Like the seedpod of the sacred lotus, golf courses are filled with holes and cause feelings of euphoria when chewed. Swing and be merry with today's Groupon: for $18, you get nine holes of golf and golf-cart rental at William J. Devine Golf Course at Franklin Park in Dorchester (up to a $40 value). This Groupon is valid seven days a week after 5 p.m.
Established in 1896, William J. Devine Golf Course inspires greens-goers to hone their strokes at one of the oldest public courses in the nation. William J. Devine Golf Course's more than 6,600 yards were designed by Frederick Law Olmsted, the famed architect behind New York’s Central Park and the concept of sea level, and redesigned by the “Michelangelo of golf” Donald Ross. The course has earned a 72.1 course rating, a bent-grass-slope rating of 120, and a “va-va-voom” rating on the gorgeous index. Across nine holes (up to a $29 value), putters maneuver through manicured fairways and precarious sand traps on a golf cart (an $11 value) as they sense the ghostly presence of legends, including Willie Campbell, who became the first head professional at the course; precocious prodigy putter Bobby Jones, who fine-tuned his stroke on the grounds; and George F. Grant, the inventor of the golf tee and organic astroturf, who pioneered minority play at the course.
