You can walk or you can rent a cart. After you've sunk that hole in one, you can enjoy a nice meal at the restaurant in the club.
Biking to Devil's Punchbowl
After you’ve gotten some cardio in, you can head over to the Brickyard Course to play a relaxing game of frisbee golf. Frisbee golf is similar to regular golf in that there is 18 baskets (holes). The only difference is that you are trying to throw a frisbee into a basket instead of hitting a ball into a hole. You and your group of friends can share in some great memories and lots of laughs as you move from basket to basket. Frisbee golf is a game where you can go at your own pace, allowing for couples to enjoy each other’s company and get to know each other a little better. So bring your own frisbee or buy one at Simple Sports downtown, and get golfing!
