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 $13, you get 18 holes of golf and cart rental at Whiteford Valley Golf Club in Ottawa Lake, Michigan (up to a $33 value).
Whiteford Valley Golf Club's architects adorned four undulating par 72 courses with creeks, doglegs, and timber to challenge golfers of all skill levels. Chip and putt your way to warm arms at the on-site practice facility before heading over to the east or north course, which challenge drivers with rolling hills, mature trees, and a creek full of ball-hungry hippos. The west course is the longest at up to 6,719 yards, and the indecisive south course transfers from a tree-lined front nine to an expansive back nine. At the end of your tee time, jump into the included golf cart or onto the back of a sturdy golf instructor and venture over to the club's on-site snack bar or pro shop.
Though Whiteford Valley Golf Club’s rates fluctuate throughout the week, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
Whiteford Valley Golf Club
The sinuous fairways of Whiteford Valley Golf Club's stretch across two 18-hole and one 9-hole championship-caliber courses, which roam across a rolling, emerald expanse dotted with creeks, ponds, and mature timbers. The east course, which houses the Foot-Golf course, tunnels through stands of towering trees, placing accurate tee shots and a familiarity with squirrel vernacular at a premium. The north course likewise rolls across hilly, tree-lined terrain, though water hazards play a more prominent role throughout, made evident by the first green, which is entirely fringed by a rippling pond.
Long hitters or golfers trying to make amends to recently neglected drivers can take to the west course, which packs dense tree lines into the Club's longest layout, at 7,016 yards.
