Virtual golf combines the recreation of hitting the links with the challenge of keeping Pac-Man from eating the ball. Become a cyberspace hero with today's Groupon: for $15, you get one hour of golf simulation at Alaska Golf Shot in Wasilla (a $30 value).
Housed within the climate-controlled expanse of a 4,300-square-foot enclosed facility, the virtual courses at Alaska Golf Shot provide a weather-free way for patrons to enjoy the game of golf year round. Patrons hone swings during one of 61 different game setups, including courses of varying difficulty, driving range simulations, and putting practice. Different slopes and angles add challenging terrain to each game’s equation, helping players control their shots during stays in the bunker or dips in the tar pit. The staff also utilizes leftover processing power by running a number of shooting simulations, including big game hunting, archery, and skeet shooting. Equipped to handle between-game snacks or post-putt physics lessons, the lounge and concession areas keep guests plugged in with big screen televisions, golf retail, and comfy seats.
