The downtown lounge and golfery boasts six high-def golf simulators—massive windows that transport you into the scenic world of one of 16 top golf courses—along with a full menu of spectator fare in a fun and casual environment. During your retreat from the unmanicured greens of the everyday, you and your three closest friends or parolees will get four hours to play 18-hole golf on one of the course simulators; choose to use the lounge’s provided clubs, or bring your own for optimal swinging success (up to an $86 value). Shoot a fake round among the dramatic beauty of Pebble Beach or the lush tropical sights of Miami’s Blue Monster. When your ball touches the screen, the simulator picks it up and carries it to the exact locale on the virtual course—based on your sphere’s speed, height, and velocity—allowing you to show off, swagger, or cower in shame at your real-life abilities on the simulated greens.
The soft pop of clubs connecting with golf balls drifts across The Range?s three locations. From heated, covered tee areas at the Boston Heights outpost, the spheres soar across bottle-green expanses towards laser-measured targets. Valley View?s 80 hitting stations provide ample room for mobs taking a break from chasing unnatural creations of science, and a mini-golf course sharpens putting skills. The outfit replaces the entire fleet of range balls each year, so golfers rarely tee up a misshapen sphere. Lights shine from above to allow nighttime repetitions, and bunkers and practice greens enable focused work on the short game. At a pro shop, steely bouquets of clubs from Callaway and Top Flite stand in corners, overseen by trainers and staff members.

There are parkland golf courses, and then there are golf courses set within the US National Parks System. The 18-hole layout at Astorhurst Country Club abuts Tinkers Creek in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park, where it immerses golfers in picturesque surroundings while challenging them to hit their way over elevation changes, think through strategic quandaries, and ignore cloud formations just begging to be interpreted. At 6,138 yards, the course doesn't overwhelm anyone with extreme length, relying instead upon challenges to shot-shaping, control, and discipline that keep the course accessible to every level of golfer.
