Ocean City, NJ 08226
While in town for O Streetís 3rd Annual $1000 Mini Golf Tournament in 2021, we played our first Goofy Golf just a short walk down the Boardwalk.† Goofy Golf is a style of miniature golf originating in the 1950s that includes obstacles and creatures made of steel and concrete.† There are several remaining around the country.† This course is rumored to be the oldest in Ocean City.
While this course is creative; itís a bit of a hot mess.† The course unfortunately does not play very smoothly and is poorly maintained.† Some holes appear to be more Ďmoderní designs, and do not fit in well with the remaining historic holes.† This is especially evident in the weird cave hole adorned with pool noodles on the back nine.† There is no shade, and the course is brutally hot.† We do not recommend playing it in the middle of the day.
The course does have a rich color palette, and will likely be more fun for the kids.† Itís worth playing this course once, especially considering the price.† However, itís unlikely we would go back considering there are other courses on the Boardwalk that are in far better condition.†
