With over 3 acres of fun and attractions, we are the area's favorite family fun and entertainment center. Our most popular attraction is the 18-hole mini-golf course. Included with every golf purchase , you are able to enjoy sand volleyball, bocce ball, horseshoes, bags game and kids country. Bring your towels and get ready for a squirt gun battle on the pirate ship. Purchase squirt guns at the clubhouse and have a blast! Inside the clubhouse you can do many things. Tyotees Wild Mining Adventure is fun for the whole family. Purchase your bag of mining rough and go to the sluice box where you will pan for gemstones, fossils, arrowheads and much more. Of course you get to keep what you find. 3 original skeeball machines take 1 quarter per game.

Margaritas Bar is on site and serves "the best margaritas north of the border." They are a full bar and customers are able to take beverages out on the course.

Don't forget the shopping! the Whispering wind is a unique shopping experience. windsocks, flags, metal art is everywhere, "expect the unexpected."

You can have a margarita and play put put at the same time. We had a cooler day on our vacation and played a round of golf. Great value. Only 7.00/person for 18 holes.

I am an Okoboji fanatic and know the area well. However, I was genuinely surprised when a friend of mine suggested we stop and have a kick a@$ margarita at the Ranch. I thought she was just describing the margaritas but Kick A@$ Margaritas seems to be the name of the on-site bar and gift shop. I have driven by... More

An odd place with mini-golf, mining, outdoor decorations and a bar. They did have hard ice cream. Not as nice as the mini golf up the road.

I wasn't sure what to expect when arriving at the Ranch as it was a lot smaller than I expected. However, our family of 5 had a great time eating, playing mini golf and playing on the property. This place legitimately made me feel like I was on an island in an exotic locale and not just by some big... More

I had the best margarita I've literally ever had and the couple that ran the place was exceptional. The Wizard Of Oz theme was so much fun and it brought me back to my childhood. There... More
