Golf is among the many things that becomes more enjoyable when shrunken, much like schnauzers, laptops, and electricity bills. Downsize a classic game and increase amusement with today’s Groupon: for $7, you get all-day miniature-golf passes for two at Adventure Falls (a $16 value), located at the Lake Reba Recreation Complex in Richmond.
The 18-hole mini-golf course at Adventure Falls weaves through panoramic fields, around lily-pad-filled ponds, and past a 40-foot waterfall with an overlooking deck, setting a scenic stage for challenging tournaments. The first 10 holes of the 18 are ADA-accessible, and many boast tee-off challenges such as water obstacles and the heckling ghost of Sam Snead. With all-day passes for two, mini-golf enthusiasts can play an unlimited number of games, honing their swings, settling long-standing sibling rivalries, or letting dad win with a Father’s Day handicap. After golfing arms grow weary, players can explore the lush Lake Reba and see the park’s walking trails, fishing lake, and playground while reliving the glory of a game-winning hole-in-one or an effective heckling face.
