A round of miniature golf on Ace’s tropical-themed course, complete with waterfalls, streams, ponds, and lush Floridian vegetation, fills afternoons with fairway fun for friends and family (children ages four to 10 are admitted for $4.99, and kids under four get free admission). PGA pros and sand-trap stragglers will enjoy the upscale practice range, with covered swinging areas to protect golfers from weather, as well as stadium lighting for nighttime play and elaborate Field of Dreams fantasies. For harder hitting, baseball batters and softball sluggers step into batting cages, where professional pitching machines can vary speeds from lightning-bolt throws to lackadaisical lobs.
Total Baseball Sports Academy curates a collective of experienced baseball and fast-pitch-softball coaches, along with manicured practice spaces. Teachers who were once involved with such organizations as the St. Louis Cardinals and Washington Nationals lend their knowledge to young players during summer camps, private lessons, and correspondence courses taught entirely through catcher hand signals. Teams can kick up the freshly raked dirt on rented practice fields or rattle the wire frame on batting cages.
