If you make the 25-minute drive to Paul B Johnson State Park, you’ll have access to two 18-hole courses. You can pick up course maps as well as scorecards at the visitor center. Take note that there is a $2 per person entry fee to the park, but you’ll have plenty of things to keep you busy all day.
