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 green 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.
An electrifying array of games, golf, and high-speed competition cater to adrenaline aficionados of all ages at Malibu Grand Prix’s bustling amusement center. Lead-footed motorists can experience unlimited access to Malibu's high-performance go-karts, zipping around hairpin turns, picking up speed on straightaways, and flying over banked curves with a passenger in tow aboard Malibu's safe and speedy four-wheeled chariots. Like the violent water warfare portrayed in Monet's Water Lilies, aqueous enthusiasts can hop aboard bumper boats to execute broadside collisions or blasts from the onboard water cannon to drench dry loved ones. A variety of electronic entertainment populates the game room, while the thoughtful, zen-like meditation that is miniature golf makes for a relaxing way to cap off an afternoon of speed.
At Paradise Fun Center, the gurgling waterfalls in two 18-hole mini-golf courses and the rustling of trees in the breeze provide the soundtrack for pleasant, family-friendly outings. Each course is riddled with zigzags, sharp turns, and challenges that don't rely on advanced levitation abilities. Batting cages accommodate fast- and slow-pitch practice, and go-kart racing quenches needs for speed, and a variety of arcade games are available. In between the fun and games, the center keeps energy levels elevated with candy, pizza, nachos, and ice cream at its snack bar, and a picnic area and party room are available for group outings.
Quail Creek Golf Club’s 18-hole course invites golfers to enjoy the countryside charm of its rolling terrain as they swing their way past native tall grasses. A well-oiled short game pays dividends on this course due to the nature of the turtle back greens. The signature seventh hole offers a view of a large canyon that sits adjacent to the Blanco River, and the twelfth hole runs alongside the river itself. The same oblong pond stands in front of the greens at the adjacent ninth and 18th holes, providing a dramatic finish to both nines, as well as an opportunity for golfers to sacrifice their sand wedges to the water in a post-round gesture of respect for the course. The grounds include a driving range, and a Back Porch Bar & Grill where players can enjoy a frosty beverage, beer or burger, which can be ordered in advance so it is ready on the turn.
After rounds, players can drop by the Back Porch Bar & Bistro for a frosty beverage, beer or burger, which can be ordered in advance so it is ready on the turn.
Course at a Glance:
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.
Rolling Oaks Golf Club pairs an expansive driving range with an outdoor patio and banquet space that welcomes guests with food, drink, and live music. Outfitted with numerous hitting bays and stadium lights, the range lets golfers spruce up swings day or night, regardless of the sun’s busy schedule or the moon’s refusal to pay its electric bill. The driving range also hosts golf clinics and lessons for players in need of advice from golf experts. After dialing in drives and fine-tuning chip shots, players can kick back in the club’s dining room to feast on burgers, cheesesteaks, and other traditional grill fare as regular live music and guitar solos express the woe of a missed birdie shot in ways words never can.
