Miniature versions often present significant advantages—take the TV version of Honey, I Shrunk the Kids, the running time of which perfectly matches the average time between sour gummy worm cravings. Shrink your golf game down to size with today's Groupon: for $10, two people get 18 holes of glow-in-the-dark mini golf (up to a $21 value) at Putting Edge’s location at Hoffman Village Shopping Center in Hoffman Estates or at Norridge Common Shopping Center in Norridge.
Putting Edge tantalizes golfers with a brightly glowing course boasting an interior psychedelicized with vivid reds, yellows, blues, and greens. Cheerful tunes reverberate throughout the darkened golf world as you and a fellow putt-putter putter your way through 18 holes ($10.50 per player for ages 13 and older, $8.50 per player for ages 12 and under) of luminous link-play. The course's challenging holes are guarded by an assortment of pink flamingoes, radiant red monkeys, orange octopi, luminescent jaguars, and the ghosts of caddies dipped in toxic waste. Turn off the lights and allow nature's artificial glows to shine forth—cleansing your body from the skin damage caused by man-made illumination—with 18 holes of golf for two at Putting Edge.

- this is an awesome cheap date idea that’s great for trash-talking conversation and stoking the competitive spirit in both of you – Will, Cheap Date Ideas
- Our trip to Putting Edge was perfect for a rainy day, but would also be good for a scorcher day when all you want to do is stand in a fridge. The glow-in-the-dark aspect made mini-golf even more fun. – She, Things to do for Two
Glowing monkeys scamper toward a neon waterfall, and a knight bearing a radiant yellow lance rides past a bright orange octopus emerging from the ocean. What appears to be a time-traveling session gone awry is really the evolving environment within Putting Edge’s indoor black-lit mini-golf course, which whisks players to deep seas, Aztec jungles, and medieval times. Since opening its original location in Canada, Putting Edge has now expanded to 16 North American locations, all of which invite guests onto its challenging 18-hole courses to seek victory over opponents and the forces that keep their teeth from not glowing as brightly as they could. Elsewhere, the facility houses private party rooms, concessions, and an arcade filled with gamer favorites such as air hockey.
