Grand Old Golf and Go Karts adds a Tennessee twist to its spread of family-friendly activities. The grounds feature four different miniature golf courses, each one professionally landscaped to reflect Tennessee's natural terrain. One course, for instance, wends it way over a rock formation complete with river and waterfall, challenging players with tricky changes in elevation that recall the Appalachians. Another course forces players to putt across precarious bridges without railings and risk plopping the ball into the tiny rivers that criss-cross beneath. The newest location features Nashville's only indoor black light mini golf course, lit just like the ancient nightclubs hidden in the state's many caves.
Miniature golf only comprises one half of the entertainments available, though. The titular go kart course offers high speed excitement with extremely tight turns. The karts themselves come in varieties to seat one or two people, allowing the entire family to get in on the fun even if they can't drive. The property even includes an old barn lined with arcade and prize-redemption games instead of livestock and hay.
Drakes Creek Activity Center entreats groups and families to explore its numerous, family-friendly activities. Nine batting cages hold batters as they practice their homeruns, as an 18-hole mini-golf course strewn with fountains challenges putters. Meanwhile, an outdoor laser-tag area spans five acres, as others sup on soft serve or play aeroball, a mix between volleyball and basketball played on trampolines.
Shielded from the elements, customers at Glowgolf traverse the course’s 18 holes of indoor miniature golf amid an extraterrestrial neon glow. Vivid murals of jungle and underwater scenes adorn the course’s walls, with giraffes, zebras, and otherworldly creatures serenely coexisting. The course itself brims with potted plants and decorative treasure chests along with traditional mini-golf obstacles such as loop-the-loop ramps and water traps filled with live sharks.
Doing well in sports is all a matter of practice and golf is no exception. At Otte Golf Center in Bowling Green, practicing golf is easy and fun.
Parking is plentiful, so guests can feel free to bring their vehicles.
Glowing boundary rails line the pitch-black corridors of Lunar Mini Golf's putting surfaces, guiding mini golfers and their orbs across a black-lit dreamscape surrounded by neon flourishes. As players attempt to sink hole-in-ones, the vibrant course thwarts their efforts with topsy-turvy surfaces, jutting ridges, and a gallery of luminous animals and bug-eyed aliens whispering commentary from inside the walls. Guests can become mobile accoutrements in the phosphorescent scenery by snagging necklaces and other glow-in-the-dark knickknacks available for sale, helping players identify opponents' movements and accentuate celebratory dances with glow-stick flair. The course's darkened alleys provide fun, casual outings for players of all abilities, as well as an eclectic venue for the birthday parties of future adults.
