Before humans adopted it as a leisure activity, miniature golf was primarily used to woo potential clients or resolve water-cooler arguments by entrepreneurial pygmy marmosets. Settle small scores with today’s Groupon: for $7, you get one round of miniature golf for two at The Ice & Golf Center at Northwoods (a $14 value).
The Ice & Golf Center inspires family-friendly outings with 36 holes worth of mini-golf challenges seven days a week. Unlike traditional golf, gamers of all ages, experience levels, and trouser preferences can enjoy a round of this celebrated pastime. Practice greens welcome players to sharpen their putters and prepare for battle before choosing between two distinct 18-hole courses, and five ponds and two waterfalls proffer a scenic backdrop for taking commemorative hole-in-one snapshots or first-date cell-phone videos. Beyond the vast plains of synthetic turf, putt-putt pugilists can replenish their strength at The Ice & Golf Center's fully stocked concession stand or toast victories in the newly renovated sports bar.
