Wait, Mini-Golf as a Professional Sport? Yes!
It’s a fun family pastime in the United States, where visitors hit the various links on vacation, traversing pirates, and other fun themes. In Europe, mini-golf players have been competing for real since the 1930s. There is even a movement to make it an Olympic sport!
Myrtle Beach gets props as the World’s Golf Capital because of its top-notch courses. From North Myrtle Beach to the South Strand, the facilities here are unique and picturesque. The Grand Strand’s weather makes it an ideal landing place for players year-round.
As golf has become part of Myrtle Beach’s identity, so too has its scaled-down sibling. There are 50 mini-golf courses here. They’ve been the setting for dates, socialization, and family competition for 100 years.
