The name of this place implies that the miniature golf is the center of the attractions at this facility but in reality it’s one of many things going on. This place is a combination of an entertainment center (lots of games for kids), a pizza place (the pizza was quite good) and this 11 hole miniature golf course. This mix means there is a lot of activity happening all at once (especially on a day when the weather outside might not be that good). The creativity at the course was very high. It’s a “trip around the world” themed course and some of the holes were definitely unique. We had never seen a Grand Canyon hole where you actually put in the canyon and the giant Mount Rushmore and Stonehenge were quite impressive. The ski jump hole was also a different take on the long, steep putt and it was quite fun to play a few different times.
There was a fair amount that needed attention on the course though. Most of the holes could benefit from two or three days work of repairs (fixing some of the obstacles as well as some major work needed on the carpets) and a coat of paint or two. Part of why this may be is that the course itself is not supervised (you pay at the desk and course winds its way toward the back of the center, with walls blocking any view by the staff), which means the kids can get rambunctious.
Overall we would recommend that you play this course if you happen to be in the Burlington area (it’s a nice place for some putting and pizza on a winter’s day if you are coming back from a ski trip). You can’t beat the price and their website has several coupons (we played 2 for 1, so for $5 for two people all you can play if quite reasonable).
