River View Miniature Golf Course is an 18 hole, par 42 course with nine ADA-designated holes to accommodate wheelchair access. Several of the holes have two cups, which make the difficult greens a little easier for children (and the young-at-heart looking for the easy way out). All of the greens are naturally landscaped with native grasses and flowering perennials. Bricks delineate each green, and concrete paths provide walkways between the holes. Interesting features found among the holes include a water wheel, miniature windmill, flowing waterfall and sand traps. Hole 18 features a large lighthouse with an automatic ball return. After playing a round, you can enjoy a treat from the refreshment stand while relaxing in the Victorian-style gazebo on the shore of the beautiful Fox River. If you don’t want the fun to end after your refreshments, you can rent a pedal boat or canoe and traverse the Fox River for an hour. Nearby amenities include a nine-hole (full-size) golf course, tennis courts, ball fields, two outdoor swimming pools, and a community center.
