Designed by prolific golf-course architect Edmund Ault, Mill Quarter Plantation Golf Course nestles a par 72 championship course into the rolling Virginia hills, fitting 18 holes between lofty pines and restful meadows. Golf carts zoom over the slopes to a par 5 hole next to Fighting Creek, then ramp over hills to Hole 4, which guards its putting green with a sand bunker and a three-headed, fire-breathing german shepherd. The long stretch of grass at Hole 10 rewards long iron players, and the sneaky dogleg of Hole 14 curves strongly to the right, with a sand pit in the crook of its elbow and an audience of trees on either side.
Editor's Choice for the Best Public Golf Course in Richmond Good Life magazine, the Sycamore Creek Golf Course hosts one of the largest driving ranges in the area, ideal for learning the basics of swinging a driver or teeing off with a putter. Since credit for the 20 buckets can be used over multiple visits, fledging Jack Nicklauses can drop by Sycamore Creek after work, practice their power drive before taking the course, or stop in during lunch to launch a few shots toward the sun. Club swingers can visit the pro shop and snack bar to stock up on golf essentials, including visors, sandwiches, and more (not included with this Groupon).
Situated on 22 acres of land just west of Short Pump, Bogey's maintains an all-star roster of activities that has hosted fun outings since 1994. The facility's driving range, for starters, features 39 tee stations. Golfers can utilize every club in their bag while peppering targets that stretch from 25 yards to 250 yards. For short-game practice, the miniature golf course challenges putters with doglegs, water hazards, and other traps, and away from the greens, batting cage stations ping with pummeled balls as hitters take their hacks. Amid all this action, Bogey's makes sure to keep its guests fueled: the facility also boasts a snack bar and a pair of picnic areas.
Patterson Golf and Sports Park is an outdoor playground embellished by miniature-golf courses, open-aired batting cages, and acres of hittable playing surface at the driving range. Putters can outwit the linear instincts of their opponents on the green miniature-golf stretches, adorned with fun-house hurdles such as wooden bumpers, moving obstacles, life-size animal statues, and automaton golf balls ($5.50/game). Open-aired batting cages ($3/25 pitches) beg sluggers to blast 35-, 45-, or 55-mile-per-hour pitched balls into an open field dotted with targets to distinguish home runs from sacrifice bunts. Decorated with grass and matted tee stations, the fully lit driving range outstretches in acres of grassy pastures, inviting golfers to whack Top-Flite Tour Range balls toward 10 target areas ($9.50/bucket). Fairway buffs curious to measure their driving mettle can swing their clubs from one of the 25 matted tee stations equipped with distance lasers aimed at targets.
Two distinct nine-hole golf courses encircle a go-kart track, batting cages, 36 holes of miniature golf, and a 65-stall driving range at Windy Hill Sports Complex's mini metropolis of family fun. Pin-hunting posses can launch tee shots around dogleg fairways and carry approaches over water hazards at the Lake Course—which features two par 5s—or catch an abridged nine at the par 3 layout, which is lighted to facilitate late-night play without unveiling incendiary prototypes of plutonium golf balls. Foot Golf a combination of Soccer and Golf on the Par 3 Course is also available. Set on the edge of the highest point in Chesterfield County, the driving range helps players to hone their swings with 250 yards of target-peppered terrain, and the mini-golf course affords guests pressure-free practice on their putting stroke. Honda go-karts zip around the complex's quarter-mile go-kart track, where junior- and adult-size conveyances run in separate heats, and two-seater vehicles accommodate adult-child or child-gnome tandems. Across the grounds, sharp line drives resonate from the batting cages, where batsmen swing at orbs slung from mechanical hurlers at anywhere from 25 mph to 85 mph.
