New: 9-Hole Put-Put Course
The Putt Putt center is a 9 hole course built in a natural woods setting and is fun for the whole family. Even though it is only a 9 hole course, it is larger than a lot of 18 hole courses you will see. Surrounded by limestone and a running spring with a waterfall. It is a great way to get the whole family involved in a activity of skill and luck. You may encounter some squirrels, and chipmunks but don’t worry, they are more than willing to let you play thru. Please note that if you are under the age of 14 you will need to be accompanied by an adult.
