Cut through thick forests in the heart of White Haven, Stone Meadows Golf Course presents visitors with a tree-framed layout that weaves around links-style mounds and bunkers. The course brings water into play on a handful of holes, and multiple sharp dog legs lie in wait to challenge even the most skilled golfers. But competitors at Stone Meadows don't necessarily have to use clubs or slingshots to move balls across the course?they can use their feet, too. The relatively short length of 5,210 yards from the tips makes the course a perfect fit for footgolf, a hybrid of soccer and golf in which players aim to kick a soccer ball into cups in as few shots as possible.

Mulligan's Family Golf Center beckons to birdie-hunters with a scaled-down golf course, an 18-hole mini-golf circuit, and a full-length driving range. With its longest hole measuring in at 108 yards, the center's 9-hole Chip-n-Putt course fosters short-game refinement, as players send balls somersaulting onto small greens from artificial tees or out of one of the layout's three sand traps. Mulligan's graciously rents out golf balls (a $0.50 deposit each, refunded when balls are returned) for use on the course, saving players the hassle of buying their own sleeve or chiseling a bocce ball down to the right size.
For more pressure-free swing practice, Mulligan's 30-stall driving range lets clubbers dial in their wedges, irons, woods, and mannequin legs with five signs demarcating yardages all the way back to the 250-yard terminus. The center also encompasses an 18-hole mini-golf course, where putt-putt posses crouch to demystify tricky breaking putts while the burbling sounds of waterfalls, fountains, and streams set a tranquil tone.
Designed by renowned architect Geoffrey Cornish, Center Valley Club's verdant pastures embrace two distinct nine-hole terrains. The British-style front nine holes incorporate hidden mounds, lakes, and undulating greens ideal for concealing surplus Easter eggs. Club clutchers then march toward the North American–centric back nine, populated by woodland, lakes, and sand traps masquerading as restful turfside beaches. Golfers can also practice on Center Valley's Club's driving range before embarking on their orb-pummeling odysseys, choosing from five levels of yardage based on skill level and distance covered by “fore” yodels.

The 18-hole course at Chapel Hill guides golfers along lush fairways framed by dense tree lines and confronted by water on 11 holes. Six holes—beginning with No. 1—demand precise course-management skills when navigating shots around the stream that cuts through their fairways, demanding that players lay up, muscle their shots over, or swap their golf ball out for a beach ball. Laid end-to-end, the course measures 6,089 yards from the blue tees, the farthest of four available for play on each hole.
Course at a Glance: * 18-hole, par 70 course * Total length of 6,089 yards from the back tees * Course rating of 69.7 from the back tees * Course slope of 125 from the back tees * Four sets of tees per hole
In the 1930s, Prohibition-era bootlegger Max Hassel was blacklisted by a Pennsylvania country club due to his illicit wheeling-and-dealing?so he took matters into his own hands. Hassel commissioned Sir Robert White, a renowned Scottish course designer, to craft a 9-hole course on his Robeson Township estate, where no one could deny him access. Though it's received several upgrades since its original construction, the 2,934-yard, par 36 course still bears the characteristics of links-style golf, with intricately contoured greens, deep bunkers, and blotches of thick rough that punish inaccurate play.
