After its cameo in the 1998 movie There’s Something About Mary, The Aqua Golf Driving Range became famous, summoning visitors to hit golf balls into aqueous landing areas. Before the movie, however, the 20-acre lake turned state-of-the-art golf facility was a local legend for more than 50 years. Under a long, doublewide canopy or in the sunshine, golfers try to hit golf balls onto floating greens or buoyant caddies, and can employ the expertise of onsite golf pros to hone their skills during lessons. The range also has a pro shop and synthetic short-game center on dry land to practice chipping, putting, and taking off the golf-bag scuba tank needed for second shots at the range.
Your night starts at 9 p.m. at the renowned D. Rodriguez Cuba restaurant, where your Cuban cuisine and vodka drinks will be prepaid for pre-partying. Each person gets to choose two tapas or one appetizer plus one entree from the special menu while enjoying a two-hour open bar for vodka drinks (such as martinis and cosmopolitans)—which is ample time to form a liquid nucleolus that will anchor the rest of the evening in a wave-like orbital whose position and momentum can never be simultaneously known. While you sip, pad your stomach with a delicious lining. Start with your two tasty tapas or appetizer, such as plaintain-crusted mahi mahi, ham croquetas, or a crunchy Cuban salad. For the main course, pick one of three entrees: arroz con pollo (chicken thighs with yellow rice and veggies topped with chicken breast), chuleta empanada (breaded pork), or mahi mahi fricassee. Tax and gratuity are already included for the cost of dinner, so you can skip the calculations and get straight into phase two of your evening.
