get a one-day pass (a $10 value).
- For $100, you get a gold one-year membership (a $200 value).
Situated 30 minutes southwest of Austin, Twin Parks stuffs its spacious grounds with myriad active pursuits, wilderness-seizing opportunities, and comfortable country-clubish amenities. Two sprawling championship-level disk-golf courses dotted with ponds and meadows challenge casual and experienced disk-floaters alike and local forest fairies invisibly guide each disk to its target. Mountain-bike trails proffer dynamic routes for thick-tired enthusiasts and the remainder of the sprawling elk-studded grounds beckons campers and hikers to infuse their souls with natural beauty. Amenities abound within the clubhouse, from showers, a lounge, and a pro shop to indoor pursuits such as ping-pong and pool for players seeking to dodge excessive sun.
The one-day pass bequeaths nonmembers access to the grounds and disk-golf course. Gold-level members do not have to pay green fees, can gain access to watery pursuits in the pool and hot tub, and can enjoy extended happy-hour pricing to celebrate adventure-packed days. Discounts on cabin and paintball-party rental, as well as half-priced green fees for guests, ensure members can easily extend their love of outdoorsiness to family and friends.
