Hot spots for summertime fun, the Valley’s mini-golf courses offer challenging — and wacky — entertainment

Yummies Ice Cream & Mini-Golf Café
This, ahem, diamond in the rough is ensconced on a single acre along an otherwise uninspiring stretch of Route 299. The course, which co-owner Anne Spero helped design, features a series of unique and varied challenges, including the jump across the stream, the tombstone hazard, and the trademark triple-dip. The well-arrayed clubhouse is known as the Log Cabin, but looks more like a ski lodge or a Swiss chalet. Here you can play board games and nosh on eats of a magnitude tastier than you’d expect from a mini-golf place; it’s called Yummies for a reason.
Highlight: The quaint, family-friendly vibe. “People come to relax, play games, and enjoy the ice cream,” says Spero. Indeed, it’s a great place to spend a few leisurely hours, whether hitting the mini-links, belting out tunes on the karaoke machine, or letting your toddler play with hula hoops in the fenced-in yard while you slurp a chocolate milkshake.
What’s New: An expanded menu with turkey, chicken, and eggplant burgers supplementing the hot dogs, grilled cheese, and what some aficionados call the best burger in the Hudson Valley.
