Why not combine a golf driving range with a go-cart track -
golfers could get their rocks off by roasting passing go-carts
with a barrage o' balls. Think about it: you're pissed at your
kids, why not take 'em to the go-cart track for some fun* - and
you can spend your hour taking aim and occasionally
them all under the disguise of "fun". It would appease the
masses - the typical passive/aggressive middle-aged american
would have a field day here.
I came up with this idea one day while trying to crank drives
at the ball-picker-upper at the local driving range.
*some additional safety equipment required.

||In Thailand they have guys going around on motorcycles, towing a trailer, to pick the balls up.
Unfortunately the motorcycles are covered in wire mesh. No fun.
||Already happens at driving ranges.People try to hit the kid in the tracter picking up the balls.
||I figure balls on the go-cart track could really mess up traction.
||*Much more additional safety equipment required.
||Other wise I have to say that I would go driving more often if there were one of these in my town.
