Perched on the bank of Lake Travis, Daybreak Miniature Golf Park blends 18 confoundingly contoured holes with scenic views and cool breezes off the water. Friends and families unsheathe putters and embark on pintsize rounds, knocking kaleidoscopic spheres over banks and swales and rolling past hole-in-one hindrances such as stones and ethereal psychological sand traps. The challenging course speckles water hazards and worrisome warbles along an array of par 2 and par 3 holes. Youngsters have fun clobbering balls along the imaginatively molded, brightly hued greens, while more experienced golfsmiths can challenge themselves to ace the park's lengthy 50-foot putt. Open as late at 10 p.m. on Friday and Saturday evenings, the park's overhead lights team up with the moon and lighter-wielding constellations to illuminate the beautifully landscaped, flower-filled course.
Rockhopper’s is a play park packed with plenty of indoor and outdoor attractions. One habitually unhappy person can be amply filled with merriment, thanks to unlimited access to the center's 18 mini golf greens, which weave through waterfalls, scenic landscapes, and slippery wormholes. Visitors also get two hours to enjoy Rockhopper's game room, which features classic arcade machines, pinball, air hockey, and more; two games of bite-size bowling (one game on lanes 1 or 2 and 1 game on lanes 3 or 4) are also included as part of the two-hour game play.
The soft jingling of wind chimes rolls across Magic Greens’s 2.5-acre facility, creating a tranquil space as clients lope across a miniature-golf course lined with handcrafted cedar structures, towering oaks, and native wildflowers. Owners Carole and James George added the serene touches to capitalize on the surrounding area's natural landscape, developing a scenic course that eschews the plastic statuettes and gimmicks of typical mini-golf courses in favor of a more authentic, clown-proof space. Alongside the challenging course rest four bocce-ball courts, ample space for casual washers games, vine-covered gazebos, two waterfalls, and a cedar pavilion where guests can enjoy food and nougaty-center golf balls from the concession-stand menu.
Quail Creek Golf Club’s 18-hole course invites golfers to enjoy the countryside charm of its rolling terrain as they swing their way past native tall grasses. A well-oiled short game pays dividends on this course due to the nature of the turtle back greens. The signature seventh hole offers a view of a large canyon that sits adjacent to the Blanco River, and the twelfth hole runs alongside the river itself. The same oblong pond stands in front of the greens at the adjacent ninth and 18th holes, providing a dramatic finish to both nines, as well as an opportunity for golfers to sacrifice their sand wedges to the water in a post-round gesture of respect for the course. The grounds include a driving range, and a Back Porch Bar & Grill where players can enjoy a frosty beverage, beer or burger, which can be ordered in advance so it is ready on the turn.
After rounds, players can drop by the Back Porch Bar & Bistro for a frosty beverage, beer or burger, which can be ordered in advance so it is ready on the turn.
Course at a Glance:
At Paradise Fun Center, the gurgling waterfalls in two 18-hole mini-golf courses and the rustling of trees in the breeze provide the soundtrack for pleasant, family-friendly outings. Each course is riddled with zigzags, sharp turns, and challenges that don't rely on advanced levitation abilities. Batting cages accommodate fast- and slow-pitch practice, and go-kart racing quenches needs for speed, and a variety of arcade games are available. In between the fun and games, the center keeps energy levels elevated with candy, pizza, nachos, and ice cream at its snack bar, and a picnic area and party room are available for group outings.
Rolling Oaks Golf Club pairs an expansive driving range with an outdoor patio and banquet space that welcomes guests with food, drink, and live music. Outfitted with numerous hitting bays and stadium lights, the range lets golfers spruce up swings day or night, regardless of the sun’s busy schedule or the moon’s refusal to pay its electric bill. The driving range also hosts golf clinics and lessons for players in need of advice from golf experts. After dialing in drives and fine-tuning chip shots, players can kick back in the club’s dining room to feast on burgers, cheesesteaks, and other traditional grill fare as regular live music and guitar solos express the woe of a missed birdie shot in ways words never can.
