Boomer’s – Boca Raton, FL

Played on December 29, 2016

Reviewed by the Pink Putter

I had known about Boomer’s as a large, south Florida entertainment complex for years, but had never been. The place is massive and houses a Go-Karts, 2 outdoor mini golf courses, bumper cars, bumper boats, a rock wall, lazer tag, batting cages and an arcade. On a hot afternoon, we went out for a round.

Rating:

Par – As one would expect from most things that are part of a larger chain establishment,  the mini golf itself was just average. Large playing areas, water features and sloped terrains made up for the course’s aging turf and lack of character. Obnoxious, unsupervised children rushed in front of us, beating up parts of the course with their clubs as they went. It should be no surprise that the key offender was the friend of a kid sporting a bright red “Make America Great Again” cap. So between the kids and the hot afternoon sun, I was losing my patience with Boomer’s. Perhaps giving this place a shot on quiet weekday night would have changed my attitude.

Upper right corner is the aforementioned obnoxious group of kids playing behind us. You can see one in the friend group wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat and his friend needlessly destroying the fence next to the whole.
