There’s a cookbook author and food blogger I follow who’s recorded what she’s cooked or eaten for dinner every night for the past 25 years. Every night! On July 12, 1999, she and her boyfriend (now husband) dined on sour chicken stir fry in their Brooklyn Heights apartment. On September 11, 2001, for obvious reasons, she never made it home for dinner. On May 30, 2009, she served panko-crusted sole with chopped salad to her husband and two young daughters at their home in Westchester. And so on. When I first read about this, I couldn’t help but think about all the dinners I wanted to forget. Just last week I mixed up the salt and sugar in my grandmother’s spaghetti sauce recipe, rendering it inedible for everyone except my middle daughter who begged for seconds.
The weather outside may be frightful, but it’s always comfortable at our indoor golf locations!
Come and experience a premier indoor golf and entertainment facility using state-of-the-art simulators. Play-a-Round Golf is a place to play by yourself or with others. You can play amazing courses year-round in an indoor setting, including Pebble Beach and St. Andrews, to name a few.
With over 80 courses to play – plus games like darts, mini-golf, cornhole and others – reserve a simulator and say goodbye to winter blues!
No matter what the weather is like outside, you can get some rounds in. It’s a great way to improve your game and track your progress. Plus, it’s a lot of fun to hang out with friends.
Play-a-Round Golf is BYO beer and wine, and we have snacks, sodas and water onsite. You may order food from nearby eateries and they’ll deliver right to your simulator.
Inclement weather is never an issue inside a Play-a-Round Golf location. Our indoor golf facilities create one-of-a-kind experiences for adults and kids.
