“Don't bother”
Reviewed 22 May 2014 via mobile

Nothing really appealing at all about this course. We were the only folks on the course and it was obvious why after starting. Didn't even do half of it, before going onto something else.

“Worst mini golf EVER!”
Reviewed 17 August 2013

Located behind the Timbuck ll shopping center, next to the bumper cars and across from the expensive go carts, this is without question, the saddest, most poorly maintained mini golf facility I have ever seen. The "greens" were faded and worn (picture holes and stringy astro turf) and the "hazards" consisted of paver stones and garden rocks. It was obvious that this course has not been updated or maintained in many, many years. The "themed" decorations were worn and broken, paint was sloppy and faded and the astro turf was really, really worn. Frankly, the most challenging hazards were the tree roots which had infiltrated under the turf making the greens really uneven and creating tripping hazards. The young lady at the entrance hut barely looked up from her iPhone to ask "Do you want to golf?" Why else were 3 adults and 3 kids standing there with money in hand? $8 for adults and $6 for kids. Yikes. Oh and she couldn't even bother to look up from her iPhone when we returned the balls and clubs either. Had I known that there was a newer mini golf further up the road in Corolla, we would have gone there. When you stay in Duck, your mini golf options are either north to Corolla or south to Kill Devil Hills or beyond. If you want to play mini golf, go anywhere else but here.

“worst course ever!!!”
Reviewed 23 July 2013

Not groomed, run down green, no features, no boundaries, no maintenance. Quite the rip off. The cups that create the holes were higher than the worn out astro turf. Your money is better spent anywhere else than here. We have played mini golf from Cape Cod to Southern Florida. We just like to play.It doesn't have to be exceptional for us to have fun, but this was the worst ever!
