At Village Green Miniature Golf, dimpled orbs roll along two different 18-hole courses. As a reward for executing perfect putts and remembering the words to the Happy Birthday song during a friend's party, visitors can gorge on pizza, soda, and ice cream sandwiches.
Practice is the foundation of golf. Without it, the game can be frustrating, eventually sending golfers' into a fragile state of agitation. Knowing how important practice is, Indian Head Golf Park's instructors and staff focus their efforts on helping golfers improve their game. At the park's well-lit driving range, staff members keep golfers well stocked with buckets of range balls to blow off steam as they aim for the ball-retriever cart. Instructor Bob Greenstein works with students during private lessons to fine-tune their swings, and he hosts junior golf camps during summer to introduce youngsters to the game.
Colonial Springs Restaurant is located at Colonial Springs Golf Club. Our dining room and outdoor patio seating offer a beautiful view of the golf course and 11-acre lake. Special needs can be easily accommodated, as well as unique personal requests for special occasions such as parties and anniversaries.
Before teeing off at Fairchild Wheeler Golf Club, you must decide: red or black. No, you don't have to spin a roulette wheel to determine which tee box to use, but you do have to choose which of the property's two courses to play. Both links check in at 18 holes, and each one measures just over 6,500 yards from the back tees. The par-71 red course requires careful tee shots, and the par-72 black course boasts newly renovated fairways and greenside bunkers. Before tackling a round, golfers can take advantage of on-site lessons, including sessions at the club's indoor teaching studio equipped with video cameras and swing analysis software. Younger golfers can sharpen their skills, too, especially by attending the club's Nike junior summer golf camps.
At Studio Golf, players smack their golf balls into a large screen that displays a highly accurate visual of a real golf course and uses ball flight information to produce real-world results. Rather than travel to oft-distant courses and schlep their clubs around 18 holes, players get to remain indoors and let the computer do the traveling for them. The system can be configured for lessons and clinics in addition to 9- or 18-hole rounds, allowing players to focus on aspects of their game such as drives off the tee or iron approaches.
A diverse collection of mature trees populates Oronoque Country Club's 18-hole course, their sturdy trunks imbuing the 6,575-yard layout with the venerable feel that only comes with age. However, the trees are far from just a cosmetic asset. Whether casting their shadows over straight fairways or using their knotty arms to block corner-cutting drives on the course's five dog-leg holes, the trees play a major role in making the mid-length course both challenging to golfers and attractive to retirement-age squirrels. The course also features two ponds that come into play, including one that creates a forced-carry tee shot on the par 3 third hole. Elsewhere, the club boasts a driving range, a practice green, and a trio of golf instructors that help correct swings and teach visitors to ride bareback on golf carts.
