Miniature versions often present significant advantages—take the TV version of Honey, I Shrunk the Kids, the running time of which perfectly matches the average time between sour-gummy-worm cravings. Shrink your golf game down to size with today's Groupon: for $14, you get 18 holes of miniature golf and your choice of bumper boats, go-karts, laser tag, batting cages, or climbing wall for two (up to a $28.50 value) at Golf N' Stuff.
Use your knowledge of geometry, spheroid kinetics, and the Dewey decimal system to smack balls past princess castles, Victorian houses, marooned ships, windmills, and wood mills at either of Golf N' Stuff's two challenging courses ($8 for one game). Well-groomed landscapes and crazy obstacles color the teeny greens with adventures and excitement appropriate for kids, adults, and world-weary immortals alike. After conquering the links, choose between strapping into a custom go-kart and taking a day of thunder at the Lit’l Indy Raceway ($12.50 value), or conquering conquistadors and scurvy on bumper boats equipped with super-soaker cannons ($12 value). You can also take up arms against a sea of lasers in a game of laser tag (up to a $12 value), a sea of baseballs at the batting cages ($1 for 20 pitches), or a solid slab of minerals at The Rock, a climbing wall for practicing Dwayne Johnsons ($2 a climb).
The pleasures of miniaturized golf are many: blocking out distracting noises with pure focus, channeling your hatred of windmills into a fluid avenging putt, and the singular joy of landing a small ball into a gorilla's mouth without it attacking you. Mini golf improves concentration, patience, and technique with every stroke. An afternoon on the little links of Golf N' Stuff gives stressed nannies, hyperactive tots, and competitive colleagues a healthy alternative to family ice-cream night, and a legal alternative to family fight club.
Golf N' Stuff
The sight of a medieval castle surrounded by tall cacti may seem anachronistic at first, but it's hard to question the image when one is trying to putt a mini golf ball into a grassy hole off the circulating paddles of a windmill. It's whimsical moments like this that make Golf N’ Stuff's name feel understated. Beyond the two lush 18-hole mini golf courses that draw year-round visitors, the entertainment center boasts go-karts, bumper boats, and more than 100 arcade games. Batting cages let both kids and adults perfect their swings. Visitors can refuel on hot dogs, Dippin' Dots ice cream, and soda at the snack bar.
