Mini Golf Courses in Branson
BRANSON’S WILD WORLD
Imagine that you’re flying above the jungle when your plane unexpectedly crashes! Branson’s Wild World throws you into this exciting setting with nine mini golf holes surrounded by live animal exhibits, which feature snakes, crocodiles, frogs, and more. Plus, this truly unique blacklight course can be taken to another level with 3-D glasses.
Brookside Mini Golf is a more traditional course, with babbling brooks, waterfalls, fountains, and tidy greens. Its central location on Shepherd of the Hills Expressway makes it a great place to stop for a quick, fun break. Be sure to visit Brookeside’s website for coupons.
Greatest Adventures, located in the heart of Branson, features 36 adventurous holes (though you can also choose a quicker, 18-hole course). The “greatest adventures” include everything from Medieval castles and knights to waterfalls, gorillas, and Egyptian artifacts! In 2011, Greatest Adventures even hosted the US Miniature Golf Open! Be sure to visit their website for a 1 dollar off coupon.
Aye aye, matey! If you’ve always been fascinated with the world of pirates, be sure to check out Pirate’s Cove. This award-winning miniature golf attraction features two 18-hole courses that capture the spirit of a pirate’s world using cascading waterfalls, buccaneer-themed architecture, a huge pirate ship, and many fun factoids about the pirates of yore.
PROFESSOR HACKER’S DINOSAUR CANYON & LOST TREASURE GOLF
Branson is home to two of Professor Hacker’s mini golf courses: Dinosaur Canyon and Lost Treasure Golf. At Dinosaur Canyon you can putt-putt surrounded by (you guessed it!) dinosaurs, as well as waterfalls, streams, and a volcano with real fire! At Lost Treasure, golfers take a fun mining train from the clubhouse to the course, which includes more water features, an airplane, and ancient runes. Both of these attractions have two 18-hole courses.
