Prairie Lanes hosts bowling bacchanalia across 12 lanes of oily, family-friendly revelry. Automated scoring leaves crucial brainpower untapped for tying the included pair of shoes and not accidentally throwing the ball like a shot put (up to a $3 value each for games and a $2 value each for shoe rentals). A 108-inch projection screen hangs above the lanes, keeping players informed of the goings-on of less important sports. Fuel up with a soda (a $1.75 value) before knocking over planetoid pins during cosmic bowling, or sidle over to the arcade to play foosball, pool, or video games. Open until midnight seven nights a week, Prairie Lanes provides a post-dusk activity preferable to teaching streetlights to waltz.

A golf cart calmly rolls over the footbridge of a creek, its soft motor interrupted only by the pings of golf balls cutting through the air. At The Bridges at Beresford, the creek babbles alongside all but two of the course's nine holes. In keeping with the aquatic obstacles, two large ponds crowd the action between the second and fourth and the sixth and eighth fairways. Though only one of the four par 4s extends beyond 400 yards, the two par 3s are daunting, measuring 194 yards and 175 yards from the back tees, respectively. Strategically placed bunkers further complicate the terrain, forcing players to dial in their approaches and write SOS whenever they get lost.

Course at a Glance:

  • 9-hole, par 36 course
  • Total length of 3,369 yards from the back tees
  • Four sets of tees per hole

The Bluffs Golf Course plots a 6,684-yard path through groves of trees and around waterways for a challenging 18-hole layout. A session at the onsite driving range prepares swings and sleep-deprived 9-irons in time for the upcoming pin-hunting odyssey, where water comes in play on five of the first six holes. Duffers can redeem a disappointing round at the 18th hole, a 570-yard behemoth that entices aggressive, satisfying drives and lacks the aquatic hazards that temper bold play on prior holes. A relatively difficult course when played from the tips, the course offers four color-designated tee options to cater to players of all handicaps as well as those with an irrational allegiance to red.

Course at a Glance:

  • 18-hole, par 72 course

  • Length of 6,684 yards from the farthest tees

  • Course rating of 72.5 from the farthest tees

  • Slope rating of 128 from the farthest tees

  • Four tee options
