Outfitted with two elaborate miniature-golf tracks, Timber Creek dazzles putters with challenging holes and an interactive course design. Visitors can relish the rivers and valleys flanking the manicured landscape of the Logging Camp, an 18-hole layout anchored by a churning sawmill, rushing waterfalls, and a central pond. Players pursuing naval adventure or ancient barnacle specimens can plant their tees in 19 holes of the Shipwreck course, a sprawling, sinuous set of greens that regales eagle hunters with a foreboding canyon, a lighthouse, and a model wooden shipwreck bolstering a Canadian flag. Though Timber Creek outfits all customers with putters and balls in its air-conditioned clubhouse, seasoned chippers can tote their own clubs or whittled-down telephone poles. The expansive facility illuminates its courses for evening play, and customers can explore the 35-acre park's additional attractions, including a gemstone mining area, driving range, a 20-foot inflatable slide, and an arsenal of batting cages.
Established in 1985, Milltown Mini Golf sends visitors putting past fishponds, a working water wheel, and lush gardens. But because the facility sprawls across two acres of land, the family-oriented amusement park doesn't stop at mini golf. When you set down your club, you can pick up a bat in the batting cages; or a paintball gun at the target range; or even an authentic metal detector while hunting for treasures. You can also style your hair inside Milltown's hurricane wind tunnel, or take home a new friend after building a customized teddy bear.
Putting Edge's phosphorescent indoor mini golf course challenges putters with a network of greens hindered by glow-in-dark obstacles. Eighteen holes twist and turn throughout a darkened space populated by painted neon trees and glowing statues. A steady stream of upbeat music sets the pace for players as they navigate their way through the incandescent labyrinth to prove to competitors that their putting skills—like the bottom of Lake Michigan and Celine Dion's hair—are untouchable.
Built on the site of former league bowling centre The Strike Zone, Park Royal Family Fun Centre's facilities welcome young energy with bowling, golf, and inflatable playgrounds. 90 minutes of family bowling includes five-pin lane rental for up to six relatives or secret agents disguised as relatives. Equipped with automatic scoring, each lane can accommodate avid players while hoisting automatic gutter blockers, bumpers, and ramps. Bowlers may enjoy their full time in a lane music and light show, but may also substitute their last 30 minutes of game time for a round of 18-hole glow-in-the-dark miniature golf, sending dimpled orbs rolling through light-up loops and into the stratosphere. Shoe rental ($3 per adult, $1.50 per student, free under size 1) is not included in this Groupon.
An all-in-one recreation facility, Skateland Family Fun Center entertains families for hours with rounds of 18-hole outdoor mini golf, laps around the wooden roller rink, and futuristic laser-tag battles. Kids can challenge parents for a high score in the arcade or perfect their air-running form as they ricochet off the walls of giant bounce houses. Adults and kids frequent the rink for hockey leagues and skating lessons, as well.
Glowing monkeys scamper toward a neon waterfall, and a knight bearing a radiant yellow lance rides past a bright orange octopus emerging from the ocean. What appears to be a time-traveling session gone awry is really the evolving environment within Putting Edge’s indoor black-lit mini-golf course, which whisks players to deep seas, Aztec jungles, and medieval times. Since opening its original location in Canada, Putting Edge has now expanded to 16 North American locations, all of which invite guests onto its challenging 18-hole courses to seek victory over opponents and the forces that keep their teeth from not glowing as brightly as they could. Elsewhere, the facility houses private party rooms, concessions, and an arcade filled with gamer favorites such as air hockey.
