Watching a golf tournament on TV means you miss the part of the post-round ritual when golfers slip into color-coordinated jumpsuits and throw flames at golf carts. Be part of the action with today's Groupon: for $22, you get one daily grounds ticket to the 2011 U.S. Women's Open, held at the The Broadmoor (a $45 value). Your ticket is good for one day during the tournament from Monday, July 4, through Sunday, July 10.
The U.S. Women's Open is one of the United States Golf Association's premier majors and a chance to see the world's best female golfers display their driving, chipping, and golf-ball-levitation skills. Spend one of seven days analyzing the rhythmic, controlled shots from expected competitors such as Michelle Wie and the steadily putting Ai Miyazato—both trying to best last year's champion, Paula Creamer. Golf-following youths age 17 and under will be admitted free of charge with every ticketed adult, and the front row of the grandstands is reserved for children to soak in the action without being blocked by tall adults or over-large foam fingers.
Designed by renowned architect Donald Ross, The Broadmoor East Course has hosted a variety of major tournaments in its 94-year history including the 1959 U.S. Amateur Open, the 2008 U.S. Senior Open, and the 1995 U.S. Women's Open. Wide fairways and polished greens await well-struck strokes, and the course's 6,400-foot elevation affords breathtaking views of the mountains, nature's golf cleats. Join the more than 125,000 club-and-ball fanatics expected to attend the U.S. Women's Open and enjoy the fresh air, exhilarating birdie putts, and traditional flyover from 10,000 screeching bald eagles with today's Groupon.
