With its 100 kilometers of pristine beaches and with an average of 215 days of sunshine a year, Myrtle Beach is known as The Beach! And as you might know, it is also very popular for golfers, and it’s been called the Golf Capital of the World!

But did you know that it is also called the Mini Golf Capital of the World?

There are over 30 mini golf courses in the Myrtle Beach area. Mini Golf has been around for nearly 100 years in Myrtle Beach, and the game is as popular as ever.

What's great about this activity is that you don't have to be an avid golfer, talented, with a low golf handicap to enjoy it, no, the whole family can play, regardless of their skills level and age. I am a former golf pro, and my wife and children beat me regularly at mini golf and they take great pleasure in reminding me each time we play.

Mini golf is known as one of the most popular entertainment attractions and it is a proven social experience that brings people of all ages together. In addition, mini golf allows you to work on the coordination of your senses with body movements. This is mainly useful for all people of different age categories. For children, this improves their balance as well as certain coordination of the senses. But first and foremost, we play mini golf for the fun, for the adventure, and a little bit for the competition!

And how about those course design, they are not less than spectacular. It is an adventure from the first hole to the last. You don't know what awaits you along the way. Mini golf in Myrtle Beach can be classified by themes.

Do you want to discover the crazy saga of the Pirates? Visit the jungle or the beautiful lagoons? Do you like dinosaurs and the prehistoric time? Explore the exceptional landscapes of Hawaii? Or simply have a truly memorable wild adventure?

You will be pampered with all the mini golf choices that the Grand Strand has to offer. Choose your favorite theme and enjoy the course. The environment you will find will transport you to another world, all at a very affordable price.

I am originally from Montreal, Quebec, Canada. I am a retired firefighter from the City of Montreal, and I have been in the golf business for 25 years. I was also a golf professional for almost ten years and golf continues to be my passion. I have been visiting Myrtle Beach for 30 years and I can say that I consider the city as my home away from home. This is my favorite destination when the golf season is over north of the border. I love everything about Myrtle Beach: the beautiful weather all year round, the superb golf courses, a multitude of restaurant choices, shopping for all tastes, 100 kilometers of beaches and all kinds of activities that will make your stay an unforgettable experience, whether it is with your golf partners, your family, or simply to settle down there for a few months to escape the cold of winter.
