With iridescent miniature golf courses in malls throughout North America, Glowgolf adds elements of phosphorescent fun to shopping sessions. Courses contain sights such as light-defying blush corals, incandescent animals, and lush foliage reminiscent of the glowing trees on Neptune. Each pass is good for three 18-hole games, giving golfers ample opportunity to get familiar with each hole's obstacles. Equipment is available on the spot, so players won't have to carry around personal clubs or seek out a bioluminescent caddie.
Bowling is the great social equalizer—a common ground where grizzled undercover clowns, blue-collar English lords, LARPer librarians, big and tall lingerie models, hordes of hive-minded hipsters, and the other two social demographics that comprise America can unite in common cause and topple a gaggle of stuck-up, inanimate wooden pins. Brunswick has been a household name in this egalitarian pastime almost since the beginning, with a company history that dates back to the 19th century, providing classic American good times to all manner of patrons across the country. And with today's Groupon tying the room together, you'll get to play two games (up to a $10.58 value) in its hallowed halls wearing a pair of freshly disinfected bowling shoes (up to a $4.25 value).

When a golfer makes a reservation at Tee Time, he’s not securing a slot on an actual course and he’s definitely not going to need a cart or a caddy. That’s because reservations made at Tee Time are for the facility’s private suites, where state-of-the-art, high-definition golf simulators display 20 of the world’s most renowned courses. From Bethpage Black in New York to Pebble Beach in California, courses look and feel just as they do in real life—every viewpoint is accounted for, and flying golf carts are still considered a major distraction. Four different playing formats, including stroke play and match play, help players personalize the experience. And to take games to the next level, Tee Time offers lessons led by PGA- and USGTF-certified instructors.
The phosphorescent indoor landscape at Monster Mini Golf immerses putters in an eerie universe that inverts the sun-soaked cheer of conventional courses. Rimmed in glowing barriers, 18 holes lure swingers of all sizes to challenge their coordination and resolve in the face of winged monsters, scowling animated trees, a creepy clown, and their opponents' shockingly dazzling smiles. Sheltered from searing rain and howling wind, the indoor course enables play around hazards such as a spell well and luminous, ghostly windmill at any time of the year. An in-house radio station and DJ mask the sound of pounding hearts with lively beats and course commentary, and golfers looking for additional glory can win prizes by participating in regular contests or at the on-site arcade.
Hyatt Hills Golf Complex aims to make the game of golf less complicated. The facility exceeds the call of a typical golf venue, incorporating an 18-hole mini golf course, a driving range, and even a restaurant in addition to its nine-hole course. Measuring 3,350 yards from the back tees, the par 36 layout forces players to contend with several shots over water, healthy doses of greenside bunkering, and a pair of long doglegs in holes 2 and 5—both par 5s. Players can also work with Hyatt Hills' roster of PGA professionals for help getting over a scoring hump—a solution that's easier on the conscience than just conveniently forgetting every third stroke.
