18-Hole Round of Golf for Two or Four with Cart Rental, Range Books, and Drinks at Garrison Golf Club (Up to 63% Off)

The putting surfaces of many old golf courses were actually made of packed-down sand, which explains why golfers once referred to greens as “browns” and putters as “Sarlacc beating sticks.” Avoid mythical sand monsters with this Groupon.

  • 18-hole round of golf for two including cart rental (up to a $90 value/person)

Garrison Golf Club

Designed by course architect Dick Wilson, Garrison Golf Club’s 18-hole course covers the tree-lined hills, valleys, and ravines of the Hudson Highlands as golfers drink in sweeping views from 800 feet above the Hudson River. Without disturbing the native birds and wildlife, the course artfully integrates the natural terrain into a challenging layout, featuring multiple shots that must clear deep chasms and rolling fairways that create tricky hill lies and test golf carts’ vulnerability to motion sickness. Stone walls and mature oaks and hemlocks add to the stately scenery as players grapple with testy hazards, such as those encountered at the par three 17th hole, where tee shots must find a putting surface buttressed by sprawling trees, sand traps, and a stream.

An Audubon International–certified course, Garrison Golf Club’s environmentally friendly efforts include a 2-acre organic farm that sprouts heirloom tomatoes, nine kinds of lettuce, and other greens incorporated into dishes at Valley and Terrace Grill, the club’s onsite restaurants. Guests may also opt to wind down at World’s End Bar, a cozy spot ideal for sipping cocktails or interrogating fellow players about the veracity of their scorecards.

18-Hole Round of Golf for Two or Four with Cart Rental at The Club at Silver Lake in Perry (Up to 57% Off)

Golf is one of the few sports in which players can compete against themselves, along with paddleball and seeing how many potatoes they can eat. Put yourself to the test with this Groupon.

Choose Between Two Options

  • $34 for an 18-hole round of golf for two with cart rental (a $68 value)
  • $59 for an 18-hole round of golf for four with cart rental (a $136 value)

The Club at Silver Lake

Stretched out along the western banks of Silver Lake, a gauntlet of bent-grass fairways leads players along a path that presents challenging play and picturesque views of the water. Though play never wanders close enough to Silver Lake proper to render it a hazard, multiple ponds enter play on several holes. The course adds additional challenges with undulating terrain, tall evergreens that line the fairways, and strategically placed sand traps that double as tanning beaches for displaced tourists.

Adjacent to the course, golfers can find respite at The Club restaurant, which offers a menu of classic American dishes to be enjoyed in a dining room with views of Silver Lake.

Course at a Glance:

  • 18-hole, par 70 course
  • Total length of 6,012 yards from the back tees
  • Course rating of 69 from the back tees
  • Course slope of 122 from the back tees

18-Hole Round of Golf with Cart on a Weekday or on a Weekend or Holiday at Meadows Golf Club in Lincoln Park (51% Off)

Playing a round of golf is a contest between man and nature, much like betting a tree it can’t drink a gallon of milk. Pit yourself against the elements with this Groupon.

Choose Between Two Options

  • $25 for an 18-hole round of golf with cart on a weekday (a $51 value)
  • $32 for an 18-hole round of golf with cart on a weekend or holiday (a $65 value)

Meadows Golf Club

The pristine, recently renovated fairways at Meadows Golf Club snake around 12 ponds that vary in size and factor into play-making decisions on at least 14 holes. Water makes itself a prevalent threat to golf balls that are afraid to swim on the 9th and 18th holes, where larger ponds loom ominously to finish out the front and back nines. The 9th, a 240-yard uphill par 3, demands steely nerved shots over two ponds: one that stretches past the tee box to the player’s center-right and another that runs along the left all the way to the green. On the par 4 18th, players again face down a tee shot over water, this time being forced to keep their drive to the right to avoid water along the length of the fairway, as well as packs of ravenous ball washers that roam the course in search of prey.

Course at a Glance:

  • 18-hole, par 70 course
  • 6,345 yards from the back tees
  • Three sets of tees

Rick Nielsen Golf

A Class-A PGA professional with more than 25 years of experience, Rick Nielsen applies his time-earned expertise to help golfers shave strokes during lessons at Randalls Island Golf Center, where he’s been the head pro since 1998. Rick employs the latest technologies to aid in instruction, including The Golfing Machine system⎯which takes a geometric approach to swing mechanics⎯as well as digital-video analysis and FlightScope 3-D doppler radar launch monitor. These sensitive instruments measure each shot on a number of parameters, from club-head speed and launch angle to total distance and nougat ratio of the ball’s core. Meanwhile, Rick observes and isolates specific areas in need of improvement so that players can develop muscle memory and consistently repeat a successful swing motion. Ultimately, with Rick’s pointers, players leave lessons equipped with the tools to reach their full potential on the course without temptation to modify their 9-iron into a bedazzled baton.

Silver Lake Golf Course

Lakeside breezes drift through dense tree lines and across the serpentine fairways of Silver Lake Golf Course’s 18-hole, 6,238-yard layout. Hemmed by mature arbors, the course’s narrow, unforgiving fairways prevent players from aggressively attacking its relatively short holes, encouraging golfers to doff their drivers or modified T-shirt cannons in favor of shorter clubs. Cresting hills give way to scenic views peppered throughout the course, where clubbers can pause to breathe in the fragrant scent of dew-covered grasses or look out onto the rippling waters of Silver Lake, which hugs the sides of multiple fairways. After an afternoon of tireless pin hunting, linksfolk can retire to the outdoor patio or indoor fireside seating of The Veranda Cafe to enjoy an icy beverage and scintillating games of spin-the-divot-tool.

Course at a Glance:

  • 18-hole, par 70–72 course
  • Length of 6,238 yards from farthest tees
  • Course rating of 69.6 from farthest tees

$99 for a One-Night Stay at Sea Trail Golf Resort & Convention Center in Sunset Beach, NC (Up to $199 Value)

Villas on 2,000-Acre Resort with Three Championship Golf Courses

The first challenge is deciding which course to play on: Sea Trail Golf Resort & Convention Center has three championship courses, a total of 54 scenic holes that were individually designed by award-winning architects Dan Maples, Rees Jones, and Willard Byrd. After that, the challenges lie in water hazards such as native low-country marshes, which swallow up errant drives between the Maples course and Calabash Creek. The Byrd course’s 18th hole is tucked between two tranquil ponds. Meanwhile, the resort itself brings to mind an exotic paradise with its breezy villas, tropical landscapes, and easy access to Sunset Beach.

White wicker furniture, natural-wood accents, and exotic plants deck out the privately owned one-bedroom villas, each of which have been personally decorated. After a round of golf, you can head here to fix up a snack in the full kitchen or relax on the private porch, which looks to the rolling acres. Guests can extend the relaxation further and imagine life as a sea monster with a detoxifying seaweed mask at Sea Trail’s day spa.

Magnolia’s Lounge often lays out weekly brunch buffets centered on southern cuisine, serving buttermilk biscuits with sawmill gravy and farm-fresh eggs. In the Maples course clubhouse is Brassie’s Pub, where golfers stop for a quick drink before they venture back onto the greens.

Sunset Beach, North Carolina: Tranquil Barrier Island Near Myrtle Beach

A 3-mile long barrier island, Sunset Beach is situated close to North Carolina’s coastal Brunswick Islands and just 15 minutes north of Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. Tourists head to the water for fishing, parasailing, and dolphin watching.

Nearby is Bird Island, a natural preserve that is virtually unspoiled and quiet—a luxurious retirement community of sorts for reddish egrets, blue heron, and sandpipers. In Bird Island’s Kindred Spirit mailbox, visitors traditionally leave touching letters, poems, and bill payments tendered in sand dollars.

The pace picks up at the Myrtle Beach boardwalk, located about a 15-minute drive south. It’s a popular destination for families; a highlight is its Ferris wheel, which flickers with more than 1 million LED lights.

What You Get

  • $99 for a one-night stay for up to four in a resort, deluxe, or premier one-bedroom villa

  • Three golf courses

$995 per Twosome for a Graeme McDowell Mini Golf Tournament Outing with a Putting Clinic and Irish-Themed Refreshments in New York City

The long putt is one of golf’s most difficult shots, alongside driving into the wind and banking a chip shot off a spinning windmill. Learn to master the green with today’s Groupon: for $995, you get a celebrity golf outing for two to the Graeme McDowell Mini Golf Tournament at the Openhouse Gallery in New York City. A partnership with Groupon to raise awareness for McDowell’s G-Mac Foundation, the event takes place Wednesday, February 15, from 3:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. The experience includes the following for each participant:

  • A meet-and-greet with Graeme McDowell
  • A 20-minute putting clinic with McDowell
  • Entry into the mini-golf tournament
  • Irish-themed refreshments
  • A photo opportunity with McDowell
  • Invitations for winning pair to attend The Children’s Medical & Research Foundation’s charity dinner that night

When professional golfer Graeme McDowell won the U.S. Open in 2010, he became the first European in 40 years and the first Irishman in history to hoist the championship’s trophy. Before teeing off in the Graeme McDowell Mini Golf Tournament, 72 contenders glean tips from McDowell himself on reading greens, pacing ground strokes, tweeting, and fist pumping without hurting the shoulder. After the 20-minute putting clinic, the tournament tests newfound knowledge while CNN International’s Shane O’Donoghue emcees. Competitors who sport knickers or plaid pants earn an extra mulligan during play, and bagpipe tunes pervade the air to imbue the match with festive Irish flair. While mingling and refueling, golfers also sample the flavors of the Emerald Isle with themed refreshments. All guests receive either a photo opportunity with McDowell or a sip of Fanta from his U.S. Open trophy.

The duo with the lowest combined score at the tournament’s end continues with Graeme McDowell into the evening hours, receiving invitations to attend The Children’s Medical & Research Foundation’s charity dinner, which begins with a general reception at the New York Athletic Club at 7 p.m. Donning a choice of business attire or their finest fencing outfits, the champion two will take their seats at a table reserved by Groupon and tuck into a gourmet meal at 8 p.m. alongside the event’s other guests. Proceeds from the dinner will support the work of Ireland’s leading pediatric research institution, The National Children’s Research Centre based at Our Lady Children’s Hospital, Crumlin in Dublin.
