I play here quite a bit over the summer, since it is open to the public, and has good rates for juniors (18$ weekday afternoons) and for anyone after 5 PM (18$, but usually only get in 9 holes). It has two consideralby difficult courses (if you dont know the ins and outs), so your score card may be higher than you're used to but most often this just adds to the fun. One of the courses is very hilly, so you can get a pretty good workout by walking it.
Okay, maybe if you're just learing to swing the club you should play here, but otherwise I advise you to stay away and go to the driving range if you are on a budget. The 10$ it costs to play the 9 hole "course" ( if I could call it that) may seem cheap for golf but is not a good deal (it's more that 1$ a hole). My backyard would make a better hole than anywhere on this course. You may end up playing terrible just because you'll never have an adequate lie after teeing off.
Although this place is extremely nice, it is a private club and you either have to be a member or know someone who belong here to play the course. Playing a round of golf here, though, may not be worth the price if you have the chance. It is very expensive, and the area is filled with courses that boast better rates and roughly the same playing experience.
Located right off Route 20 in Marlborough, this place is easy to get to and closer than any other place around. The place has many flaws though. First of all, NEVER pay to play mini golf here. The course is not worth playing as it is torn up and all-around crummy. You could built an equally good course in your driveway. Second, their driving range is alright I guess, but very rarely are there two mats in a row with non-broken tees that you have to switch yourself. That's my 2cents.
My buddies and I hit up Wayland Golf occaisionally. When we do we play the evening rates during the summer. After 5 PM its very reasonable. Otherwise, the full price green fee is too high for this course. I find the place too easy. Limited space forced them to create 18 straight away holes, which are cramped right next to each other so your ball may find itself on another fairway a couple times per round. Well kept course, though, and great for improving your game.
Although this is a far drive from my house, it is worth the trip once in a while. This place really has everything. For food, they have some of the best ice cream I've ever had, and they have an awesome outdoor grille for lunch in the summer. They also have an awesome mini-golf course and an exceptional 9 hole pitch-n-putt (par 3 course). To sum up, there's lots of fun to be had here.
What I like about going to CompUSA is that you are free to peruse through any section and not feel pressured or crowded. The place is never really packed compared to similar stores like Best Buy, and the sales people leave you alone if thats what you want. In addition, the Sunday flier for CompUSA often has good Mail in rebate offers that allow you to get items much cheaper than anywhere else.
After eating here recently, my stomach is satisfied. Their medium size sandwich filled me up perfectly (and tasted great I might add), while not costing me too much. I ordered the new Big Papi, which is promoted by Red Sox slugger David Ortiz. What I really like about this place is their coupons. Every once in a while I come across a good coupon that lures me in to the place to buy lunch. Most recently I clipped out a 2$ off coupon on any sandwich.
I'll sum up my review with a story: One day I run out of computer paper and am driving to Staples to get some when a sign catches my attention ("The Paper Store"). This is more convenient than my planned destination so I enter the store, which I had never been in before, and I immediately become dizzy from the nausiatingly-strong potpourri odor. The store is filled with women; not one guy in sight. I look around for a few minutes and the only paper I see is in the form of Hallmark cards. Now get this, when I ask a girl working there if they have actual paper, she thinks for a minute and says "I'm not sure" (I eventually find it, though) Thanks for the help, Paper Store
Generally, the new game selection and pricing will be the same as any other video game retailer. As for used games, EB Games has a huge selection and frequent price drops. As an added plus, you can trade in your games that you are done playing for store credit. Also, they hire employees who actually know what their talking about unlike many larger chains.
