Mini golf presents intricate challenges not found in regular golf, such as navigating a cart without hitting any obstacles and accepting the mini horse as a distant cousin. Get accustomed to smaller nuances with today's Groupon: for $9, you get four games of miniature golf at Putt-Putt of Fernandina Beach (up to an $18.76 value).
Putt-Putt Golf and Games' hallowed greens have been Fernandina Beach's havens for putts and struts for more than 50 years, playing host to the 2010 Sonny's Florida State Putt-Putt Championship and the upcoming Southern Putting Tour Championship in October. Just steps from the Atlantic Ocean, savvy putters can contest the course's challenging holes with their iron legs, coaxing balls into holes with golf claps and trails of breadcrumbs. In between games, guests can guzzle snow cones, sip soda-fountain suds, or practice faux swordfights with ice-cream cones containing your choice of more than 21 different flavors.
Putt-Putt of Fernandina Beach
Since 1959, Putt-Putt of Fernandina Beach has hosted friendly rounds of mini golf for families, leagues, and tournaments. Co-owner Aaron Bean was one such player—he began working at the putt-putt location as a teenager and still currently holds the course’s nine-hole record of 10 strokes and most convincing celebratory swan dive into the ocean, which is located just steps away. The course has also tested the putting prowess of players in the 2010 Sonny’s Florida State Putt-Putt Championship and 2011 Southern Putting Tour Championship.
