Cincinnati Golf Center immerses visitors in practice for golf both miniature and normal-sized with 36 holes of mini golf as well as a grass tee area and a two-tier mat tee area. The two 18-hole mini-golf courses slink past obstacles such as water fountains, rocky areas, sloth-like groups ahead, and tricky upslopes and downslopes. A two-tier driving range features open air and covered mats and a natural grass area for players to hone their iron approaches and booming drives, while a pair of putting greens give them space to perfect long lags and tap-ins alike. With a heated bottom floor, customers can practice their golf game all year long.
Today?s Groupon combines the phosphorescence of glow-in-the-dark paint with golf and monsters: for $15, you get four rounds of mini golf at Monster Mini Golf ($5.50?$7.50 each depending on your height, which the Monster Mini Golf desk guards will use to guess your age). Use all four passes yourself, bring your family, or share them with friends you met online before meeting each other to play a best-of-seven series of Whodunit.
With its winding creek, cascading waterfall, and lush vegetation, Indian Trails Miniature Golf would be a peaceful place to spend an afternoon even if it didn't have a single hole of mini-golf. But of course, it has twin 18-hole links that snake along hills and rocky inclines. While navigating the landscape, golfers can cool down in the shade of foliage or listen as birds peck the course's 19th hole into a tree. Off the greens, the clubhouse staff serves up ice cream and hosts birthday parties replete with pizza, popcorn, and custom birthday golf balls.
Orchard Golf Center allows patrons to channel their inner Trevino on an illuminated outdoor miniature-golf course. Players can wind their way through 18 holes defended by mounds, curves, water hazards, and a confused hockey goalie. The miniature-golf course is well lit to accommodate evening bogey evaders and games played during total lunar eclipses. In addition to small-scale fairway festivities, Orchard Golf Center hosts a snack bar and a pro shop stocked with golf apparel and accouterments.
Ben and Ari's accommodates competitors of all levels with a full arcade and pizza kitchen flanked by two 18-hole miniature-golf courses. Both courses mimic the terrain of their larger long-game counterparts, but eschew the giant windmills in favor of dips, bends, and wandering streams that swallow wayward golf balls. The fairways also wind around the centerpiece of a working waterfall, which trickles in the background of live bands during summer festivals and fundraisers. During the winter months, players stay warm in the glow of the arcade, which houses 45 nonviolent video games that allow kids to enjoy simulated road races. The arcade also encompasses a pair of scaled-down bowling alleys that make strikes and spares a feasible goal for pint-sized rollers.
A pirate ship casts its shadow over the green corridors of Pirates? Cove mini golf course, setting the scene for golfers to enjoy a round of swashbuckling putt-putt. The 18-hole promenade also winds past geysers, waterfalls, and trickling streams.
