Upbeat music channels players' adrenalin as they expertly navigate their way through the incandescent irrigation routes and prove to competitors that their putting skills, like the bottom of Lake Michigan and Celine Dion's hair, are untouchable. Both golfers are equipped with a glow bracelet that shines as brightly as the course's black-lit critters, ensuring that no visitors are hazed by glowing parakeets.

The intermittent whooshes of practice swings and the piercing din of a well-struck drive soundtrack guests' visits to Airport Driving Range, where golfers can prepare for their next day at the links. The range boasts ample space for players to unsheathe their driver, as well as grass hitting areas for those who prefer a natural feel and artificial hitting mats for golfers with a debilitating fear of earthworms. Golfers can hone their swings under sunny skies or during inclement weather, as Airport Driving Range is open rain or shine and many of its hitting mats are protected from the elements by a yellow canopy.
Originally sculpted into the rolling terrain of western New York in 1920, South Shore’s 18-hole course invites golfers of all stripes to conquer its pristine fairways. The grassy monolith stretches across 150 acres of scenic, parkland terrain, where players must shape their shots around babbling creeks, mature trees, and lakes where discontent golf balls live out fantasies of becoming submarines in search of Atlantis, the Utopian land responsible for the Arnold Palmer drink. A pro shop and clubhouse sit on the scenic hillsides, beckoning players with post-round beverages, upgraded golf accessories, and slice-prone spirits yelling “fore” at one another.
Bob-O-Link Golf Club right-sizes the game of golf for beginners, less experienced players, and those with slower swings so they can enjoy it alongside their more skilled counterparts. The golf course is comprised of 18 par-three holes, ranging from 100 to 155 yards in length. Players likely only need their higher-numbered irons for every shot, and many don't even bring along their drivers or golf-ball slingshots. The course is lit for night golf, as well, enabling golfers to finish rounds later. The game improvement possibilities continue to the 25-stall driving range and the practice putting green, where golfers can hone strokes until they're ready for a full-size course.
