Like painting a portrait or fixing a computer, completing a round of golf is always more impressive when it’s done in the pouring rain. Enjoy equally impressive fair-weathered fores with today's Groupon: for $150, you get a fall season pass to Warm Springs Golf Course (a $318 value). The pass nets customers unlimited greens fees (not including cart rental) in the months of September, October, November, and December.
Nestled alongside the banks of the Boise River, Warm Springs Golf Course spans 6,719 yards of lush, tree-lined terrain. A championship-style, par 72 course, Warm Springs beckons to inaccurate novices and driver devotees alike with its circuit of open, generous fairways, though a network of mature trees ominously awaits to snatch the life forces from particularly ill-struck orbs. Formidable golfers will need full control off the tee to bisect the fairway as it doglegs around an encroaching pond on the par 4 seventh hole, while sound approaches, confident putts, and dream catchers crafted out of broken tees will be necessary to navigate the course's consistently bunkered, well-maintained bent-grass greens.
Five ponds complicate club wielders' ability to traverse the grassy monolith without losing a ball to the watery abyss, even though surrounding views of the Boise Foothills provide a scenic venue for golf-ball funerals. Warm Springs offers three tees to make the course surmountable for clubbers of all abilities, and players can scout the course map and scorecard before looping the links themselves.
