Miniature golf eschews many of the dangers of larger golf, such as industrial-size windmills, sand-trap deserts, and clubhouses filled with giants. Stick to your short game with today's Groupon: for $12, you get four rounds of 18-hole miniature golf at The Greens at Brock in Thorold (up to a $26 value).
The Greens at Brock's multipurpose grounds summon golfers of all experience levels and ambitions to a short par 58 executive course, practice putting greens, and sheltered driving stations. Miniature golf draws players down to a proudly petite par 70 putting course, where scale crowds cheer them through par 3, 4, and 5 greens. Golfers tap shots from professional style tee-off markers toward flag sticks in four rounds of matches, rematches, and vendettas. Blaze tiny trails through sharp doglegs, realistic sand traps, wide water hazards, and gridlocked mouse highways on shrink-zapped full-course level greens. The Greens at Brock also keeps a flock of professionals on-staff to give game-invigorating lessons.
The Greens at Brock
The Greens at Brock's par 58 executive course packs 18 holes of diverse obstacles into a dynamic, 3,000-yard layout. Alongside the course rests an expansive driving range with covered and open-air stalls and hitting areas blanketed with natural grass, turf, and retro shag carpet. After fine-tuning tee shots, golfers can stroll over to the facility's tiki bar festooned with sand beaches, a waterfall, and vegetation including tropical plants, palm trees, and cacti that also line the course.
