Mastering a peerless golf swing requires intense concentration on the arc of the club and a healthy disregard for the condition of your neighbor's statue garden. Control your projectile's path with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of miniature golf, batting cages, and driving-range access at Patterson Golf and Sports Park.
Patterson Golf and Sports Park is an outdoor playground embellished by miniature-golf courses, open-aired batting cages, and acres of hittable playing surface at the driving range. Putters can outwit the linear instincts of their opponents on the green miniature-golf stretches, adorned with fun-house hurdles such as wooden bumpers, moving obstacles, life-size animal statues, and automaton golf balls ($5.50/game). Open-aired batting cages ($3/25 pitches) beg sluggers to blast 35-, 45-, or 55-mile-per-hour pitched balls into an open field dotted with targets to distinguish home runs from sacrifice bunts. Decorated with grass and matted tee stations, the fully lit driving range outstretches in acres of grassy pastures, inviting golfers to whack Top-Flite Tour Range balls toward 10 target areas ($9.50/bucket). Fairway buffs curious to measure their driving mettle can swing their clubs from one of the 25 matted tee stations equipped with distance lasers aimed at targets.
