Precise putters of all ages may try their hand at this relaxing yet challenging course, featuring greens that weave in and out of miniature rock quarries, rolling rivers, wide wooden bridges and ball-hungry rivers.

Sequestered on 90 acres of Chaska woodland, Golf Zone's sanctuary for swing practice transforms golf into a game for all seasons. Under the roof of the complex's heated driving range with 40 hitting stalls, players are able to play through all six of Minnesota's seasons. Yardage-marked target greens dot the landscape, facilitating friendly games of longest ball and closest to the target. While the range's toasty confines transport golfers and their clubs to a subequatorial fantasy realm, stall-side televisions keep them tethered to reality with live sporting events and breaking news about the tragic passing of the county's most beloved ball washer.
Inside Golf Zone's open-floor facility, golfers steer orbs down the emerald runways of the 18-hole Big Bear Mini Putt course. Surrounded by rocky outcrops and faux pine trees, each putting surface plots a winding path over subtle slopes, helping players to hone their putting stroke in a climate-controlled environment without having to roll out their own green carpet.
