In addition to providing recreational enjoyment, playing miniature golf is an excellent way to prepare children for a future filled with malevolent windmills. Prepare your young putters for the terrors of tomorrow with today's Groupon: for $3, you get one round of mini golf at Indian Trails Miniature Golf in South Dayton (up to a $6.50 value).
At Indian Trails, children, seniors, and adults alike can embark on an 18-hole quest for small-scale golfing glory on one of two lushly landscaped courses. After expressing their preference for a green, purple, or royal-Stewart-plaid ball, golfers can get in some practice putts and throw away swings before choosing their own adventure on either the Braves & Squaws or Chiefs & Princesses course. Winding through naturally sylvan scenery, the paths for each course take golfers across bridged streams, forested paths, and to the base of a watery cascade, where each hole is designed to blend in to the natural terrain in order to swallow feral golf balls unaware.
Caddy-less competitors can recharge atop benches scattered throughout the course, and pie holes jealous of their ground-dwelling brethren will feel fulfilled at Indian Trails' snack and drink bar. Players should also be sure to turn in their scorecard to the clubhouse after the game, as nabbing a hole-in-one on certain holes can earn the player a free game and the undying adoration of Mom.
Indian Trails Miniature Golf
With its winding creek, cascading waterfall, and lush vegetation, Indian Trails Miniature Golf would be a peaceful place to spend an afternoon even if it didn't have a single hole of mini-golf. But of course, it has twin 18-hole links that snake along hills and rocky inclines. While navigating the landscape, golfers can cool down in the shade of foliage or listen as birds peck the course's 19th hole into a tree. Off the greens, the clubhouse staff serves up ice cream and hosts birthday parties replete with pizza, popcorn, and custom birthday golf balls.
