One of the only golf courses of its type in the Midwest, the sprawling, lake-fronted Castle Course replicates some of the game’s best-known layouts. Golfers compete against imaginary PGA rivals on meticulous reproductions of seven legendary holes, including the 13th hole at Augusta National, and the water-surrounded, Nessie-guarded 17th hole at TPC Sawgrass. You and a companion roll from dream link to dream link in an included cart, equipped with GPS to ensure foolproof navigation, and, should that fail, plenty of practice balls to act as more durable bread crumbs.
Whether grabbing a few friends or gathering the whole family, bowling alleys offer the quintessential fun evening out, and Skipp's Bowling Center ensures that groups have a great night.

At the bar, drinks pour freely and, inside the game room, kids and adults alike can send balls scattering across a pool table or hit the track in racing games.
