These Myrtle Beach Courses Lead the Way for Mini-Golf

How about a fun deviation from an often-serious game of golf?

You’ve vanquished water hazards and traversed sand traps on golf courses. But have you sunk a putt with a pirate staring you down? Or lined up your approach while dinosaurs roared?

If so, you’ve met the Grand Strand’s other crown jewel: Mini-golf.

Crowning the 5 best mini-golf courses in Myrtle Beach

Dollar for dollar, you can’t beat a round of golf that you can play in flip-flops. And for high stakes, such as post-round ice cream.

Mt. Atlanticus Minotaur Goff | 707 North Kings Highway

It’s a spectacle, with two 18-hole courses in a lush tiki environment.


It’s a spacious complex. The Minotaur course is the most challenging. Play the Conch course for an easier outing.


Legend has it this course is 50,000 years old, a breakaway from the sunken continent of Atlantis. It’s inched toward the U.S. for eons.


Need wheels when you play? This is your place. One of the courses is accessible to baby strollers, scooters, wagons, and wheelchairs.

Mt Atlanticus Mini Golf

Jurassic Mini Golf

Dinosaurs are hazards on the Ice Age and Predator courses.


Fun experience! One played with their 8-year-old daughter and had “fun galore.” The dinosaurs are cool. Some move and squirt water!


The prehistoric lizards, of course. A Horned-faced ceratopsian and a Spitting dilophosaurus. A Tyrannosaurus rex and Raptor.


Head up the road a bit for post-round pancakes. Woodhaven Pancake House serves up hefty portions of amazing food.

Captain Hook’s Adventure Golf | 2205 North Kings Highway

A two-course facility that features Peter Pan and Tinkerbell.


It’s a fun place with adequate parking. You’ll love it! Great for families. Lost Boys and Hook’s Challenge courses are equally challenging.


It’s well-lit for night play.


Ask about the special deal that lets you play both courses.

Shipwreck Island Adventure Golf

Another two-course facility with fish. marine props, a ship, and water features.


It’s a nice site for 18 holes of simple, fun mini-golf. Elevation changes for the golfer in us; cool decor for the kid in us.


That ship run aground in the middle of it all? She’s the Myrtle Maiden, and her crew became castaways in Myrtle Beach.


Make it a golf-day double. Bring your discs to the nearby Splinter City Disc Golf Course. It has two sets of tees and is perfect for the vacationing chucker.

Treasure Island Mini Golf | 4801 North Kings Highway

It’s got a pirate feel to it, with hills, palm trees, and a ship.


It’s a fun, clean facility, and a great place for kids and adults. There’s an awesome gift shop with fair prices and friendly staff throughout.


The place hasn’t stuck up a few pirate statues and called it a day. The motif is in the book Treasure Island, and North Carolina pirate history inspired it.


Make it an all-American evening. Stop by Carolina Roadhouse for Crab Dip and a Monster Burger. Reservations recommended.
