Three different golfing experiences allow both serious and less experienced golfers a place to co-mingle: a driving range, mini-golf and a fully lit par-3 course. Each of the nine holes on the course are replicas of famous par-3 golf holes at well-known golf courses around the country. Except here, of course, the game is also played at night under lights.
