    Buddy of mine lives outside San Francisco. Said he saw a Groupon offer worth 73 percent off a round at Pebble Beach. I know Pebble Beach is pricey ($500 plus?) but 73 percent is an outrageously good deal. I think I'd buy a couple if I were out there. (And yes, I've heard the horror stories about long rounds. It's Pebble Beach!)

    Not quite Pebble Beach Golf Course. It's Poppy Hills Golf Course in Pebble Beach, Calif. It's still used to be part of the National Pro-Am.

    Nah, not anymore. Poppy Hills was removed a couple of years ago and nobody was sad to see it go. Definitely the weak sister on the peninsula, and that price isn't out of the ordinary at all for off-season dates.

    Uh, Pebble Beach won't need any Groupons anytime soon, even with a $500 rack rate.

    And the fine print on that Poppy Hills deal said cart not included. That can be a sneaky way to add as much as $30.

    I thought that sounded a little too good to be true.

    What? High-handicapped golfers finally stopped buying this crap?
