Mini Golf Adventures: Hawaiian Rumble Golf

Date of Visit: March 18, 2024

Location: Hawaiian Rumble Golf, North Myrtle Beach, SC

There are so many mini golf places in the Myrtle Beach area that we still haven't visited that it is always hard to decide which to try next. Thus, Nora helped me make a jar of paper slips of all the places I have not been to and drew one out of it to decide which one to try this day.

We enjoyed the Hawaiian theme, especially how each hole had a Hawaiian name with the English translation. The volcano erupting every once in awhile was also fun. The orca whale spraying and the wind making it hard not to get wet was not so much appreciated. Nora also enjoyed feeding the turtles. The rescue birds by the entrance were also interesting.

Final Scores

  • Nora - 56
  • Kjersti - 52

Mini Golf Adventures: Gator Golf

Date of Visit: December 15, 2023

Location: Gator Golf, Orlando, FL

Gator Golf had caught Dad's attention as looking interesting when we had driven down International Drive earlier in the trip. It was interesting in that it did have gators to see along the course. There were some good variety to the hole layouts as well. When you go up the stairs about halfway though the course, it does feel odd that you are suddenly in a farm theme, though.

Mini Golf Adventures: Disney's Winter Summerland Miniature Golf - Summer Course

Date of Visit: December 13, 2023

Location: Disney's Winter Summerland Miniature Golf,  Lake Buena Vista, FL

Course: Summer Course

After playing the Winter Course, we did the Summer Course. This one has all the holes with a sand theme instead of snow. There are a few similar holes such as there being a sand castle instead of snow castle on this course and the end with a computer, although the Summer one seemed broken and did not give a message like the Winter one.

There were also some different features on this course to go with it's summer theming such as a hole with surfboards standing in the "sand." One of the funniest is with Santa asleep in the sand and you aim to hit your ball to go over him. Hole 17 with trains going around under the tree is also interesting, although the balls seemed to get really stuck up there if you did not manage to get it through between the trains.

Mini Golf Adventures: Disney's Winter Summerland Miniature Golf - Winter Course

Date of Visit: December 13, 2023

Location: Disney's Winter Summerland Miniature Golf,  Lake Buena Vista, FL

Course: Winter Course

We have played the courses at Disney's Winter Summerland at least once before, but that was before we started tracking the mini golf courses we have played. Since it was the holiday season, it seemed a good time to do this trip. We started with the Winter Course, which has a variety of snow themed holes.

Two of the most interesting for the theme are the ski moguls and ski slalom holes. There are also some fun holes with things that happen such as the cooler opening when your ball goes under it and trying to get under Santa's feet that move slightly up and down in a chimney. The end of the computer is also fun with it giving you a message from Santa.
