Mini Golf

I see there's a Groupon for Embassy Mini Golf in San Antonio. Our party of three adult are visiting the area later this month and we like to play mini golf. Is this a good place? Also, we're staying downtown and I wondered how far this might be? We will have a car and will be out and about.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Embassy Mini Golf is just north of the airport off Hwy 281. Easy drive from downtown but a bit of a way out, 12 miles (20-30 min) depending upon traffic. Never been so can't comment on the quality of the facility.

Thanks for that info and that link. Sounds like its a pretty good mini golf. Let me ask this. Is there any mini golf in the downtown area or nearer to downtown?

Thanks in advance.

I've bought the Groupon. So, if we head that way one afternoon or evening to play mini golf, can anyone recommend somewhere good for a casual dinner; perhaps something we won't find in the downtown area. Also, is there anything else to see or do in that area?

I'd head back towards downtown via 281, exit right on Hildebrand..go west and then turn left onto Blanco for Chris Madrid's hamburgers

to the west of the mini golf is a Wing Stop, going a little north (road behind) towards the bowling center you have Mexican-El Jarro

or

EZs Hamburgers, pizza from brick oven

across the freeway is Luby's Cafetaria

on 410 at North Star Mall is a Cheesecake Factory

behind North Star Mall is Sea Island ( a SA institution)

lots of choices

Magnolia pancake house http://www.magnoliapancakehaus.com/ is right there - you might consider it for lunch or big breakfast/brunch before golf.

Guajillos is nearby http://www.guajillos.com/ great Mexican food.

I also love Teka Molino http://www.tekamolino.com/ on San Pedro near Northstar Mall.

Let us know how it is after you play. I love mini golf and we go to San Antonio frequently. I've been thinking of looking for a place, especially since I'm likely to be there a few weeks on our next visit.

Thanks for the great suggestions!

Wolfie, you might want to check out that Groupon. It must be purchased in the next couple of days, but its good for a few months. You get four games for $15 and they can be used by one or multiple people. We figure that's a pretty good price and we don't have much to lose by buying it.
