Puttering Around Orlando
Miniature golf needs no introduction. We've all played it and know how fun it is especially under beautiful Florida skies. Like Orlando's world-class theme parks, we take great pride in offering quality golf entertainment. The following miniature golf venues are all noted as some of the best in the area and all of them serve up an action-packed and memorable day of fun.
Pirate's Cove (Lake Buena Vista or International Drive)
Voted Best in Florida for Miniature Golf by Orlando Magazine, Pirate's Cove, is also known as the “Original Adventure Golf.” Experience the adventures and legends of infamous pirates in award-winning settings. Pirate's Cove prides itself on offering wholesome, quality family entertainment so you and the family can putt through caves, over footbridges, and under cascading waterfalls, all amidst a fun-filled atmosphere of flowing water, extraordinary landscaping, and enchanting pirate lore. Arrgh, matey, it's a right bit of fun for everyone! There are 2 Orlando locations, both under 20 miles away from your luxury vacation villa.
Putting Edge (International Drive)
This cool place provides a unique immersive guest experience in a socially interactive environment great for the entire family. Whether playing glow-in-the-dark (neon paint and black lights abound) mini-golf or in their arcade, you'll be dazzled with a combination of activity, color, sights and sounds. From the moment you enter one of their “black lit” courses, you have left the real world behind and entered a universe full of fun and imagination.
Congo River Golf (International Drive)
Enjoy challenging miniature golf as you explore giant waterfalls, caves and rainforests. Ride a paddleboat down the Congo River and explore African terrain. Take a wild ride through the jungle with the Exploration Game where you follow in the footsteps of famous African Congo explorers, find their artifacts and report back to Safari Headquarters for your Exploration Prize. Or, enjoy the Congo River Mining experience that allows you to discover buried treasure by sifting through gemstones, fossils and more. You're guaranteed to leave with one-of-a-kind finds. And don't miss the pièce de résistance: a gator-feeding experience at an interactive gator exhibit with live gators and exclusive photo opportunities.
Hollywood Drive-In Golf (Universal CityWalk Orlando)
Golf-loving night owls, this one's for you. Billed as "Central Florida's newest and most outrageously themed miniature golf", this gem offers two state-of-the-art 18-hole courses and stays open until 2 a.m.
Enter a classic 1950s-style drive-in theater box office area and select either a "single-feature" (18-holes) or "double-feature" (36-holes) with a choice of two family-friendly courses. Based on vintage horror/sci-fi flicks, "The Haunting of Ghostly Greens" and "Invaders From Planet Putt", you will putt your way through elaborate movie-style scenes and into the basement lab of a towering haunted house. Enjoy cutting-edge interactive elements and special effects, plus LED neon edge-lighting which allows you to play into the late night. Happy putting!
