The dimples on a golf ball help it fly farther with greater accuracy, just as the dimples on a baby help it steal candy from gullible strangers. Find your adorably sporty sweet spots with today's Groupon: for $28, you get nine holes of golf for two with a cart and two sleeves of balls at Westwood Golf Course in Scottsburg (up to a $58 value).
Open since 1966, Westwood Golf Course was designed by Gilbert England and challenges both budding club wielders and old golf hands to complete its course in 35 strokes. Golfers can pick one of the four tee-off areas, pop open a sleeve of balls, and bravely slice and hook their way through nine holes—all of which are guarded by water hazards, ominous out-of-bounds areas, or the Mongolian death worm. Follow in the footsteps of Fuzzy Zoeller, who played a high-school match at Westwood, as you take on the course’s famous Hole 6. One of the trickiest par 3 holes in Southern Indiana, it is said that on moonlit nights, one can hear the spirits of lost golf balls crying out from its murky depths.
After triumphing over the green, golfers can celebrate by visiting the remodeled pro shop, once the house of original course owner Homer Madden. Peruse name-brand golf clubs, or observe other ball-battlers from the large outdoor deck overlooking the course. The lounge, Buried Lies, invites golf enthusiasts to watch the pros on the HD widescreen TV or to shovel a little more dirt over that sick-day call to work.
