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.
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.
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.
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.
Set up along verdant forests, mountains, and valleys, Kentucky Action Park's outdoor attractions bring elements of the old-timey Wild West to the modern-day sense of adventure. The winding turns of an alpine slide send sleds on exhilarating quarter-mile trips down the mountain, and putters propel colorful orbs across 18 western-themed mini-golf holes. Chair lifts and a 24-foot rock wall tower overhead, the top of which grant scenic views typically seen only by birds and children holding many balloons. Elsewhere, horses trot out of the Jesse James Riding Stables, which has been in operation for more than 30 years. At Outlaw Cave, guided tours travel below ground to view stalactites and rock formations sculpted by the patience of water over the past millennia.
