Where do you see yourself in five years? Okay, in two years? Next month? Okay, okay, where do you see yourself this weekend? How about putting 18 holes at one of these fine minigolf destinations in southeast Michigan?
Located in its title city, Royal Oak Golf Center sports a mountain-themed minigolf course with 18 holes. Royal Oak Golf Center calls its course “undeniably the most challenging minigolf course in SE Michigan.” You’ll just have to tee up in Royal Oak to find out. Adult passes to 18 holes cost $6.75. For children ages 4-12 and seniors ages 60 and over it will cost $4.75. Royal Oak Golf Center also has a party tent that seats up to 70 people, if you’re planning a birthday party or office outing.
Sport-n-Fun in Farmington Hills has not one, not two, but three 18-hole putting courses to test your putting skills. What makes Sport-n-Fun’s courses good for family outings is the varying degrees of difficulty. All three courses have holes that range in difficulty from easy to hard, presenting the right challenge for all skill levels. Sport-n-Fun has several different passes available for purchase, including all day passes on Mondays and Thursdays that allow you to play to your heart’s content all day long.
Arrrr, matey! How do yer feel about pirates? Midway Sports & Entertainment in Taylor has two Caribbean-themed 18-hole putting courses with waterfalls, palm trees, rivers, a pirate ship and a volcano. 18 holes will run you $6 per person ($4 for children five and under and seniors) with the option to replay a course for $2. Additionally, there is no “gate charge” for entering the park. If you are not participating in any of the activities, like minigolf, there is no charge.
Having been around since 1967, Garden City Miniature Golf has provided family fun for decades in the form of an 18-hole course that is designed to be fun for all ages and degrees of skill. As with Midway, GCMG offers $2 replays for those who want another go at the course. On top of that, the winner in every group of four, as well as anyone that gets a hole-in-one on the last hole wins a free game.
