THE COVER —“May The Course Be With You!”— THE PARENTING BIZ, PAGE 18

Happy fall y’all! If you are in need of a little family entertainment on the weekend or an extracurricular activity to keep your child busy after school . . . look no further! Our cover story features bushels of fall fun (while still keeping everyone safe) such as a round of goofy golf. Pictured are Randy and Laurie Ure, owners of Ure’s Country Kitchen, Mini Golf and Ice Cream Parlour & Café, 6000 County Road 20 West, Harrow (Malden Centre). The new course features trick shots, a waterfall, two streams, four ponds, five fountains and challenging fairways. It’s the couple’s ace in the hole and it will be yours too as you score big points with the kids for an exciting family outing! Photo by Rod Denis (
