Natural bamboo and wood fences surround the miniature fairways of Jungle River Mini Golf, whose aptly named course pits putters against a slew of jungle-themed obstacles. Like rainforest explorers, groups of golfers hack through the wild landscape, forgoing machetes for colorful putters or spring-loaded spatulas sized to accommodate guests of all ages. Monkeypod trees, palms, crotons, and banana plants drape over the course, framing many attractions including sculptures of friendly gorillas and dinosaurs emerging from tar pits. The course also features large bridges and waterfalls that meander throughout to create sharp turns and contoured greens.
Almost everything glows at Rascal's Family Fun Center—the pirate-themed mini-golf obstacles, the bowling pins on the four-lane alley, and the smiles of the children at play. Their grins come from the center's sheer range of activities, including a Lazy Frenzy challenge, an Indiana Jones-like laser-tag arena, and a full redemption arcade, all illuminated under funky black lights. An onsite cafe fuels the fun during play sessions or parties.
The Waikiki Tennis Club & Golf at the Pacific Beach Hotel furnishes sportsmen and women with two Classic Clay tennis courts and a golf practice station complete with hitting cages and putting green. Operated by the USTA Hawaii Pacific Section to provide tennis opportunities to al ages, the tennis courts feature a unique synthetic surface that looks and plays just like real clay without harming the world's dwindling population of wild clay pigeons. Participants in either sport can reserve the facilities and practice at their own leisurely pace, or recruit a golf instructor or tennis pro to help improve their form and technique.
