Galaxy's somewhat predictably-themed, glow-in the-dark mini golf course beckons gamers of all ages and skill levels. Take on iridescent aliens, blazing rocket ships, and lazy, ball-blocking space stations for 18 holes of indoor fun. The glowing outer space hazards and moving obstacles make for challenging courses presenting dangers to wayward golf balls and wandering dark matter. Each ticket gets two avid gamers two full 18-hole rounds on the black-lit course, with the last hole awarding a prize to anyone making a hole-in-one. Mini-golfers with miniature mini-golfers can take advantage of children's tickets ($4) for a family fun night, day, or indeterminably-blacklit timeperiod.

The Golf Shop, an 18-year veteran of the Texas golf scene, sells and services golf gear and specializes in tailoring irons to its patrons’ swings. The process hinges on an in-house expert with more than two decades’ experience, who analyzes golfers’ styles before customizing the stiffness of a brand-name shaft selected specifically for them, from makers such as UST and Lamkin. When finished clubs arrive, the shop’s coach can help patrons convert their new irons into improved scores or makeshift shovels for burying spare house keys.

Alternatively, technicians can rehabilitate the clubs customers already own with re-shafting, re-gripping, and complete rebuilding services, all of which take three days at most to complete. After a run through the shop’s stock of new and lightly used gear, patrons can replace any obsolete gear, or pick up accessories such as tees, balls, and golf bags ideal for storing secret turf clod collections. :m]]

Tee 2 Green's two-level, PGA-recognized golf range summons swingers with stretches of practice fairway for swinging, putting, and chipping. Bask in basket Valhalla by skyrocketing 600 balls (12 baskets) into a vast stretch of green, punishing the dimpled spheres with well-executed swings that implement the forces of speed, velocity, and properly aimed physics textbooks. An 18-hole chipping and putting practice range rounds out focus from the long game to the particulars of short form. The lighted range allows golfers to swing past sunset, where they can imagine that the moon is a large golf flag, the stars are sand traps, and gravity is just a conspiracy perpetrated by the opponent. The monthly card at Tee 2 Green beguiles drivers with 100 balls a day, topping tees with around 3,000 opportunities for golfers to practice their swing.

Inside, buzzing sounds and whirring lights emanate from more than 50 arcade games, including skee-ball and air hockey, many of which reward success with tickets that can be redeemed for an assortment of fun prizes.

The Ghost and Goblin 5k Obstacle Run uses the very darkness of night as one of the obstacles. The event begins at 6:15 p.m., about 25 minutes after sunset. Runners don't compete in complete darkness, though. Blacklights cast their eerie glow across the course and runners' costumes. When registering for the race, competitors can ask for black light body paint, black light powder, or glow sticks to be added to their race packet for an extra spooky touch. The event also includes a costume contest, rewarding participants who think of the most creative costumes.
