Otte Golf and Family Fun Center is a perennial fixture in Golf Range Magazine’s list of the country’s Top 100 Golf Ranges. Its 300-yard driving range houses more than 50 stalls—guests can choose between grass and mat hitting surfaces—set under high-powered lights that keep the target greens illuminated at night. The range provides a venue for independent practice or preparation for rounds on the center's 18-hole executive course, a circuit of par-threes and fours that takes a convenient 2.5 hours to complete, which gives golfers more time to trick out the vintage golf carts in their garages.

A lighthouse stands sentry over the 18-hole miniature golf course, where guests advance through flowerbeds, willow trees, and tidy rows of shrubs and hedges. Those interested in striking balls that aren't placed on tees or the noses of their best friends can visit one of nine batting cages, where pitching machines dispense a steady stream of baseballs and softballs at various speeds.

In addition to small-scale fairway festivities, Orchard Golf Center hosts a snack bar and a pro shop stocked with golf apparel and accouterments.

Ponds come into play on eight different holes, including the signature 17th hole, a 147-yard par 3 that plays into a sloped green wreathed by a front-right pond and bunkers dug into the left and back sides.

Encompassing 5 acres of family-centric fun, Greatimes Family Fun Park's attractions provide safe jollity for children and adults. While most outdoor attractions—such as bumper boats and mini-golf—require agreeable weather, the center's 22,000-square-foot indoor play haven grants rain-or-shine merriment, as well as an arcade and prize-redemption games that include classic skee-ball. As pintsize family members ramble through the playland, three ball pits urge energetic jumping, and slides and tunnels add varying terrain to afternoon play. Pizzas and sub sandwiches from the play center's restaurant also supply noshes for family meals celebrating go-kart victories or the long-awaited engagement of Pac-Man to Ms. Pac-Man.
