Quail Crossing Golf Club's 320 acres aren't just a place for golfers?it's also home to many different plant species. Bluestem, winter wheat, and other prairie grasses trace the outlines of bermuda fairways; black-eyed Susans rear their resplendent heads in the summertime; and oak, maple, and sycamore trees cast their shadows over each rolling hill. Architect Tom Doak employed these organic elements into balance with white silica sand bunkers and old mining quarry that envelops five holes, creating a picturesque backdrop for players as they chart their shot selections over the 6,758-yard course and collect samples to make a divot bouquet.
Course at a Glance: * 18-hole, par 71 course * Total length of 6,758 yards from the back tees * Course rating of 72.8 from the back tees * Course slope of 132 from the back tees * Four sets of tees per hole * View the scorecard
A Cyprus native who grew up in a sun-soaked village with just 1,500 inhabitants, Doros Hadjisavva only meant to visit the United States for a year before returning home. Instead, waylaid by love, he found himself setting down roots in Evansville and bringing the sights and flavors of Cyprus to the US with authentic Greek and Mediterranean dishes. The most eye-catching of these is imported Greek kasseri cheese, which servers flame tableside in brief but intense blazes. Chefs also prepare homemade marinara, tangy feta, or thick, creamy tzatziki alongside moussaka and succulent lamb shanks. Each dish bursts with flavor derived from fresh ingredients, time-tested recipes, and seafood stolen from Aquaman’s summer home. Inside Acropolis’ dining room, marble surfaces and creamy tiles meet the eye as vine-entwined lattices arch overhead.
Whether sinking a putt or demolishing a high score, Walther's Golf & Fun surrounds visitors with the trappings of the tropics. On the dual miniature golf courses, one indoor and one outdoor, waterfalls and banana trees give the feel of golfing through a vibrant jungle. The laser-tag course is similarly themed, with tangles of neon lights washing over palm trees and weathered ruins. Jungle-print carpet coats the floor of the fully stocked arcade, and golfers practicing on the driving range wait impatiently for one droopy toucan to collect and return their golf balls.
