2017 Kid’s Zone presented by Valpak is going to be bigger and better than ever!

We are bringing back the same fun activities that we had last year but also we are adding many new activities and fun events throughout the week. Some of the new things that we are doing are bringing in Laurels Princess Parties, new mascots, expanding the size of the Kid’s Zone! This is going to be the biggest and best Kid’s Zone yet!

Let’s review what is going to be happening

Scavenger Hunt – Not to distract you from the players playing the game, but we will have a course wide scavenger hunt that you can participate in. There will be a check sheet and we will see if you are able to find all the activities throughout the course. If you are able to achieve this, just come back to the Kid’s Zone and claim your prize! We will have different scavenger hunts for different age ranges so all are welcome to participate.

Mascot Day – This is a classic tradition but with some new additions! On this day, we bring in all sorts of mascots from around North West Ohio and Michigan to take pictures, sign autographs, and partake in the mascot parade! The Mascot Parade will allow you to see the mascots without you having to miss any of the tournaments. They will also be at the Kid’s Zone so stop by when you have a chance. Like we said earlier, we will have our classic mascots; Rocky, Spike, Muddy & Muddonna, Freddie & Freda, and others. Now we are happy to announce some of the new mascots that are able to participate in this wonderful event; Sparty (Michigan State University), Chomps (Cleveland Browns, and Roary (Detroit Lions)! These new, but certainly experienced, mascots will be joining the festivities. So come out and see the faces of professional teams, colleges, and other organizations!

Imagination Station – This fun filled science and creativity group know how to combine your imagination with pure fun! Imagination station will be bringing their creative scientists out to the golf course and will be leading experiments for all to engage in. Some of their experiments include splatter paint, Nitro pops, and electro dough. This is a fun way to put your thinking caps on and experiment with new and entertaining experiences. So come over to the Kid’s Zone to see what the scientists have in store for us this year!

Laurel’s Princess Parties – This fantastic addition to our Kids Zone is a party in itself. This group brings out their best characters on their contact list. Come out and meet your favorite characters like Bell, Snow Queen, and Moana. But do not let their name fool you; we are also inviting Spiderman, American Hero, and Maui. These outstanding guests will be making their appearances at the Kid’s Zone to sign autographs, take pictures, and leave lasting memories.  Come meet some of your favorite characters while we have them here at the Kid’s Zone!

The Toledo Zoo – Here is another one of Toledo’s finest attractions. The Toledo Zoo is a no-brainer when it comes to invites to the Kid’s Zone. The zoo, with some of their animal friends, will be coming over from their headquarters and bringing everything that we know and love to the Kid’s Zone. They will be providing information and deepening your knowledge on some of their closest animal friends. They are also allowing you to touch and interact with the animals while learning about what makes them so unique. Feel free to get out of your comfort zone and join us at the Kid’s Zone.

First Tee – There is no better way to learn more about the best game on the planet than through First Tee. First Tee is an organization that offers fun interactive golf experiences where you can enhance your knowledge while also learning life skills. There will be fun games and activities for all ages to play and golf experts that will help provide any answers to questions. First Tee is a staple to the golf community so do not miss the opportunity to interact with them.

Valpak has been an amazing partner for the Kid’s Zone! They have been able to sit with us and helped us reach out to all of the wonderful people coming into the Kid’s Zone. We wanted acknowledge their hard work and show appreciation to them. If you would like to learn more about them, visit their website at
