Whether sinking a putt or demolishing a high score, Walther's Golf & Fun surrounds visitors with the trappings of the tropics. On the dual miniature golf courses, one indoor and one outdoor, waterfalls and banana trees give the feel of golfing through a vibrant jungle. The laser-tag course is similarly themed, with tangles of neon lights washing over palm trees and weathered ruins. Jungle-print carpet coats the floor of the fully stocked arcade, and golfers practicing on the driving range wait impatiently for one droopy toucan to collect and return their golf balls.
Golf balls soar through the air and settle around various targets at Big Bend Golf Center, providing a steady soundtrack of thwacks as golfers practice their golf game. The center’s double-decker driving range boasts more than 25 hitting stations—including both grass and synthetic hitting mats—from which golfers can take aim at yardage markers that are boldly labeled with their distance from the tees. Covered by the top deck and warmed with outdoor heaters, the ground-level hitting bays let golfers practice their game year-round in any weather, rather than attempting to play with clubs made of icicles. Big Bend’s Golf Center complements the driving range with clinics and lessons with resident golf pros, who also provide re-gripping services and spike replacements for aging golf shoes.
A percussive rhythm of impact rings through the air at North County Golf & Sports Center, whether its the smack of golf balls leaving grass and mat tees or the crack of baseball bats inside batting cage balls. Golfers of all ability levels enjoy use of covered, heated tees in inclement weather and can work on their short game skills on a large putting green. Throughout the spring, summer, and fall, players can join in on instructional clinics held seven days a week, wherein they work on basic and advanced facets of their game including grip, stance, and alignment. If stationary targets don't present enough of a challenge, players can head over to the batting cages to practice transforming pitches into line drives, grounders, and nacho-ruining foul balls.
