We beat the season by a few weeks, so the course wasn't operating at 100%. The "lagoons" hadn't been filled with water yet, and many of the flowers were yet to come. But the course itself was quite nice. It's really tough to get a hole in one, and putting can be tricky. It's a nice place for all ages,... More

This is our go-to golf course during our Rehoboth trips. It has a lot of entertaining holes at a good price. The store has a lot of neat beach themed gifts. Course is very kid friendly and laid back. Can be crowded somewhat at popular times, but it's never been a major problem.

Our grandson asked to play here yesterday on his day off school. I drive by this course almost daily and never thought it could be much because it's in a tight spot next to the road. Boy was I wrong. This is the nicest mini golf course I have ever played. Incredibly clean and beautifully landscaped. What a masterpiece. It... More

We love to play miniature golf when we come to Rehoboth Beach! It's fun being outside with a little competition. It's cool and refreshing being out of the sun.

Delayed our drive out of Rehoboth on Rt 1 by stopping for a half-hour at this shell shop and mini-golf stand. With its Hawaii-styled music over the loadspeakers, and totally shameless "more on top of more" kitschy décor - tiki torches, floating plastic sharks, silly statues - this place is an ideal stop for beachy fun.
