Mini Golf Adventures: Red Dragon Cove Adventure Golf - The Pirates Plank


Date of Visit: October 11, 2023

Location: Red Dragon Cove Adventure Golf, Myrtle Beach, SC

Course: The Pirates Plank

After finishing the Marauder's Challenge course, we decided to also play their other course, Pirates Plank. I think this course was slightly more interesting, but overall they were both fun. The most unique hole was the one on the Junk Ship, which had you start facing away from the hole and there was a pipe to get it to go back behind you to the hole (or you could miss that and bounce it back towards the hole like happened for Dad).

Final Scores

  • Kjersti - 50
  • Dad - 51

Mini Golf Adventures: Red Dragon Cove Adventure Golf - Marauder's Challenge


Date of Visit: October 11, 2023

Location: Red Dragon Cove Adventure Golf, Myrtle Beach, SC

Course: Marauder's Challenge

On our way to Hawaiian Village Golf the day before, I almost had Dad turn around when I noticed this new mini golf place, but it is one of the closest to us so decided it would be easy to do another day.

We really enjoyed this place. Part of it is just that it is new and the courses are not worn at all. However, it also has done the theming very well as even though it is basically yet another pirate themed course it is different in that it is also Asian. The Asian theming includes multi-lingual signage on the doors, the temple entry, and on the Marauder's Challenge course the theming includes a Buddha and dragon. We also enjoyed the variety on the course with there being hills, water obstacles, and terraced courses.

Final Scores

  • Kjersti - 52
  • Dad - 43

Mini Golf Adventures: Hawaiian Village Golf - Pineapple

Date of Visit:
October 10, 2023

Location: Hawaiian Village Golf, North Myrtle Beach, SC

Course: Pineapple

Finally, got some cool weather and took advantage of Dad having some time while in town for Mik's doctor's appointments to try out one of the further mini golf places in our area. Dad choose the Pineapple course because it is the Pro course. They used to have a Pro Mini Golf Hall of Fame upstairs, which they were unclear on if they plan to eventually reopen that part or not.

What makes the Pineapple course Pro is that there aren't bumpers that allow for the ball to go off course much more than usual. At first, Dad did not think it looked pro and it seemed to have bumpers because the edges often were raised. However, it quickly became clear those that did not keep the balls on course and we ended up with quite a few penalty strokes in our scores from going off course on various holes.

Final Scores

  • Kjersti - 56
  • Dad - 51
