  • Great way to spend a sunny afternoon with lots of laughs. Lots of families having fun hitting colorful golf balls around an imaginative course.

  • Decent selection of hole layouts. No electronic or water based diversions, but course has enough skill shots to keep it interesting. If anything, it's the lack of consistency that keeps it interesting, as you go from an easy 1-2 shot hole, to a 3 par extreme incline with a bonus trap at the top of the ramp. Might be a little hard on some holes for small children, but that's only maybe 1-2 holes.
  • A fun place to play miniature golf! Lots of rounds and even though there will be people before and after you, it is still fun to hang out with friends and play miniature golf.
  • Top notch putt putt course, if a little difficult. Great place to burn some time.
  • Awsome put put with some difficult holes
  • Fun activity for adults and kids.
