Sam also checked out some of the activities going on, including mini golf, rock climbing, food vendors, and much more fun for the whole family.

After racing some kids, the attention turned back to golf. Sam competed in a putting challenge followed by a chipping challenge that even great golfers can sometimes struggle with.

After a little playing, hunger began to kick in. Sam checked out the busiest spot, The Bears Smokehouse stand where you can buy something called the “mac attack with pulled pork”, and corn bread too.

After that, Sam got some ice cream and played a little mini golf!

He ended the day on a high note, climbing up to the top of a rock climbing wall.

The food costs money, but all the activities are free!
