The Dayton area is home to plenty of quality entertainment options, and if you are in the mood for some miniature golf, the most difficult choice may be deciding what theme you prefer: Castles, Farms or the Caribbean.
The Magic Castle
Winner of the Best of Dayton in the Miniature Golf Category, this 18-hole course is just one of the many family-themed offerings at the facility. The recently redesigned and upgraded course is filled with castles. Beautiful stands of grass and flowers accent the theme.
One of the appeals to younger children is the variety of color choices for both the putter and the golf balls. Prices start at $2.50 per game.
The facility also includes:
- Snack stand
- Batting cages
- Bouncy room
- Water balloon launching game
If you have children 2 and under, visit Monday through Thursday and they can play free.
Udders & Putters
Travel east 25 minutes to Young’s Dairy Farm for a day of great food, ice cream and putt-putt golf. The aptly named Udders & Putters is actually two 18-hole golf courses that your family is sure to enjoy. The first course was built in the early 90s and due to the popularity of the course a second one was added in 2000.
The course is farm-themed and reasonably priced at $5 a game for 5-11 year olds and $6 for 12 years and older. Play both courses at the same time to save a few dollars or play before 6 p.m. to save an additional dollar per game (Monday -Fridays only). Children ages 4 and under pay $1.50.
Located on the Young’s Dairy complex, the facility also offers:
- Batting cages
- Driving range
- Ice cream shop and restaurant
- Large slide
- Petting Zoo
For a tropical beach paradise theme, head north 10 minutes to Putters Par-adise at the Englewood Fun Center in Englewood. With waterfalls, ponds and Caribbean music you will want to drape a Hawaiian lei around your neck as you head onto the challenging and enjoyable 18-hole course.
Facility offers discounted rates for groups with 20 or more players and children ages 2 and under are free with a paid round of golf. Prices start at $5 per game. Open Friday through Sunday.
