The word "fore!" has been the standard forewarning shout for more than a century, beating out other, longer-winded phrases such as "don't look down!" and "rainbow!" Express golfing glee with today's Groupon: for $70, you get a two-hour kids' mini golf party at Harry Semrow Driving Range in Des Plaines (a $162 value).
Harry Semrow Driving Range preps putting companions for the green with a new, lush mini golf course. Up to 24 kids and three adults can participate in the two-hour mini golf outing, which includes eating and partying time at a private picnic area to which supervising grownups can bring in outside food (no beverages) and supervised tots can finally use their outside voices. After sinking a hole-in-one on one of the course's creatively designed holes and cramming food into bodies’ curvaceously designed bellies, pint-size putters can refuel and rehydrate with one of many on-site beverages (not included in this deal). Mini golf parties are perfect for birthdays, team celebrations, and therapy sessions for friends with windmill phobias.
