Daily mini golf maxes out summer fun

Summer fun is cranking up at River View Miniature Golf Course.

And every day is special at River View, thanks to daily Putt-n-Save discounts and deals.

Mondays and Tuesdays are Wooden Nickel days, when each round of miniature golf bought earns a chance to grab a Wooden Nickel from the pro shop’s prize board. Redeemable for prizes such as a free round of mini golf or a treat from the refreshment stand, Wooden Nickels never grow old.

“The fun thing about Wooden Nickels is that they never expire, so someone who digs one out of their treasure chest at home from a few years ago can still bring it back and use it this season,” said Katie Miller, assistant superintendent of recreation.

Wednesdays should be renamed Wet Days in honor of River View’s riverside activities. There is no better way to explore the scenic Fox River than by renting a pedal boat or kayak. And at only $12 an hour on Wednesdays, this $5 financial savings can float many a fine summer afternoon.

“You get a unique perspective of Pottawatomie Park and downtown St. Charles from out on the river,” Miller said. “It’s like a whole different world.” U.S. Coast Guard-approved life vests are required for all riders, and can be obtained at the Pro Shop.

Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays are all about family at River View Miniature Golf. Grandparents play for free with the regular paid admission of a grandchild – a nice turn of events for Nana and Pop-Pop for a change! While Mom and Dad run some errands or grab a quiet lunch on their own, grandparents and grandchildren can come out on Thursdays and get in some quality time on the course.

Friday nights, the whole family can sweeten up the fun with a free ice cream treat from the refreshment stand with every regular price admission.

And that great tradition of Saturday Night Date Night continues at River View Miniature Golf with special pricing on a round of golf. Whether you’re current high school sweethearts or Silver Anniversary celebrants, the combination of the tranquil river, beautifully landscaped grounds and the chance for bragging rights on an elusive hole-in-one can make for a memorable evening.
