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 $20, you get one round of golf and a cart rental with GPS (up to a $32 value) and two medium range buckets (a $16 value) at Western Skies Golf Club in Gilbert (up to a $48 total value).
The verdant landscape of Western Skies Golf Club's par-72 course teems with clean fairways and well-manicured greens, including both challenging par-three holes and occasional forgiving par fives. A lighted driving range boasts grass tee lines and precise yardages that illustrate the quality of your strokes and allow you to quip about rivals' failings with mathematical precision. Use two buckets brimming with 70 full-flighted Nike practice balls to hone swing mechanics and bolster your 3 wood's self-esteem. Following a day of al fresco play, players can drop into the club's Mulligan's Grill, where they don their most velvety peanut-eating gloves and relax with 12 HD televisions and full surround sound.
Western Skies Golf Club
Challenging course play tucked in the shadows of the Superstition Mountains characterizes Western Skies Golf Club, earning it the yearly honor of hosting the Gilbert City Championship. Players shepherd their golf balls over the 6,744-yard layout aboard carts equipped with GPS systems, which help them determine exact distances to the greens or how far the flagsticks can be thrown like javelins. Water enters play on five holes, including the 18th, where players must hit over a lake off the tee and avoid a second lake to the right of the green on their approach shot.
A lighted practice facility lets golfers pummel Pinnacle range balls into the night sky at the driving range or shore up short-game finesse at the putting and chipping greens. After a round, practice session, or bout of putter swordplay, players can visit the bar and grill to restore calories lost on the fairways and bunkers while watching 12 HD televisions.
