This week, several viewers asked “what is your favorite mini golf course in Orlando?” We decided to grab the kids and head out to our favorite miniature golf course to have some fun!
Kelly loves mini golf, so he was thrilled to help out and share his mini golf expertise. We went to all of the mini golf courses in Orlando, just as a refresher.
As Florida locals, here is our ranking of the best mini golf courses in Orlando.
Best Mini Golf in Orlando
#5 Congo River Golf
Our #5 spot is Congo River Golf. There are several Congo mini golf courses in Central Florida. You will find a couple in Orlando, Kissimmee, and Altamonte Springs.
We love the adventure and theming for this golf experience. All of these courses are jungle themed. You will putt through waterfalls, caves, and tropical rain forests.
Our kids love the putt putt, but we also love the baby alligators. They have live gators at Congo River Golf. Based on the location, you can hold a baby gator or just feed them. If this is your first visit to Orlando, feeding the alligators is a must do.
#4 Fantasia Gardens
In the middle of Disney theme park territory at Walt Disney World, you will find are miniature golf courses. Near Disney’s Hollywood Studios and Epcot is Fantasia Gardens and Fairways Miniature Golf. Both of these courses are next to each other. If you are a golfer, you may want to take on the Fairways 18-hole course.
If you are looking for fun, we love Fantasia Gardens. This mini golf course is themed after the popular Fantasia movie. You will find a lot of fun selfie spots, too!
There is not a lot of shade for this course. Plan on this course in the winter months or during the evening hours, when it is cooler!
#3 Pirate’s Cove Adventure Golf
Another popular Central Florida golf course is Pirate’s Cove Adventure Golf. Or should I say . . . X marks the spot! There are two Pirate’s Cove courses in Orlando and Lake Buena Vista (near Disney World). We love the Pirate’s Cove mini golf on International Drive. You have a great view of the ICON wheel on I-Drive.
You can choose from two different courses at Pirate’s Cove including Blackbeard’s Challenge or Captain’s Course. These courses will putt you through caves, around pirate ships, and even under waterfalls.
#2 Hollywood Drive-In Golf
At Universal CityWalk in Universal Orlando Resort, you will find our #2 favorite mini golf. You have two choices of mini golf and both are amazing.
You will have a blast playing on either “The Haunting of Ghostly Greens” and “Invaders From Planet Putt.”
Imagine vintage horror flicks and “little green men” sci-fi flicks, as you enjoy a challenging round of mini golf.
You will be laughing all of the way through it. There are also a ton of selfie spots on both courses. Your tweens and teens will love it!
#1 Winter Summerland
You cannot beat snow in Florida! Our favorite golf course in Orlando is located at Disney World. This golf course is called Winter Summerland. This golf course is next to Disney’s Blizzard Beach Water Park. You can literally play at Blizzard Beach during the day and then play a round of mini golf at night.
There are two sides of mini golf course fun, all themed after Christmas. One side is Christmas in summer and one is Christmas in winter. We love both sides!
This is fun to play during the summer for Christmas in July or in December for the holidays. You will even see Santa, so you better be nice! If you book a Walt Disney World Resort package, you actually get a round of miniature golf at Winter Summerland Miniature Golf for FREE!
