Check out some of our favorite mini-golf courses around Myrtle Beach:
715 Hwy. 17 N., North Myrtle Beach, SC 29582
Offering not one, but two challenging 18 hole miniature golf courses, Mayday Golf is family-run, built in 1997. The course was voted “Best Survival Course” as the aviation theme throughout is no accident. Mayday Mountain features a lush, misty escape that leads you up over the hilly terrain and under the wings of a Lockheed PV-2 Harpoon that has crashed. Meanwhile, Rescue Falls takes you past the surging waterfall to feature the Huey helicopter that has come to aid the stranded visitors.
Lost Treasure Golf
1705 Hwy 17 S., North Myrtle Beach, SC 29582
Join Professor Duffer A. Hacker, a noted explorer, archaeologist, anthropologist, paleontologist, and part-time taxidermist, on his adventure to find ancient gold and diamond mines rumored to be hidden on the islands off the coast of South America. The adventure features two 18 hole miniature golf courses and a mining train to take all explorers to their first holes down the mountain.
Dinosaur Adventure Golf
701 Hwy 17 S., North Myrtle Beach, SC 29582
Two 18 hole miniature golf courses are set in a lost land inhabited by dinosaurs. Surrounded by creatures thought to be extinct, players must putt their way through the jungle and around waterfalls while waiting to be saved by Professor Duffer A. Hacker’s ship. An 85 foot steamship sits in the water surrounding the courses.
Lost Mine Golf
2601 N Ocean Blvd., Myrtle Beach, SC 29577
Lost Mine Miniature Golf course is full of twists, turns and secrets just like the mine itself. Lost Mine puts you in the heart of the gold rush as you putt your way through 18 increasingly challenging holes. Putt over bridges, through corkscrews and around boulders, and keep your eye out for a secret hole-in-one along the way.
Aloha Mini Golf
918 Lake Arrowhead Road, Myrtle Beach, SC 29572
With 36 outdoor holes as well as an indoor course, Aloha offers family fun no matter the weather. Aloha’s Island course is regarded as the easier of the two outdoor courses, but both courses put putting prowess before kitschy course props—making it a suitable challenge for the world’s best mini-golf players. That being said, an erupting volcano, exotic birds, and water features add the right amount of flair.
Hawaiian Rumble Mini Golf
3210 Highway 17 S, North Myrtle Beach, SC 29582
Rated #1 in the world by the United States ProMiniGolf Association, Hawaiian Rumble offers golfers the chance to beat the course record and take home the first-place trophy. The course meanders through one-of-a-kind landscaping, highlighted by talking birds and a 40-foot flame-emitting volcano prop from the movie “Chasers.”
