Mini golf arose out of demand for a time-efficient alternative to a full round of golf and a global passion for man-made waterfalls. Putt through artificial cascades with today’s Groupon: for $9, you get a mini golf outing for two at Fiesta Falls Miniature Golf in St. Augustine Beach (up to an $18 value).
Fiesta Falls Miniature Golf Course takes golfers careening through an 18-hole labyrinth of smooth emerald corridors that converge at a faux mountaintop gazebo with an ocean view. Players tap like a bugler at dawn as they steer their dimpled charges along eight gushing waterfalls, a circuit of shadowy caves, and a 65-foot Spanish galleon that fell prey to a water hazard generations ago. Towering palm trees and rising crags offer shade from the hot daytime sun, and Fiesta Falls opens its doors on pleasant nights for golfers to enjoy its lighted course and attain the elusive moon tan.
Fiesta Falls offers different rates for adults, youths, and seniors.
Fiesta Falls Miniature Golf
A mountaintop gazebo rises above a labyrinth of emerald corridors, offering sweeping, ocean views to mini golfers who conquer Fiesta Falls Miniature Golf's course. The 18-hole circuit takes players past eight waterfalls, through shadowy caves, and around a 65-foot Spanish galleon that has been enjoying a golf-centric retirement since the Age of Imperialism. During the daytime, trees and rocky outcroppings block out the sun’s rays, which are supplanted by towering light fixtures after sunset to allow for nighttime play. Fiesta Falls’s concessions dishes out soft-serve ice cream, milk shakes, and other desserts to help guests ice their elbow after a particularly strenuous round.
