Some things are more family friendly when done on a smaller scale, such as playing golf or sinking battleships. Enjoy an activity at its optimal size with today's Groupon: for $9, you get four rounds of mini golf in one visit at Golden Ridge Golf in Richmond Hill (a $20 value).
Golden Ridge Golf mirrors its scenic practice greens and driving range with a diminutive 18-hole outdoor mini-golf course. With four rounds of golf, mini putters may play in a combination of ways, including four people at once, two people twice, or one person four times in a row, while a clock enthusiast times them. The course captures the charms of an old country town by boasting a novelty wagon, general store, and a vintage-looking cannon. Since each hole harbours a different challenge, golfers can avoid the occasional monotony associated with invariable mini-golf driving ranges.
Golden Ridge Golf
The piercing clang of well-struck drives resonates across the grounds at Golden Ridge Golf, their echoes beckoning to clubbers to come groom their game at the multifaceted complex. Guests can smooth out rough-edged swings with a stint at the 300-yard driving range, where players can hit off of natural grass or faux-turf mats and take cover in sheltered hitting bays during rainstorms or pelican pranks. An 18-hole mini-golf course channels the charm of an old country town with a decorative wagon, general store facade, and putters that double as moustache combs. All of the grounds’ score-shaving resources are utilized to the fullest during Golf Academy clinics and lessons, which are overseen by CPGA-certified pro and former touring professional Gordie Burns.
