The family is the basic unit of society—yet, statistically, family members are the very people most likely to steal the extra Arch Deluxe you've been saving for all these years. Solidify family alliances and suss out enemies with today's Groupon: for $32, you get a family fun day package at Dulles Golf Center & Sports Park that includes four or five games of miniature golf, four or five buckets of driving-range balls, and four or eight batting cage tokens (up to a $78 value). Quantities differ depending on the day of the week you redeem the Groupon.
The multientertainment emporium fetes familial units with breezy outdoor activities in its spacious, well-manicured confines. Monday through Thursday, leisure seekers can line up for five games of miniature golf (a $7.50 value each), then tote a quintet of golf-ball-filled buckets (a $6.50 value each) to the award-winning driving range to satisfyingly launch a bevy of dimpled cosmonauts. Head to the batting cages with an armload of eight tokens to work on your follow through or fulfill long-dormant dreams of little-league stardom (a $1 value each).
Weekend warriors who enjoy human crowds as additional obstacles can set their putt-putt sights on four games of miniature golf, sinking orbs into organized hovels around diminutive castles and miniscule cheering royalty (a $7.50 value each), hit the driving range with four buckets of golf balls (a $6.50 value each), and use four batting cage tokens to release bat-wielding rage (a $1 value each). The fun-filled facility is open until 10 p.m. daily starting in March, ideal for fans of cooler temperatures and sun-defying night lights.
In addition to revelous recreation, the happening hot spot boasts an affiliate business, Fun Company Picnics, which will reward Groupon purchasers with a free welcome table if they book a party with the casual outdoor dining establishment. Company picnics are ideal for spring, summer, and fall get-togethers with coworkers or your exceptionally diligent, time-clock-punching collection of stuffed animals.

Dulles Golf Center & Sports Park
Each element of the sporting symphony emanates from its respective part of Dulles Golf Center & Sports Park: the pings of golf balls from the driving range, the smacks of the volleyball from the sand courts, and the line-drive cracks from the batting cages. The covered, lighted range—which Golf Range magazine ranked as one of the Top 50 Standalone Golf Ranges in America in 2013—is home to PGA Director of Instruction Chuck Will and his golf academy. It's also big brother to an 18-hole miniature golf course decorated with the scaled-down versions of historic lighthouses, which lends the course a nautical charm and might help anyone find safe passage on a particularly foggy night.
