Humanity created golf and baseball as an excuse to strike white orbs, sublimating its desire to strike back at the moon for manipulating the tides. Exercise lunar aggressions with today's Groupon to the Severna Park Golf Center in Arnold. Choose between the following options:
- For $10, you get $20 worth of mini golf, driving-range time, or a round of golf on the 9-hole, par 3 golf course.
- For $6, you get $12 worth of ballpark-style batting practice.
Severna Park Golf Center houses a variety of activities that let families fill an afternoon belting balls. Adults ($8) and children 12 and under ($6) can precisely putt their way through the Lilliputian links winding around an 8-foot waterfall on the 18-hole mini-golf course. A 9-hole, par 3 course gives full-size chippers an opportunity to practice short-game situations during abbreviated rounds ($11–$12.50).
Alternately, dust off dormant drivers by launching buckets of dimpled orbs ($7 for 50 balls, $10 for 100, and $12 for 150) from the fresh hitting mats on the driving range. Fifteen of the 44 stations are covered and heated, allowing golfers to practice their backswings no matter how high or low the temperatures seesaw this spring. The expansive fields also house ballpark-style batting for claustrophobic sluggers unable to find their swings in cramped cages or abandoned mine shafts. This variation of batting practice ($5 for 35 pitches, $9 for 70, and $12 for 105) mimics actual baseball, so hitters can call their shots and rush the mound if the pitching machine tries to hit them.
