What You'll Get
Top golfers launch their balls across courses with amazing accuracy, equivalent to the Statue of Liberty tossing horseshoes around the Washington Monument. High-five with the Eiffel Tower with today's Groupon: for $52, you get an 18-hole round of golf for two with a cart at Woodbine Golf Course in Homer Glen (up to a $122 value), valid for tee times on any day starting at 10 a.m.
Designed by PGA professional Gordon Cunningham, Woodbine Golf Course welcomes linkspeople with 6,020 yards of challenging tracts populated with fully watered bent-grass tees, greens, and fairways. Five ponds, numerous bunkers, natural-grass-preservation areas, and clusters of grabby-branched trees provide varying challenges for both low- and high-handicap golfers. Dot the green canvas with wayward white spheres and heartbreakingly close putts while easing wear and tear on steel-toed ballet slippers with a provided cart. After putting dimpled companions to bed, golfers can sneak quietly away to Woodbine's clubhouse, replete with flat-screen TVs, a long, wooden bar, and a stone fireplace, providing a perfect backdrop for tall tales about the mysterious caddie with a strong resemblance to Will Smith.
Woodbine Golf Course's rates vary throughout the week.

About Woodbine Golf Course
Designed in a country-club style by PGA professional Gordon Cunningham, Woodbine Golf Course welcomes linkspeople with 6,020 yards of challenging tracts populated with bentgrass tees, fairways, and greens. The layout’s five ponds, natural-grass preservation areas, and clusters of grabby-branched trees have beckoned both low- and high-handicap golfers for nearly a quarter of a century. A contorted fairway and aquatic hazard make the 14th hole the course’s hardest, and the 4th hole ranks second hardest with a tricky dogleg left whose elbow hosts a sand bunker that lures distractible golfers with a siren song of sandcastles.
After games, golfers can retreat to Woodbine's clubhouse. At the Timber Restaurant and Bar, flat-screen TVs flicker above a long wooden bar, diners feast on pasta and pot roast, and a stone fireplace provides the ideal backdrop for tales about 9-irons that transformed into 10-irons with hard work and a little gumption.
