What would a minigolf course be without larger than life attractions like a big fiberglass T-Rex?

In the 50s and 60s, minigolf boomed as both a roadside attraction and fun recreational activity. During that time, zany statues and sculptures were synanomous with courses. Today, especially in tourist destinations, plenty of minigolf operations still use huge fiberglass sculptures to draw folks and add a bit of enchantment to their courses. 

While Chip's Clubhouse was not around in the 1950s and 1960s, it certainly celebrates that estetic and history! Chip's Clubhouse features a 7-foot-tall Tyrannosaurus Rex, Chip, at the enterance of its 18-hole miniature golf course. Patrons visting this Northeast Ohio establishment will encounter Chip and other prehistoric friends at various spots on the picturesque course.

Thursdays in September and October at Chip's Clubhouse! It's time to "Give & Golf"!

We are so exited to announce a new initiative we’re going to take on in the “fall” months. Everything Thursday in September and October will be part of what we’re calling “Give & Golf". 

In the months of September and October last year, we were only open on the weekends… Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays. This year, we wanted to add another day; but also have that extra day provide something else other than another opportunity to play minigolf! So for every round of minigolf that folks play on these Thursdays, we’ll be giving $2 dollars to a local organization. The entities we’ll be supporting this year are The Ox Shoppe, Womensafe, SubZero Mission, Geauga Hunger Task Force, Lax-Abled, and the Snowbelt Musical Arts Association. We are really excited to work with these awesome organizations in our community!

It seems as though much of what was enjoyed in the past will eventually come back into style. For today's article, we're going to examine one of the most influential films of all time; The Karate Kid.

The Karate Kid is a 1984 film starring Ralph Macchio, Pat Morita, Elisabeth Shue, and William Zabka. The movie tells the story of an earnest teen in a new town who learns karate in order to defend himself from some of his more viscious (and well trained) peers. Audiences fell in love with adolescent Daniel LaRusso, who must seek the help of the wise Mr. Miyagi, a peace-loving marital arts master. Miyagi's teachings center on patience and "balance", lessons we could all probably stand to learn a little from.
