Miniature Golf has a long-standing tradition as an important part of a Myrtle Beach vacation. Mini-golf, or “putt putt” as it is sometimes referred, has been a popular and affordable form of family entertainment along the Grand Strand for 50-plus years. The challenging and whimsical courses present golf in an approachable manner for children and first-timers, while offering a tougher test of putting skills, even for the experienced golfer. Here, a kid can beat his old man at his own game and take home bragging rights. A simple game, players receive one ball and one putter at the start, and play their way through a course full of quirky obstacles. Miniature golf courses line the Grand Strand with a wide variety of themes; pirate adventures, jungle safaris, castaway islands, and even prehistoric golf with dinosaurs on every hole. Not surprisingly, the Grand Strand is also host of the Masters of Mini Golf tournament each October.
