    Hello Alyce,

    Whenever I was traveling south from the Western states ,or just home to Florida from Missouri, my goal was to get through Georgia as fast as I could. Seems like I missed some good scenery and good times. Never knew you could mix mini golf with other activities. Of course, food, especially ice cream, goes really well with miniature golf. My husband and I were rockhounds when we lived in the southwest- and I would go for a round of golf and a bit of rock hunting.

    Seems like miniature golf is the thing in the Appalachian foothills. No full sized  golf course anywhere in the area? Of course, I have played both regular golf and mini golf and I am no good at either. But I love golf either way. The grounds are beautiful. It was always a great way to enjoy the outdoors. Fortunately, when I was playing golf, my whole group was not so good. We just enjoyed the outdoors, If I ever travel south again, I’ll have to stop in Georgia. Great pictures. And kids under three, free? wonderful!

    Hey again!

    Alright.. now THIS is more my style 🙂 I am an avid golfer, and no mini golf is not less superior to regular golf! I love it all!

    This is a sport I have grown up with my whole life and I have a lot of passion for and it really started with mini golf. My grand father and dad both enjoyed golf, and I would join them once in a while, but it was mini golf that really got me into it. When I was young.. it was the ice cream I got after the game 😛 but soon I cared less and less about the ice cream and more about the game and getting the ball in the little holes. My mom would take me every weekend, and soon as I got older I was visiting on my own through the bus system. My family couldn’t get me away, so they eventually brought me to a real golf course. It was frusterating at first, and all I wanted to do was putt! But I soon got the hang of it, and havent looked back.

    The mini put course was the start of a life long passion and I hope others that visit your site and potentially visit one of these courses finds enjoyment and love from the game.

    Talk soon!

      Hi Brooke, thanks so much for sharing. I also have many fond childhood memories of going to the local mini-golf place for Saturday afternoons of golf, arcade games, and lunch. It’s great to hear how one passion sparked another for you and that golf has remained a lifelong favorite! 🙂

    Wow, that’s a great idea for a family vacation! I like that the Alpine Mini Gold if not only kids-friendly but also pets-friendly. At last, a family wouldn’t have to leave any members behind despite the leg count. 🙂

    Gem mining at the Lilly Pad also sounds very attractive as an additional activity.

    All the places look scenic on your pictures and very inviting. Thank you for putting the information together of all these places for mini-golf.

    The game of golf generally has always been fascinating to me to watch and practise. I think the miniature golf in the Georgia mountains would be a perfect way to cap off an eventful vacation. I have been planning my vacation but I don’t know the kind of activities that can be included towards my ending parts of my vacation and I’m glad I read about this miniature golf in the Georgia. They look rather amazing and would surely be fun to visit to have a one or more rounds of Golf. Thanks

    Oh wow, miniature golfing? This is just perfect. I have already heard of the Georgian mountains and all of it’s beauties from good restaurants to nice breweries etc. Now this is really nice, I love golfing especially because I get to meet new people. I think this is one of the very many reasons why I need to visit the Georgian mountains. This is very cool and I came wait to come around.

      There is often a lot of camaraderie on the course as you’ll get to watch some of the play of the groups in front of you and behind you. It’s always a good time!
