The sun setting over the western plains as seen from the driving range at the Golf Depot.
The Golf Depot features a driving range with a 2 acres of hitting area and covered/heated hitting bays, a 9-Hole Par 3 course, a 9-hole pitch and putt course, a bentgrass 5,000 sq ft 18-Hole putting course and a restaurant.
The best thing about this hidden gem however, is its views of the downtown Columbus skyline and the best sunset views in the city. Great spot for a bit of family-friendly fun. A full 18-hole mini golf that you play under blacklight! Be sure dress your kids in some UV-reactive gear (at least something white). The black and bleu burger dusted with black pepper and topped with Amish bleu cheese on a toasted brioche bun from Barry's at the Golf Depot.
Come for dinner and then take in the best sunset view in Columbus. Maduros or fried sweet plantains with a spicy mojito sauce for dipping from El Arepazo in Gahanna.
#delicious A view of the boardwalk through the marsh along Big Walnut Creek. Tostones con Hogao: fried green plantains, salty and starchy,
with hogao (sauteed dip made of onions,
tomatoes and garlic) Indoor Glow-in-the-dark Mini Golf!
Wear your whitest whites and glow along an 18 hole black-light safari themed course. The holes are clever and challenging with loop-the-loops and obstacles that cause just the right amount of frustration.
Choose your clothing carefully as black lights are merciless! Any stains and lint will be prominently put on display for all your fellow mini-golfers bemusement. The Columbus skyline as seen from 8.5 miles away at the Golf Depot.

The best thing about this hidden gem however, is its views of the downtown Columbus skyline and the best sunset views in the city. The Buckeye Smashburger, seared Angus beef, fried pepper rings, American cheese, haystack onions, lettuce and mayo on an egg bun with Smashfries (tossed with rosemary, olive oil and garlic). Bandeja Paisa: A Colombian protein parade on a platter! Bandeja is Spanish for platter (Not to be confused with the similarly sounding Pendejo, which is something entirely different) Colombian chorizo, chicharron, steak, fried egg, fried plantains, rice, pinto beans, arepitas (cornmeal fritters) and for a healthy kick, a side salad... The main course off their restaurant week menu; prime rib, a baked potato and green beans from Barrel & Boar located in Creekside Gahanna. The smokehouse burger. Cheddar cheese, apple wood smoked bacon, onion rings and barbeque-ranch sauce. Lola and Giuseppe's Trattoria is a tiny Italian joint tucked away inside a nondescript strip mall in Gahanna. This was their special for the evening, a seafood stuffed manicotti in a cream sauce with tons of lobster, crab, shrimp and roasted red peppers. Great place to hang out.
