Putt Putt Gold Mermaid Beach

Mini golf is a game that everyone enjoys. Putt Putt Mermaid Beach can provide you with the most pleasing experience. Three themed 18-hole courses, a video games arcade, licensed 19th hole beverages, a barbeque zone, and free onsite parking are all available at this family-friendly attraction.

Let’s start with their mini-golf courses. The first is known as the Fun Run. As the name implies, this course is full of entertaining and whimsical characters and challenging motorised obstacles. You can slay a medieval dragon, steal a pirate’s booty, and visit a not-too-scary haunted house. All 18 holes are covered by durable shade sails so that you may play rain or shine.

The tropical Jungle Trail is the second. The tribe of creatures, particularly the talking parrot, the ‘King of the Jungle,’ and others, will undoubtedly appeal to children. Proceed to the third one, which is Waterways Course. There are gushing waterfalls, cheeky turtles, shipwrecked pirates, and a frolicking dolphin in this sanctuary. The light shows will astound you if you play here at night.

Yes, they are open from 9 AM to 10 PM. You can play mini-golf in the morning, try out the twilight mini-golf, or compete in the arcade.
