Just as in tennis, high-profile criminal trials, and kindergarten-graduation ceremonies, audiences at golf matches are asked to hold their applause and fiery rioting until the event’s end. Enjoy the thrill of golf without the perils of its fans with today’s Groupon. For $12, you get a round of mini golf for four people at Twin Brook Golf Center in Tinton Falls (a $24 value).
A putt-heavy microcosm set smack in the middle of the sprawling Twin Brooks Golf Center, the manicured mini-golf course offers 18 holes of exciting, varied terrain. The petite playing field is loaded with obstacles for all ages and skill levels, with carefully designed caverns and free-flowing waterfalls conspiring to prevent multicolored balls from settling into holed homes. Great for competitive double dates or a family activity less controversial than window-shopping for puppies, Twin Brooks' miniature golf provides oversized fun by way of a shrunken-down sport.
