This is a middle of the road course that was much more expensive than it should have been. You don’t really get that much for the price they are charging. The course is in good shape overall, and the obstacles are in good condition, but there is nothing that sets it apart from any other course. It has a few interesting holes, but most of the stuff is run of the mill and follows a sort of nautical theme. We were a bit miffed the first time we tried to play the course though. We called the course to ensure they would be open because it was early spring and a bit chilly and overcast. They replied that they would be open until 10 p.m. as long as the weather permits. However, when we arrived at the course at 7:30 p.m. it was closed (and looked like it had been for some time, even though it only took us 45 minutes to drive there) although the weather hadn’t changed at all. Just leaves us wondering what “weather permitting” really means. In the end, we’re not saying that you should stay away from this course. It’s one of a handful in the area and it won’t leave you disappointed except for the price.

I would like to disagree with your review.
I visited Castle Creek today, and was very impressed with the entire
park. We are a family of four and travel to many family spots, and am so happy to have finally found a great family place to be
Castle Creek deserves a far better rating then what you gave them. Perhaps you should revisit, because I am disappointed with your review, and am glad I went to visit regardless of what your review was. It was unfair, and way off. Two thumbs up for Castle Creek! We had a blast!

I do not understand the review this organization did on this course since in 2003 they were voted best minigolf on the north shore. They now take credit cards, have added go carts and re vamped some of the dull holes and made a good place even better.They also have a daily special, this place is a hidden jewel!!!

Given the land values around the North Shore of
Massachusetts, and lack of family fun activities outdoors, it is remarkable
that the owners decided to build a mini golf and home made
ice cream business. The price is justified. Two other courses in
the absolute madness of
over-development all over the
Drawback: no credit cards-cash only. No ATM--but plenty nearby.
Easy to find and worth the

Castle creek is a little cheap but also serves good ice cream.
