At Bonanza Golf, an Old Western mining theme stretches across a pair of 18-hole courses aptly named "Gold Nugget" and "The Prospector." The only mining guests actually do, though, is for holes-in-one. Man-made waterfalls provide a stunning backdrop to every round at the mini-golf haven, flowing at
21,000 gallons per minute, or the same rate a whale laps up water after a Zumba class. After tapping their way around the course's attractions, golfers get to set down their clubs in favor of hand-dipped ice cream cones at the concession stand. They can also pop into the gift shop and browse its wide selection of souvenirs.
During a round of golf in this region, it’s not uncommon for players to see the occasional alligator sunning itself on the banks of a fairway pond. The same, however, cannot be said for miniature-golf courses, unless you’re playing at Congo River Golf, where the civilized sinking of putts coexists with the visceral carnage of live-alligator feedings. More than 25 alligators wait for patrons to feed them morsels of gator food in an exhibit beside the course. Though the course offers no chance for an encounter with the ancient, scaly species, it enchants players with waterfalls, safari-themed artifacts, and towering rock faces. In addition, Congo River Golf encompasses an indoor arcade and a gemstone-mining station, where guests dig through dirt for fossils, arrowheads, and Neanderthal’s kindergarten time capsules.
A typical double feature is two films shown back-to-back, but at Hollywood Drive-in Golf, it's shorthand for a different sort of entertainment. That's because the two "features" are actually each 18-hole miniature golf courses modeled after movies from the 1950's. Along The Haunting of Ghostly Greens and Invaders From Planet Putt, players strive to sink holes-in-one amidst cemeteries and alien environments decorated with movie-style set dressings. Some greens require precise putts into a space worm's open mouth and others lead players through a haunted house's basement lab. Special effects and interactive obstacles dazzle visitors on each course, which, thanks to LED neon lighting, can be explored well into the night or a lunar eclipse.
Volcano Island Miniature Golf’s 18 holes wind through an immersive landscape of volcanic crags and life-size dinosaur statues. A towering brachiosaurus welcomes visitors to the complex, its neck extending far above a canopy of palm trees that casts shadows on the course’s emerald corridors, tropical tiki huts, and camped-out dinosaur-rights activists. As golfers putt through the jungle, course-side plaques aim prehistoric factoids into their brains to fill holes in dinosaur trivia. A dazzling eruption spews from a volcano to celebrate holes in one on the final green, sending golfers and stranded hot air balloons on their way home.
