Golf is a sport that takes immense concentration, a sense of confidence and great patience. So, it goes without saying that after a round of nine or 18 holes in the sun, players are likely to be worn out. Conveniently enough, many golf courses provide bars, lounges and hangouts for patrons to grab a beer and unwind after a day of hitting the links. Listed below are some places to keep in mind.
One Under Bar, 35780 Five Mile Rd., Livonia, is located in front of Idyl Wyld Golf Course—Livonia’s oldest course.
