Mini Golf is a great activity that allows the whole family to have fun. While on your Myrtle Beach vacation, check out one of these awesome Mini Golf destinations.

 

Cancun Lagoon Miniature Golf
This course offers mini golfers the opportunity to choose between 2 courses: 1 outdoor and 1 indoor. The outside course features Mayan themed decor, while the inside course runs within the huge replica Mayan pyramid that the course is known for. Your kids (and yourself) will love it.

Prices:
Adult (1 round, 1 18 hole course) – $9.50
Child (1 round, 1 18 hole course) – $8.00

The course hours vary by season so check out their website for exact times. Printable coupons can also usually be found on their site, so be sure to visit them online before going to the course.

 

Molten Mountain
Like Cancun Lagoon, Molten Mountain also offers both an indoor and outdoor course (probably because both courses were designed by and owned by the same person!). The courses at Molten Mountain follow a more tropical theme with the outside course meandering along the base of a volcano and the indoor course winding its way through the inside of the volcano.

Child (1 round, 1 18 hole course) – $8.00

Captain Hook’s Adventure Golf
This course is great for the whole family, but with a Peter Pan theme, it’s especially great for younger children who are able to identify characters as they make their way through the course.
