Mini Golf Fun for Family and Friends
Looking for an affordable tropical adventure the whole family can enjoy? Set sail for Jefferson Falls Miniature Golf Course at Jefferson District Park in Falls Church. The newly-renovated mini golf course features a misty, tropical wildlife theme complete with a palm tree, an alligator head and swans.
"My 4-year-old daughter loves the waterfall and stream on hole number 14," assistant manager Jon Casey said. "Also, I think it gives her a sense that she can do something that Daddy does, too, and that is to play golf."
Casey says the adventure at Jefferson District Park inspires players of all ages. "I remember one day a number of high school swim teams showed up right at the same time, which was an unexpected surprise," he said. We also see college students, especially in the early evening, and senior citizens enjoy the game at various times during the day – sometimes with their children and their grandchildren. It's really heartwarming to see them having so much fun."
It takes about an hour to play the mini golf course's 18 holes, after which players can have their pick of the park's other amenities: a picnic area, a playground, basketball and tennis courts and a beautiful nine-hole executive golf course. Beverages and ice cream are available for purchase at the mini golf course, and hot dogs and other lunch items are available at the snack bar in the nearby clubhouse. It's a great way to celebrate summer and stay close to home!
