Even nerdy types can relate to sports, whether it’s using a computer keyboard as a baseball bat or recreating the hobbits' famous go-kart race out of Isengard. Revel in your nerdy passion for sports with today's Groupon: for $12, you get nine holes of golf on the lake or par-3 course and a golf-cart rental at Windy Hill Sports Complex, located in Midlothian (a $25 value).
Windy Hill Sports Complex offers a plethora of rip-roaring recreational activities in its well-kept, pristine facilities. Both courses afford golfers the opportunity to drive dimpled balls at a swift clip over hill and dale. Links lovers can slice and hook their way through an open fairway spiced with looming forests, rabid sand traps, and two holes over the Windy Hill Lake—a menacing aquatic body ready to transport stray golf balls to Davey Jones's country club.
Whether tracing trajectories over field or water, the lake course promises a pleasant golf-cart ramble through beautiful scenery and tricky obstacles suitable for muscle-stretching pros and avid beginners. The course is open every day, and lit from March through October for night golf.
Windy Hill Sports Complex
Two distinct nine-hole golf courses encircle a go-kart track, batting cages, 36 holes of miniature golf, and a 65-stall driving range at Windy Hill Sports Complex's mini metropolis of family fun. Pin-hunting posses can launch tee shots around dogleg fairways and carry approaches over water hazards at the Lake Course—which features two par 5s—or catch an abridged nine at the par 3 layout, which is lighted to facilitate late-night play without unveiling incendiary prototypes of plutonium golf balls. Foot Golf a combination of Soccer and Golf on the Par 3 Course is also available. Set on the edge of the highest point in Chesterfield County, the driving range helps players to hone their swings with 250 yards of target-peppered terrain, and the mini-golf course affords guests pressure-free practice on their putting stroke. Honda go-karts zip around the complex's quarter-mile go-kart track, where junior- and adult-size conveyances run in separate heats, and two-seater vehicles accommodate adult-child or child-gnome tandems. Across the grounds, sharp line drives resonate from the batting cages, where batsmen swing at orbs slung from mechanical hurlers at anywhere from 25 mph to 85 mph.
