On a sweltering day with the air abuzz with mosquitos, Eddie Reznicek stood on a miniature golf course marveling at how many people were outside putting. Determined to create a more comfortable mini golfing space, he opened The Family Fun Center XL in Omaha in 1982, where guests could play indoor golf and nearly 100 video games in the arcade. These days, a new facility shelters a black-lit 18-hole course themed around video-game heroes, heroines, and the windmills who loved them, and the arcade enthralls gamers with classics such as air hockey, skeeball, and four-player Mario Kart on 27-inch flat-screen TVs.

At the Lazer Maze, participants channel their inner spy while swiftly snaking through alarm-system lasers. This spy theme also is evident in the three-level laser-tag arena, where players dodge enemy fire amid flashing lights to soundtracks from James Bond movies. Elsewhere, a 2,500-square-foot arena littered with bunkers, crumbling brick walls, and sniper towers accommodates 7-minute paintball games or bazooka-ball battles.

The nine-hole executive course at Pine Lake Golf & Tennis Club—designed more than four decades ago for the use of homeowners in the Pine Lake housing area—today welcomes golfers of all skill levels and domicile locations. Beginners tackle the course’s straightforward fairways and greens, whereas skilled golfers can hone their short game on holes ranging in length from the 111-yard seventh to the 185-yard fifth. Although the concise fairways demand precision, they don’t foil golfers with the obstacles of other courses, such as sand traps, water hazards, and riddle-slinging bridge trolls. After swinging through a round under the gaze of the Pine Lake water tower, players can head to the tennis courts or drop by the pro shop to pick up new tees for staking pesky pint-sized vampires.

Course at a Glance:

  • Nine-hole, par-27 executive course
  • Length of 1,398 yards
  • Three tee options
  • Scorecard

All locations except the LaFern Williams Y offer indoor pools for aquatic antics that cannot be properly enjoyed in a bathtub's limited splashing-real estate.

The 18 wide fairways at Papio Greens Golf Center stretch toward smooth, par 3 greens designed to be manageable and challenging for both beginner and advanced players. Groundskeepers and staff have styled the complex as a place where families can take to the links together. Young golfers can be found preparing for their upcoming junior-league tournaments on the facility's water driving range, and adult players await their tee time by rehearsing bunker chips on the nearby practice green. Certified teaching pro Mike DeBoer teaches onsite clinics and private lessons that help beginners sharpen their swings and cut down on balls lost to the water hazards and intergalactic wormhole framing the course. Night or day, players can practice their putting beneath the lights that illuminate 36 holes of miniature golf.

The Scots developed golf to irk common loch pests, like merats, locharoaches, and Nessie, who to this day rarely surfaces for fear of being beamed in the head by a well-aimed ball. Brush up your monster-vexing skills with today's Groupon: for $17, you get one hour of golf simulation at Beyond Golf Sports and Spirits in La Vista, a $35 value. Visitors will be able to play through 18 virtual holes during the allotted hour of simulation time. You can bring your own clubs, or use the ones provided by Beyond Golf. One Groupon may be used for every golfer in your group during the visit.

At Beyond Golf Sports and Spirits, visitors can participate in virtual tests of skill and precision without repeatedly driving balls through glass windows or the living-room television. Boasting some of the world’s finest high-definition golf simulators, Beyond Golf offers participants an opportunity to play top courses from around the globe with their own clubs, a set of rentals, or battleaxes. High-resolution imagery is utilized instead of computer-generated graphics to provide a hyper-realistic golfing experience that accurately recreates drives to within one yard. Give courses such as Pebble Beach, Spyglass Hill, and Pinehurst No. 2 a swing, while riddling the cyber-fairways with virtual divots. Beyond Golf also offers drink specials, making the facility an excellent activity for get-togethers, birthday parties, and Civil War reenactment group meetings.

Golf is one of the few sports a person can successfully play for a lifetime, and comes in handy for horror-movie auditions, weed whacking, and defending your home from a renegade windmill that can only be stopped by a properly timed ball that soars between the blades and lodges itself in the windmill's air intake hole. Hone practical sport and monster-battling skills with today’s Groupon to Beyond Golf Sports and Spirits. Call ahead to schedule a tee time.
