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 $18, you get two 9-hole rounds of golf for one (a $35 value) and a large bucket of range balls (a $11.06 value) at White Sands Golf Course & Practice Centre (up to a $46.06 value).
White Sands Golf Course & Practice Centre invites golfers to hone their game or play a round of 9 holes in less than two hours. Players loosen golfing arms on the driving, putting, and chipping range, finding ammunition in a large bucket of 105 balls. Athletes send miniature moons flying from one of 30 Fiberbuilt mats or 42 grass tees, judging the efficiency of arms or newly attached robot limbs against sand bunkers and distance markers that are updated daily. After successful lawn subjugation, club carousers go for a round on the 9-hole, par 3 course designed by accomplished amateur golfer and seasoned course architect Graham Cooke. Journey through well tended greens in a battle with four water hazards, sand traps, and vengeance-seeking windmills.
White Sands Golf Course & Practice Centre
Hips start swiveling with grace at White Sands Golf Course & Practice Centre, where golfers hone their form at a nine-hole executive course, extensive practice facilities, and academy classes. On the 1,477-yard course designed by Graham Cooke, golfers can choose from three tee options and finish rounds in less than two hours. To gear up for the water hazards and serpentine sand bunkers that stud the fairways, players can sharpen their technique at the extensive White Sands practice facility. Here, 30 fibre mats and 42 grass tees await along the driving range, and players can work on their victory half smiles after chipping out of the practice sand trap onto a green.
White Sands Golf Course & Practice Centre is also the site of the Graham Gunn Golf Advantage School, whose head is a member of the European Senior Tour and spent a decade as head professional at the Carleton Golf & Yacht Club. Gunn teaches clinics and offers private coaching for students who don’t want to be overheard asking how long you have to sit on a golf ball before it hatches.
