I have been going to this course for many many years. I took my two sons when they were kids (now in mid 30's). The last few years I've gone with my 90 year old friend during the summer. We eat there, have ice cream, visit and golf. It was and is and always has been fabulous. Good course, nice, friendly, delicious. They have reasonable rules about number of people in a group and that is what doesn't delay the game for lots of people behind them. A smart rule...keeps everybody enjoying their time on the course. That is very nice for everyone. I'm in my late 70's and still enjoying my time there,,,and I'm about 29 miles from them. Never had a difficult time. Can't wait for late spring to arrive!!!!!!

WORST & RUDEST EXPERIENCE I'VE EVER HAD!!!!! STAY AWAY!!!.
This place has the strictest mini golf rules I've ever seen. A maximum of 3 persons per group absolutely no more. I had some of my family from NC come up here to visit over the 4th of July weekend and we decided to make this our last event for one night and boy was that a mistake. We just happened to be the second to the last group admitted and by the first hole we were already being scolded by an employee about not playing as a group of 6 that we needed to split into 2 groups of 3. So we decided to let the last 2 people play first so we could take our time playing and enjoying our family we hadn't seen in some time. I mean who wants to rush the game, the whole fun is watching your friends or family play too. Since we let the last people ahead of us the first employee who scolded us to begin with said we could take our time and play however we wanted to...I didn't think we were bothering anyone especially since we were now the last people playing...but nooo, they were sticklers to the end. The employee was fine with it but about half way throught the course what ended up being the OWNER just popped up out of the wooded area and smugly asked if we were playing two groups, well I lied and said ""yes"". The owner immediately said ""no your not"". So I replied, ""why does it matter, we are the last people playing and were not holding anyone up or bothering anyoneand besides...the guy up front said it was ok"". This is where he turned up his attitude and said ""well that guy works for me and I'm the owner and I can see your not playing in two groups like the RULES specifically state"". This was not coming from some kid...this was a grown man who supposedly was the owner of the course. He said ""you can either play by the rules or I can refund your money"". If I had not had my 9 & 11 year old nieces with me I would have dropped my clubs and demanded my money back with a few choice words thrown in. I could not believe how rudely we were treated and it was by the OWNER. I WILL NEVER IN MY LIFE GO BACK THERE AGAIN AND WOULD NOT RECOMMEND IT TO MY WORST ENEMY! And their Ice Cream was nothing but your standard junk you can buy at the store...NOTHING SPECIAL AND OVERPRICED! STAY AWAY AND DONT WASTE YOUR MONEY!!! AT $8 PER PERSON IT WAS A RIP-OFF!!!
