Designed by renowned course architect Geoffrey Cornish, Center Valley Club's verdant pastures embrace two distinct nine-hole terrains. The Scottish-links-style front nine incorporates hidden mounds, lakes, and undulating greens ideal for concealing surplus goose eggs. Duffers then march toward the championship-style back nine, populated by woodland, lakes, and sand traps masquerading as restful turf-side beaches. Golfers can also practice on Center Valley's Club's driving range before embarking on orb-pummeling odysseys, choosing from five levels of yardage based on skill level and distance covered by “fore” yodels.

With a 39-stall driving range, a miniature-golf circuit, and a nine-hole par 3 course, Mt. Freedom Golf helps golfers fine-tune every aspect of their game. That par 3 layout features several holes that span at least 100 yards from the tee to the bentgrass greens, showcasing a verdant expanse for players to work their short irons. Players bogey-proof swings at the driving range, where natural-grass hitting areas cater to those who favor a natural feel and provoke artificial mats to crow about how photosynthesis is overrated.
After grappling the yips at the safari-themed mini-golf course, players can seek out putter advice from one three ace instructors. Mt. Freedom Golf also offers a nine-hole Frisbee-golf course that favors those with disc-hurling prowess or enough money to hire a pizza chef as a caddy.
A two-tiered driving range and two 18-hole miniature-golf courses welcome visitors to Branchburg Family Golf Center’s 27-acre golf complex for game improvement and friendly competition. Each tier at the range comprises more than 30 hitting stalls and features a natural-grass tee area that remains open from April through September. In colder months, 12 recently installed heaters keep golfers cozy or help them sweat off pounds to drop a weight class in golf-cart jousting. Professional instructors roll in when players reach an improvement plateau, offering their keen expertise to develop consistent swings that lead to lower scores.
The center’s two miniature-golf courses summon putts past crashing waterfalls and through lush landscapes, fostering a sense of friendly competition in a pint-sized oasis. When swatting stationary spheres becomes too easy, visitors can head over to the batting facility to work on baseball swings and tackle techniques when charging the mound at a cyborg pitcher.:m]]
Storied naturalist John James Audubon visited the Pocono Mountains in 1829 to document the lush upper Lehigh River area, which is populated by bluebirds and woodpeckers. Today, there's an added chirping to these woodlands of northeastern Pennsylvania: the slot machines at the AAA Four Diamond Mount Airy Casino Resort. The casino is tucked away into the brush, located about a two-hour drive from New York City and Philadelphia. It's possible to watch cards and chips trade hands on the 65,000-square-foot gaming floor and then go for a relaxing hike amid the quiet forests and cabins of the Poconos area.Table games such as blackjack, poker, and roulette make up the casino, just one of the many places to stay entertained in the palatial hotel complex. Comedians and musicians regularly make up the entertainment calendar at Gypsies Lounge and Nightclub, where a house DJ spins records over a 10,000-watt sound system in the late hours.Five different restaurants are on hand and satisfy a wide variety of appetites and budgets. Le Sorelle Cucina has a romantic vibe, a cozy Italian bistro that serves up classic dishes such as sicilian baked oysters and fillet alla gorgonzola. Betty's Diner, meanwhile, has the feel of old-fashioned America, as its dining room comes decked out in 1950s memorabilia and all of its delicious malts are eligible for political office. As the night winds down, you can retire to the comfort of the deluxe king or double-queen rooms, which feature pillow-top beds clad in goose-down duvets. Pocono—which translates to "stream between two mountains"—is speckled with hidden lakes and waterfalls. The Delaware State Forest features the Thunder Swamp Trail System, which meanders from lakefronts to mountain crests amid challenging, rocky terrain. Brook trout swim in the mountain streams, while deer, rabbits, and coyotes stalk through nearby groves in search of their cartoon counterparts. As the weather grows warmer, one of the best ways to take in the scenery is by portaging a canoe or kayak through the lowland bogs.About 40 minutes north, the town of Scranton is a living relic of the industrial revolution. Working steam engines puff away at the Steamtown National Historic Site. Starting in April, the Lackawanna Coal Mine will open up for visitors, who can descend 300 feet down into the 1860-era coal-mining shaft.Read the Fine Print for important info on travel dates and other restrictions.If you or someone you know has a gambling problem, help is available.

Helmed by 23-year PGA vet Scot W.R. Nei, TourBound Golf Academy hones the skills of golfers of all levels with a blend of professional training and high-tech analysis. In addition to learning from extensively experienced human trainers, students study under the cold, metal gaze of a training robot, which mercifully sets its kill-phasers to the "teach" setting as it offers up exact movement measurements and mechanically guided golf-swing practice. An indoor and outdoor facility hosts lessons in all weather, and TrackMan ball-flight trackers and digital-video scrutiny pinpoint improper postures and map out spheroid trajectories with computerized precision.
Mulligan's Family Golf Center beckons to birdie-hunters with a scaled-down golf course, an 18-hole mini-golf circuit, and a full-length driving range. With its longest hole measuring in at 108 yards, the center's 9-hole Chip-n-Putt course fosters short-game refinement, as players send balls somersaulting onto small greens from artificial tees or out of one of the layout's three sand traps. Mulligan's graciously rents out golf balls (a $0.50 deposit each, refunded when balls are returned) for use on the course, saving players the hassle of buying their own sleeve or chiseling a bocce ball down to the right size.
For more pressure-free swing practice, Mulligan's 30-stall driving range lets clubbers dial in their wedges, irons, woods, and mannequin legs with five signs demarcating yardages all the way back to the 250-yard terminus. The center also encompasses an 18-hole mini-golf course, where putt-putt posses crouch to demystify tricky breaking putts while the burbling sounds of waterfalls, fountains, and streams set a tranquil tone.
