“Good course, well maintained”
Reviewed 27 July 2013

The price of about $30 was a bit more than I would have liked for two adults, two children. But it's a well maintained course that's challenging and fun. The kids really enjoyed it.

“Fun for families”
Reviewed 10 July 2013

There are two courses, which are well maintained. You can feed the fish. Expect to spend about $30 on four people. Coupons can be found in ads.

“My favorite miniature golf course!”
Reviewed 6 July 2013

I love water and my husband and daughter love pirates so this is the perfect place to play miniature golf. I can not describe in mere words just how well they take care of their property -- it amazes me every time! From the bathrooms, the landscaping (flowers & trees), to the koi pond where you can feed their fish, to each hole -- it's clean & well kept. The scenery is perfect with lots of water (in a pretty shade of blue) everywhere; including a couple of waterfalls. My only 'complaint' (and this is more a preference) is that I wish it had more shade. With that said, I'll put up with the sun for an hour just to play there -- it's a fun challenge every time. There is plenty of free parking available and the way the courses (they have 2 to chose from) are set-up there is more than enough room to accommodate large groups of people.

“So much fun and scenic.”
Reviewed 30 June 2013

There were 12 of us ages 3yrs-87yrs. We all had so much fun. The captins course has more photo opps and us more scenic. We talked about it the whole week we were there as a matter of fact 7 of us went back to play Blackbeard's course, 3 days later. So much fun...we will go back when go back to Osage Beach next year.

“Great mini golf”
Reviewed 20 June 2013

We have to go every year that we go back to the lake. Our lil one even scored his first hole in one last time we were there. He was so excited and they gave him a prize. They have 2 different courses with water features and caves.
