Usually eating a burger doesn't do much for your golf game. But it just might when you're eating it at Rolling Oaks Golf Club Bar & Grill. That's because the restaurant features its very own driving range, where diners can whack buckets of golf balls on a 40+ spot range, or on extra large chipping and putting greens before and after their meals. A practice sand trap keeps their skills sharp, and they can even measure their progress with signs marking 110?272 yards.
When they're done practicing, it's time to head back in and grab an order of fried pickles, some chicken wings, and an ice-cold beer. There's also an outdoor patio where diners can enjoy happy hour drinks daily and live music on the weekends while they watch the sun travel to China.
As the former world-record holder for driving distance, Brad Peterson turned his passion for power into an all-encompassing purview of golf strategy. For more than 14 years, Brad has been helping golfers lower scores through private and group lessons at Peterson Golf. He determines the issues his student might be experiencing and identifies key areas for improvement. Armed with this information, he devises custom lesson plans, including swing-specific exercises and video-swing analysis to reveal imbalanced backswings and triple-axel follow-throughs.
Although Brad has taught more than 8,000 students in his career, one pupil stands out, not only as a physically imposing human but also as a success story: NBA Hall of Famer Rick Barry. After meeting and discussing golf, Brad turned Rick into a three-time RE/MAX World Long Drive Champion with his techniques for maximizing power and avoiding low-post rejections by other former NBA big men.
Laser Legend's black-lit arena surrounds players in a scene that seems straight out of a science-fiction movie. Glowing planets and stars backdrop the 5,000-square-foot space, where fog creeps out from behind neon-blue walls and 14 robots guard bases. Up to eight teams fire lasers across two levels, competing during match types such as capture the flag or tickle the flag until it says uncle. The phosphorescent ambience also extends to the Glo Golf course, where alien forests and caves surround golfers as they line up putts. The course employs a multi-hole system that allows Laser Legend?s intergalactic greenskeepers to change the cup locations each week. Elsewhere, more than 40 games, such as Sno Cross, Dirty Driving, Doodle Jump, and Juke-n-Box, create a symphony of electronic beeps in the arcade.
The aromas of fresh-baked breadsticks lure visitors into the onsite restaurant, Noble Roman's Pizza, where chefs fry chicken wings, assemble italian-beef subs, and slide pepperoni pizzas into the oven. This casual Italian cuisine also fuels stomachs within Laser Legend's party rooms, where guests can watch satellite TV and birthday kids eat a breadstick for every year they've had teeth.
