ROCK FALLS – A longtime family-friendly fun spot has reopened in Rock Falls.

After last summer's hiatus, Rainbow Falls Adventure Golf is back in action.

The colorful miniature golf course at 1109 W. U.S. Route 30 will open daily at 2 p.m., with the last golfer let in at 9:30 p.m., said Chip Staebell. He's leasing the business from Judy Myers, who owns the Dairy Queen on the same site.

The 18-hole course has a pond and a waterfall.

"It's challenging, yet fun," said Staebell, who also owns Anytime Fitness in Rock Falls. "We put a lot of time into cleaning up the greens, cleaning up the landscaping."

The price to play is $5 for ages 5 to 15, $6 for 16 and older, and $2 more for a replay round. The facility also is available for birthday parties, fundraisers and other group events, and can be opened off hours for special occasions, he said.

Find Rainbow Falls Adventure Golf on Facebook, follow the fun on Twitter (@rainbowfalls30) or call 815-535-6556 for more information.
