A towering dome dedicated to golf practice looms over The Golf Dome’s multifaceted grounds, serving as the gravitational center of a facility dedicated to recreational golf and baseball practice. Inside the vaulted white roof, golfers stroke drives from one of 34 hitting bays at the indoor, two-tiered driving range, where distance-reading software flashes instant readouts of shot trajectory and the pain inflicted on each practice ball. The dome further facilitates climate-controlled clubbing with a putting and chipping area and Full Swing golf simulators, which allow golfers to play digital recreations of more than 30 of the world’s top courses.
Outside, a scenic, 20-foot waterfall draws players to the 18-hole miniature golf course, where contoured greens run between rocky outcrops, interrupted by water that comes into play on 14 holes. The din of sharply struck line drives echoes throughout the grounds, sonic evidence of the six adjacent batting cages, where players swing at high-arching softballs, baseballs hurled at up to 75 miles per hour, and tiny meteors raining from the sky.

Aiming to provide superb playing conditions, the tight, tree-lined fairways of Grantwood Golf Course span 6,429 yards of gently undulating terrain. Today's deal invites a club-toting quartet of players to channel the preternatural precision of golf's Scottish progenitors, dodging the 40-plus bunkers that hug the edges of bent-grass fairways and butterfly-kiss the fringes of Grantwood's relatively small greens. Water hazards complicate passage on more than half of the holes, increasing demand for accurate drives, pinpoint approaches, and flutists well-versed in charming putter-starved pond trolls. The course's modest length and straightforward layout temper some of its more challenging elements, creating a grassy monolith surmountable by first-time players but still trying for more practiced divoteers. If the day's golf binge makes your inner salmon jump merrily upstream, take to the adjacent driving range or roam the pro shop for additional game fine-tuning.
