Just removed from the eastern banks of the Schuykill River lie the 18 holes of Linfield National Golf Course, a hybrid layout that incorporates elements of both links and parkland course design. True to the links code, deep bunkers cluster astride the fairways and around the putting surfaces, ensnaring the wayward golf balls of golfers who fail to offer up course praise via messages scrawled in their sandy entrails. Meanwhile, thick tree groves and lakes on eight holes extend the intimidation factor, hemming in the playable areas and spelling doleful consequences for unchecked power. Having putted out on the 18th green, golfers can retire to the outdoor dining area at Mulligan?s Bar & Grille, where views of the first and 18th holes hover over beer glasses and tasty grille fare.
Course at a Glance:
* 18-hole, par 71 course
* Total length of 6,365 yards from the back tees
* Course rating of 69.8 from the back tees
* Course slope of 123 from the back tees

GO USA Fun Park enthralls visiting families with abundant racing, gaming, and putting attractions strewn throughout its indoor and outdoor facility. A fleet of 20 go-karts stands ready to hug the turns and gun down the straightaways of a nearly quarter-mile-long track. A fully lit 18-hole mini golf course challenges werewolves building immunity to silver putters, and 30 golf tees equipped with coverings for rainy days or cold weather allow for skill-building practice shots. Batting cages enhance swinging skills with hard- or softballs approaching helmeted craniums at slow, medium, or lightning-fast speeds. The indoor arcade brims with an array of video and redemption games, with nifty prizes awaiting homes behind an overflowing counter.
The ping of golf clubs and baseball bats rings out across the grounds and rises above the thrumming engines and squealing tires of go-karts at Golfland USA. Part training ground, part recreational respite, Golfland invites golfers to hone their game at a driving range or enjoy more laid-back par-hunting at a mini-golf course. Guests can also perfect a different kind of swing at the batting cages, which sling baseballs at three different speeds and offer two slow-pitch softball machines. The fun center also encompasses a quarter-mile go-kart track where drivers speed down straightaways and drift around tight turns. In addition, Golfland also offers a weekend bouncy house, a giant slide, and bungee trampolines for guests to enjoy.
