Before miniature golf, mankind's only uses for black lights were checking clothes for excess lint and warding off shadow puppets. Use light's full potential with today's Groupon: for $10, you get 18 holes of glow-in-the-dark mini golf for two people and two glow bracelets at Putting Edge (up to a $21 value). Though rates vary depending on age ($8.50 for golfers 12 and under; $10.50 for golfers 13 and older), this offer bestows a significant savings for duos of all ages.
Putting Edge's phosphorescent indoor mini-golf course challenges the eyes, ears, and short-game prowess of players of all ages. The 18-hole course confronts club wielders with twists and turns amid a glowing battleground populated by painted neon trees, glowing statues, and iridescent wildlife conservationists. Upbeat music channels players' adrenalin as they expertly navigate their way through the incandescent irrigation routes and prove to competitors that their putting skills, like the bottom of Lake Michigan and Celine Dion's hair, are untouchable. Both golfers are equipped with a glow bracelet that shines as brightly as the course's black-lit critters, ensuring that no visitors are hazed by glowing parakeets. Though not included in this Groupon, players may also hone joystick skills and grapple for prizes at Putting Edge's arcade. The glow-in-the-dark atmosphere encourages friendly competition for players of all fitness levels, birthday parties, and group gatherings.
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. All 15 North American locations invite guests onto its challenging indoor 18-hole courses to seek victory over their opponents. Elsewhere, each facility houses private party rooms, concessions, and an arcade filled with gamer favorites.
