Golf is considered a gentlemen's game due to its emphasis on proper etiquette, color-coordinated outfits, and the removal of all brass knuckles and inflatable billy clubs before competition. Brush up on your manners and your swing with today's Groupon: for $179, you get 10 rounds of golf and 10 lesson clinics (up to a $970 value).

Wedgewood Golfers’ Club and North Creek Golf Course serve as memorable landscapes for Southern swingers looking for a challenge in a professional, etiquette-enforced environment. Each of the 18-hole, par 72 championship courses boasts more than 6,000 yards of creatively laid out play space from the back tees. Like the last four measures of “Oh! Susanna,” golf was meant to be played at the appropriate pace. Wedgewood Golfers' Club is the home of the four-hour round, in which golfers are required to finish 18 holes in less than four hours, 10 minutes, perfect for golf carts with a schedule to keep. Wedgewood's sister course, North Creek Golf Course, strives to create an accessible round of play that can still challenge the putt reflex of experienced golfers. The champion bermuda-grass greens and Mississippi Choice bermuda fairways make North Creek easy on the eyes and soles alike.
In between tours of the links, golfers of any skill level have the opportunity to attend 10 lesson clinics at Wedgewood or North Creek. The one-hour forays into the development of improved technique typically attract about eight golfers, gifting each attendee with a more confident swing and a more intimate understanding of life from a sand trap's perspective.
