Within the 14-acre Yorktown Golf and Baseball Center, golf nuts and sandlot sultans hone their craft one fun, low-pressure practice shot at a time. With a large bucket of range balls, driver devotees receive 119 dimpled orbs that obediently await their time cruise out of 1 of 36 covered stalls and into the verdant bull’s-eye of a target green. The 18-hole mini-golf course unveils a challenging putter’s paradise featuring testy slopes, green-side ponds, and misting waterfalls ideal for rinsing away mascara very slowly.
Each patron also receives 13 batting-cage tokens, each good for 16 pitches in one of the Center’s eight batting cages. The four softball cages deliver globules to the strike zone in an arc trajectory or as 40 mph, 45 mph, and 60 mph heaters, and the robotic baseball hurlers pound the hitting zone with stitched spheres that travel 45 mph, 55 mph, 65 mph, and 85 mph, and can exceed the speed of light when southpaw cyborgs feel that a batter has shown them up.
Though Yorktown Golf and Baseball Center sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
Yorktown Golf & Baseball Center
Yorktown Golf & Baseball Center is best described by its sounds: the whiffing of clubs on the driving range, the steely rattling of baseballs on batting-cage walls, and the gentle burbling of the mini-golf course's waterfalls. Surrounded by verdant greenery, the 14-acre sports center offers outlets for competitive players and casual ball-whackers alike, beginning with an 18-hole mini-golf course replete with obstacles such as waterways and feral know-it-all golf pros. Within the four baseball and softball batting cages, pitches hurl toward batters at speeds ranging from 40 mph to 85 mph. Practice shots soar from the two-tiered driving range's 36 covered hitting stations, and players hone their short games on the putting greens and sand traps. In addition to providing ample practice opportunities, the center staffs a stable of knowledgeable golfers and batters to lead private and semiprivate lessons and curate a full pro shop.
