Owner description: Where can you find all the best parts of traditional golf, mini golf, and croquet? Destroyer Park Golf, of course! If you've never played park golf, you're in for a treat. The sport originated in Japan in 1983, and is played with one club and one ball. The rules are simple, the cup is larger, the average hole length is about 60 yards, and the course is gorgeous and green. The result? Park golf is fun for folks of all ages and skill levels -- perfect for a Saturday afternoon, birthday party, or team-building event. Venture onto our grounds, and you might even meet our namesake, Dick "The Destroyer" Beyer himself. (A local hero, wrestling legend, and park golf enthusiast, there's no one quite like Dick.) We're proud to be the first park golf course in the U.S., and we can't wait to welcome new parkers to join us!

Here's a totally different links experience, based on a the design popular in Japan, where land is at more of a premium... Shorter holes (40 to 100 yards), larger ball (a bit larger than a handball, and hard), one club serving as both driver and putter... it is not as easy as it seems, about 90 per cent golf, 10 per cent croquet, operated by retired professional wrestler Dick "The Destroyer" Beyer who is almost always on the country-estate property, ready to join in... also on site: a wrestling museum... This is a good man, a good course and a fun day out, 18 holes requiring perhaps an hour and a half at a fee of $8
