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.
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.
The telltale sounds of fun fill the air at either Magic Mountain Fun Center location, as friends and families careen around tracks in go-karts, compete on mind-bending mini-golf courses, or do battle in bumper cars. Piping-hot pizzas fuel days of rides and arcade games, and the park's varied birthday packages catapult parties into a fun-filled gamut of feasting, bumper boats, and laser tag. Open late, the parks afford guests the opportunity to while the night away or lure their night terrors in front of a speeding bumper car.
A total of 120 tees?80 grass, 40 covered?await golfers at Westerville Golf Center, each ready for practicing booming drives, gracefully arcing iron shots, and finely tuned wedge play. Founded in 1970, this driving range specializes in helping players perfect their game before they head out onto a golf course?or, if they can't perfect it on their own, matching them up with PGA-certified instructors who can offer some assistance. Alternatively, visitors who don't derive enjoyment from hitting a crisp drive or stabbing the ground repeatedly with a pointy tee, can grab a baseball bat for some swings in the batting cages or pick up a putter for a round on the 18-hole miniature golf course.
Sculpted through a quaint, quiet 300-acre plot, Greentree Golf Club garnishes the hills of Warren County with nine holes that yield a tranquil golfing experience. Jodi Kinney, one of just six female golf-course architects in the nation, designed the course in 1999 and made it approachable for golfers of all skill levels by incorporating four sets of tees. To score anywhere near the par of 36, players must steer their shots down tunnels of bluegrass fairways cleaved between the outstretched limbs of towering trees. After reaching the bent-grass greens, players can putt confidently knowing they avoided the quicksand bunkers. On the scenic layout, players may encounter deer frolicking in the pastures or counting mulligans on their antlers.
