If you think viewing the world through rose-coloured glasses makes it look like a better place, you should try viewing it through green ones. Start off by casting your eyes on this WagJag at Whispering Pines Golf & Country Club Resort, where for $99 you get 18 holes of golf for a foursome, including two power carts, four buckets of range balls and a $20 dining voucher (a $282 value). This deal is valid Monday to Thursday only. You also have the option of using your voucher to play as a twosome on two separate visits instead of as a foursome on one visit.
Highlights of the CourseNot just your typical prarie-esque Alberta setting, Whispering Pines is 6,041 yards of hillside terrain flanked by mature evergreens, native grasses and daunting water hazards. The Pine Lake-side course is designed by Alberta's own Judd Towns and is part of the four-season fun at Whispering Pines family resort. Tips for Success on the GreensHole 18, featuring a signature island green, offers the perfect way to close your game. Whispering Pines advises a straight tee shot is essential, as one to the right or left almost always means a bogey or more. Distance is the most important component of your second shot - go too long or too short and you're wet. Once on the floating green, line and speed are the most important factors if you hope to score a birdie.Course Comforts Find all the golf gear you need at a fully-stocked pro shop, and the instruction to help you play better with a private or group lesson. Use your two-to-four buckets of balls at the driving range by hole 1. To Please the Golfer's PalateThe signature dish here is an juicy all-beef burger - try it topped with barbecued bacon and cheddar cheese or infused with Jack Daniel's. The clubhouse restaurant also does all you can eat pasta and sizzling wok nights. See the menu.
