Crowne%20Plaza%20Times%20Square%20Golf%20Room.jpg

We're not talking a long a funky 581-yard par-5 with a dog-leg to the left but if you happen to be in the Apple and are jonesing to get a club in your hand this may get you though the night.
The Crowne Plaza in Times Square, which has just undergone an $85 million renovation, says 18 rooms will be tricked out with mini-putting greens by the middle of this month. Rates will start at $349, and includes putters, balls and, of course, green fees.
Overall, the joint is pretty luxe with one butler floor (pretty much as it sounds) and five concierge floors. There is 24-hour brasserie service, a 29,000-square-foot health club, and a 50-foot indoor lap pool.
I mention all this only so you can be confident there will be other things to do in between rounds.
