Like its Scottish brethren whiskey, golf improves with age and can drive even the sanest of men to write heartfelt poetry that no one will ever read. Gather inspiration for your forthcoming sequel to Ballad of the Bogey with todays Groupon: for $200, you get a two-night stay and an $80 credit at Mount Mitchell Golf Resort in Burnsville (a $480 value).
Located in the luscious Toe River Valley, Mount Mitchell invites guests to alternate the pleasures of Mother Nature with the comforts of a two-bedroom vacation unit. Dotted with a delicate balance of bent-grass tees, lush greens, and pristine fairways, the player-friendly golf course received a near-perfect 4.5-star rating from Golf Digest. Dedicated ball whackers can use their $80 of credit toward a full day of fairway frolicking ($45/player MondayThursday, $65/player FridaySunday), and anglers can apply their credit toward a fishing permit for the South Toe River, which runs through the course. Those in search of local flavor can saunter through downtown Burnsvilles eclectic array of shops, which offer locally crafted glassware, pottery, and ceramic caddies.
With a temperate climate from April to November, Mount Mitchell offers cool respite from the citys stifling summer heat. Guests can wind down in the clubhouse over a gourmet meal or crisp beer from Hawtrees Pub and replace clubs lost to angry fits of rage in the pro shop. Many vacation units have excellent views of nearby Mount Mitchell, locally famous for its hiking trails and cliff-dwelling goblins that feed off stray golf balls.
