In addition to providing recreational enjoyment, riding in go-karts and playing miniature golf are excellent ways to prepare children for a future filled with high-speed car chases and malevolent windmills. Stay vigilant with today’s Groupon: for $22, you get one four-person round of mini golf, eight go-kart rides, and four beverages at Golfland USA in Owensboro (a $52 total value).
Family owned and operated, Golfland USA provides challenging mini golf and go-kart racing. On-the-fly geometry skills are put to the test on the 18-hole regulation miniature-golf course, whose holes and event horizons are lined by windmills and other pieces of entertaining automata. After tallying your strokes, walk over to the quarter-mile go-kart track, where single or two-person go-karts for young children are available. Conquer the quick twists and meandering turns while competing against friends or family for bragging rights and troll-doll collections. Whether toasting to victory or washing away the salty taste of defeat, each member of the visitor quartets will receive a thirst-slaking beverage to commemorate the day of fun.
The ping of golf clubs and baseball bats rings out across the grounds and rises above the thrumming engines and squealing tires of go-karts at Golfland USA. Part training ground, part recreational respite, Golfland invites golfers to hone their game at a driving range or enjoy more laid-back par-hunting at a mini-golf course. Guests can also perfect a different kind of swing at the batting cages, which sling baseballs at three different speeds and offer two slow-pitch softball machines. The fun center also encompasses a quarter-mile go-kart track where drivers speed down straightaways and drift around tight turns. In addition, Golfland also offers a weekend bouncy house, a giant slide, and bungee trampolines for guests to enjoy.
