Marred by bird attacks, sand traps made from cost-cutting quicksand, and texting-induced cart accidents, golf has surpassed lava surfing and equestrian water polo in annual sports injuries. Solidify your short game in a safe indoor environment with today’s Groupon: for $12, you get two rounds of black-light mini golf for two at Pirate Mini Golf in Marion (a $24 value).
Pirate Mini Golf's 18-hole indoor course ensures a playful black-lit background stays aglow during each round played on its little links. An ideal setting for casual 101st dates or discussing high-risk business ventures, the pirate-themed course gives a pair of visiting golfers the chance to putt their way past fluorescent windmills, lighthouses, and castles until reaching the mythical skull and crossbones. Busy parents can opt to stay at home to finish next year's taxes or rotate the tires, sending the kids off for an afternoon of golf lite that will help them perfect their swing and learn to sink putts in the dark.
