Extreme heat and rain in the months of June and part of July is making it hard for the people at Green Acres to maintain a consistent visitor flow.   But when it’s 90+ degrees outside or raining (for 40 days and 40 nights it seems like) it’s hard to get up and on to the green for some putting fun.

In business since 1955, Green Acres (located on 905 Todd Drive) offers a retro golf style course that isn’t like any other in town.  Although it doesn’t have the arcade or bumper cars, it focuses more on THE game and offers more of a challenge for young golfers than the newer designs most of us have gotten use to.  After two weeks of raining a few weeks ago, Green Acres re-opened to be greeted by some Church groups and several families who waited to play through the course as those in front of them shot their bright-colored golf balls into the hole.  Their business, like of those nationally–thrive in the summer and likewise suffers at least a little bit when mother nature doesn’t cooperate.  The hotter it gets, the more people are reluctant to play.

Miniature golf is a great, affordable entertainment outlet close to home.  At $4-$5 dollars a head (kids/adults) you can enjoy a 18-hole outing that can last at least a few hours if played with a big group.  Manager Rudy Ramos says that Green Acres will be open through November, and so there is still plenty of time to practice your swing (or your child’s swing) and contribute to a local business.
