Mulligans Golf and Games entices golfers to grab their clubs and pole-vault into the universe of gentlemanly sportsmanship across two nine-hole golf courses. Golfers can steadily slice their way through The Meadow's nine par-3 holes, or line up their swings to conquer on The Ridge's tricky combination of par-3, par-4, and par-5 holes. Both courses present unique challenges for players of all skill levels, tucking water hazards into verdant greens and commissioning tennis players to play defense. Those who prefer putters can traverse the bubbling lagoons of two immaculately landscaped mini golf courses.
Mulligan Golf and Games' driving range, open day and night, unfurls 33 covered hitting areas so golfers can practice their strokes and acquire the accuracy to peg their neighbors' rooftop satellite dishes. During golf lessons, Jeff Wathen and other PGA golf professionals analyze swings and approaches using years of experience as well as the latest in video and computer teaching aids. Baseball and softball players can also club white orbs into the sky from eight slow- and fast-pitch batting cages.
Thrill seekers and people looking to be moderately entertained can take the four arcade tokens and also choose any combination of the activities Trafalga has to offer. Aspiring kings and queens of the home-run derby can get 50 swats at the batting cages, and golf-ball haters can punish an orb throughout 18 brutal holes of mini-golf. Trafalga has two courses, one under the stars on the late-night cosmic golf course and the other beneath the glowing waves on the indoor undersea jungle black-light course. A round of five minutes or 25 laps on the go-karts will satisfy speed demons more than 60 inches tall, but shorter adrenaline junkies will have to ride shotgun and have it administered by a taller chaperone. Trafalga has four different XD theater rides to choose from, taking participants through four-dimensional experiences in outer space, under the sea, in the tunnels of a haunted mine, or on the kids' favorite urban flight alongside some jetpack-sporting companions. You can also trade one activity in for 25 tokens to bolster the four free ones and spend some time with the classic arcade machines such as skeeball. Take your adopted family of loving chimpanzees for a day of entertainment at Trafalga Fun Center and enjoy the simple pleasure that beating a relative at skeeball or hitting 50 home runs in a row in front of your date can afford.
Given the sprawling, mountain-backed grounds of the Soldier Hollow Golf Club, it's no surprise that the onsite, eponymous grill is a popular setting for weddings, holiday parties, and other special events. But you don't need an occasion to justify stopping in for one of the restaurant's 11 signature burgers?including veggie, pastrami, and bacon options?and hand-cut fries. Here, halibut is battered and deep-fried to compose fish and chips, and grilled sourdough bread surrounds the layers of a classic Swiss reuben.
The 18-hole course at TalonsCove Golf Club hugs the northwest rim of Utah Lake, leading golfers on a shamrock-shaded jaunt backdropped by the craggy skyline formed by the Timpanogos Mountain. Architect Gene Bates designed the course in a links-style format, the ancient design scheme that features numerous deep bunkers, frustratingly high rough, and few trees bent on blocking flight paths and asking for group pictures right before an important shot.
Course at a Glance:
A veritable cornucopia of hands-on family entertainment, Planet Play buzzes with laser tag, bumper cars, and more than 100 video games sprawled throughout its 55,000 square feet of indoor space. Miniature-golf decorations illuminate putts under the gleam of a black light, and gamers bask in the electronic glow of pinball machines, skee-ball, or Guitar Hero in the game room. Instead of lugging around giant piles of tickets or paying exorbitant fees to deposit them in an older sibling's pocket bank, gamers can easily cash in their winnings using an e-ticket Play Card. After working up an appetite on go-kart track or the mini bowling lanes, visitors can belly up to a buffet that brims with hand-tossed pizzas, a fresh salad bar, and decadent desserts.
Seven Peaks' multiple locales thrill guests with attractions ranging from water slides to go-karts and bowling. At Seven Peaks Waterpark Provo, the aquatically inclined can cascade down water slides, seesaw around the mammoth half-pipe tube ride, or ride the crests of the 400,000-gallon wave pool. Guests can scan the attractions at Seven Peaks Waterpark Salt Lake City, such as unique water slides and the Amazon River, then plummet off the Cliffhanger, a curvy slide that ends with a sudden 5-foot drop into a pool. The Lehi and Orem locations house an assortment of waterless excursions, including mini golf, go-karts, batting cages, and laser tag.
The Utah Pass of All Passes lets guests use the Fun Centers? bowling lanes to show off elite bowling skills developed from years of rolling watermelons into doghouses. Pass holders also receive perks such as access to skating at Peaks Ice Arena, admission to events at Rocky Mountain Raceways, and admission to baseball and soccer games.
