Your child might be just a tad too young for the driving range or the nearby course for pros, but that doesn’t mean they (and you!) can’t enjoy the fun of their own putting green at a local mini-golf course.

A glow-in-the-dark course filled with neon colors and spooky characters is perfect for all ages, and offers an indoor experience for rainy days.
