Mini Golf Destination - Myrtle Beach
Hooked on mini golf? Do you find that one, two, three, or ten courses of golf leave you wanting more? Then you need to head to the mini golf capital of the US, if not the world, Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. Yes, that is right. Myrtle Beach does not only serve as a "big" golf players' paradise, there are plenty of distractions for mini golf players as well. What better way to distract the "big" golf orphans than dozens and dozens and dozens of mini golf courses, at last count approximately fifty.
I have not visited yet, but for a small taste of some of the more notable links, a recent report in the San Francisco Chronicle provides an overview. For a more detailed description and, dare I say, analysis of the Myrtle golf scene take a look at "A Field Guide to Mini-Golf." I particularly appreciate the author's categorization of the types of courses. While many of the courses seem quite interesting, it does sound as though some of them might be "over produced." But I look forward to trying them out.
