Mini-golf enjoys all the perks of normal-size golf without the hassle of losing balls, switching clubs, and dodging golfer traps set by man-eating golf carts. Take in the pleasures of hassle-free putting with today’s Groupon to Magic Greens, located in Dripping Springs. Choose between following options:
- For $5, you get two mini-golf course admissions (a $10 value).
- For $60, you get a children’s party for 10 children (a $120 value).
A formidable 18-hole mini-golf course blankets the serene, natural environment of Magic Greens, which is littered with elegant oak trees, native wildflowers, vine-covered gazebos, and cascading waterfalls that create an experience much like putting your way through a beautiful garden. With longer, more ambitious holes, the course should appeal to children, adults, and laser-guided-putting Robo–Arnold Palmers alike. Redeem your two admissions (a $10 value) for a two-person game of putt-putt, or trade them in for a multiperson game of bocce ball or washers.
Birthday parties (10 child minimum, a $12 value per child) include a game of golf for all young partiers along with private use of the pavilion, where children can chow down on their choice of a burger, hot dog, or pizza meal while politely discussing politics, the Wall Street Journal, and the alarming inflation of cooties. The party is rounded out with nifty gifts for the children, including a collectible Pez dispenser, a specialty sports golf ball, or a koozie.
Party-goers may bring in a cake but all other concessions must be purchased on site.
The soft jingling of wind chimes rolls across Magic Greens’s 2.5-acre facility, creating a tranquil space as clients lope across a miniature-golf course lined with handcrafted cedar structures, towering oaks, and native wildflowers. Owners Carole and James George added the serene touches to capitalize on the surrounding area's natural landscape, developing a scenic course that eschews the plastic statuettes and gimmicks of typical mini-golf courses in favor of a more authentic, clown-proof space. Alongside the challenging course rest four bocce-ball courts, ample space for casual washers games, vine-covered gazebos, two waterfalls, and a cedar pavilion where guests can enjoy food and nougaty-center golf balls from the concession-stand.
