The famous fairways at Doral, Sawgrass, and Pebble Beach that make avid golfers salivate are assembled in one place at Lancaster Golf Center, though with one key difference—they’re in miniature. The lilliputian course eschews the windmills and lava pits of normal mini-golf links for smaller replicas of full-sized bunkers and water hazards. Nearby, the center’s driving range challenges golfers to take more forceful swings. Its 78 hitting stations unfurl both natural grass and artificial turf, and there is cover and heating for winter practice as well as illumination for night or when everyone is wearing really dark sunglasses. The practice area also boasts an 8,500-square-foot putting green, a chipping area, and a sand bunker.
Golfers start keeping score at Lancaster's nine-hole executive course, especially at its fifth, sixth, and seventh holes, which compose an Amen Corner that claims 526 of the course’s 1,057 yards. Before trekking across the fairways, players can hone their form during lessons
with teaching professionals Dennis Lanciani and Jim Cronin, who boast more than 43 years of combined experience teaching golfers not to illegally attach wings to their balls. As the instructors offer advice, students’ children can entertain themselves at nine batting cages or with bank-shot basketball. Before heading home, visitors of all ages can enjoy a frozen treat from the center's stock of Richardson’s Ice Cream.
Inspired by her passion for creating decadent treats for her friends and family, baker Gloria Castaño opened Sweet Creations by Gloria as a way to share her signature desserts with others. From these modest beginnings, her bakery has risen in popularity and earned local renown for its made-from-scratch cakes and pastries. Though Gloria’s specialty lies in traditional Hispanic confections, she can just as easily recreate recipes from other cultures or accommodate dietary restrictions with vegan and gluten-free ingredients. A frequent shopper at the local farmers' market, Gloria fills her customizable cakes, cupcakes, and cake pops with fresh fruit whenever possible and slathers buttercream icing on bland stalks of broccoli.
Ellen Fay spent nearly 20 years of experience as a professional baker before opening her small shop. Now at Aunty Ellen’s Creative Confections, she prepares fresh cookies, brownies, and cannoli every day. Her specialty treat is carrot cake stuffed with bits of carrot, pineapple, coconut, and a secret ingredient that’s written on the recipe card in invisible ink. Ellen recently told the Leominster Champion, “I want everyone to try my carrot cake…I want to retire on my carrot cake.”
Her bright pink and green bakery is inspired by Bermuda, a place she visited often as a child. Inside, a small seating area surrounds chilled display cases stocked with colorful cookies and cupcakes.
