Big news for Kyle. Texas! They will have not one, not two, but three opportunities for golfing! And each one has a unique theme. Meet the disc golf and two mini-golf establishments that are open or coming soon to Hays County.
Memorial Mini-Golf and WWII Museum
You get two cool things in one place at Memorial Mini-Golf and Museum in Buda (1710 Farm to Market 1626, Buda, TX 78610), which is fewer than 10 miles away from Kyle. The museum wants to educate people about the Greatest Generation. They believe that no other war in history affected the entire world like World War II did as the website says:
“It was people who knew the difference between right and wrong/good vs. evil uniting and not backing down. When the USA joined in the fight, our military was ranked #18 in the world…behind Romania.”
The museum wants to honor ordinary people who did the extraordinary. And at the same time, they want to give families a place to go to have fun. And that place is on their mini-golf course. The mini-golf course blends history with each hole dedicated to a veteran of WWII, Korean War, or Vietnam. See photos of the course on Memorial Mini-Golf and WWII Museum’s Facebook page.
The Flying Armadillo Disc Golf Course
Now for a mini-golf of a different kind. The Flying Armadillo Disc Golf Course (3115 Hilliard Rd., San Marcos, Texas) offers disc golf, which combines mini-golf with flying discs. Instead of relying on golf clubs, you trade them for a more powerful tool: your arm. You’ll throw frisbees across four acres of land trying to get them into the basket instead of a hole.
The Flying Armadillo has two 18-hole courses and practice baskets. They also have a family-friendly mini-course that’s a par 2. If throwing discs isn’t your thing, you can try your hand at shuffleboard, foosball, bocce ball, cornhole, or pool (the billiards kind). You can cheer for your companions by catching the action from an observation tower. For the latest news, visit the Flying Armadillo Disc Golf Club Facebook page.
Also in San Marcos within walking distance from Texas State University is the Putt Pub (307 S LBJ Dr., San Marcos, TX 78666). This one features an 18-hole mini-golf course filled with obstacles, games, and good vibes. The venue has two bars, indoor and outdoor seating, and food trucks.
Minors must be accompanied by an adult. The minimum age to play mini-golf is 16 with a guardian. To join the 21+ crowd, come after 6 pm. Check out the videos of the mini-golf course on Putt Pub’s Facebook page.
