Mini golf arose out of demand for a time-efficient alternative to a full round of golf and a global passion for man-made waterfalls. Putt through artificial cascades with today’s Groupon: for $28, you get a mini-golf outing for four at Mac N Bones Golf & Grill in Pearl (a $56.08 total value). The outing includes the following:
- Unlimited mini-golf for four (a $10/person value)
- One large 16-inch pizza and four soft drinks (a $16.08 total value)<p>
At Mac N Bones Golf & Grill’s pirate-themed miniature-golf course, dimpled neon balls traverse bridges, island greens, and caves as they voyage toward 18 holes. Players can putt from green to green, practicing their swings and perfecting their grandfather-clock pendulum motion before sitting down for a large 16-inch pizza and soda. Gushing waterfalls and geysers furnish a liquid soundtrack at the course, which part-owner and Overtime Sports founder Tim Bennett lauded to NBC 3 as a “very competitive course” and “very difficult to play.” Bennett founded the course along with NBA All-Star Tracy McGrady and former New Orleans Saints running back Deuce McAllister. With unlimited play for four people, double dates or Gang of Four cover bands can enjoy a full day of outdoor recreation.
Mac and Bones Miniature Golf
A black-and-white flag hovers above the greens at Mac and Bones Miniature Golf, signifying the rowdy swashbuckling theme of this 18-hole course in a single glance. As waterfalls splash against the caves that flank the course, festive pirate-themed obstacles—from strategically placed treasure chests to captains who force players to polish their hooks before each shot—lure putts away from holes. NBA star Tracy McGrady co-owns the course, along with Tim Bennett, who calls the course layout “very competitive.” In addition to sun-drenched greens, Mac and Bones also invites players into its 8,000-square-foot indoor arena, packed with arcade games, prizes, and a menu of pizza, wings, and beverages.
