Jungle Lagoon is a beautiful place. It has two courses; the Lagoon course, and Jungle course. I think it was built in 1981. I saw a sign with copyright warnings dated. So that's my guess. All the holes here are surrounded with bricks. Any holes with bump boards are painted green. I like the bunkers made on #10 and #13 of the Lagoon course. Their bump boards are green, with rocks showing in the center. The Jungle course has more holes that are bigger and difficult,and also has more of a beautiful relaxing scenery. The plants and landscape are nice. They have statues of animals in both courses. I like the frogs on #9 of Lagoon, and #8 of Jungle. Many holes are hard, some are easy if they're played often. #15 of the Lagoon course, I think is the biggest mind teaser. It's the hole with the kneeling statue. The ball has to be hit between its legs. I can tell the place is old by seeing how its built. There was so much work put into building the courses. I can also compare Jungle Lagoon to Lighthouse Golf, which was on Emerald Isle, NC: * The holes are staggered around a big hill, making every hole have a beautiful scenery of the landscaping, and waterfalls. I like Jungle Lagoon's better. * It has steps made of giant stone and mortar. You don't see places with stairs like that anymore. The only difference with Jungle Lagoon's is the edge of their treads are painted yellow. * Its walkways were also built out of rope and landscape timbers. Their timbers are painted green. Jungle Lagoon is also one of 6 minigolf courses, visited by John Margolies, author of Miniature Golf. He took a pic of #11 of the Lagoon course. Its picture is on page 19 in his book, which was published back in the 1980's.
