Question for Miss Manners

What is the proper response when a relative who is visiting your home to celebrate a birthday asks if there's a driving range nearby (implying that if there is, let's go there!)

TheDad handled it by ranting about how ShopRite took out the area driving range when it relocated to a bigger, better store with a smaller, worse parking lot.

I kept my mouth shut and stewed about it while squelching the temptation to ask, "Why do you want to know? Are we boring you?"

And the next question is, why can't I let go of it when people insult my family's hospitality in this way?
