Whale-In-One Mini-Golf Return
to Maine page
1150 Bar Harbor Rd (Rt 3)
This is an interesting course that is a throw back to the
1950's and 60's. It has a campy, yet
fun, feeling that makes you feel as if you stepped back in time. The course has some interesting sculptures on
the holes, some of which were created with a chainsaw (anyone who has ever
traveled in the woods of New England has seen
these amazing pieces of art. They’re
like year-round ice sculptures). A few
of the holes also are interesting shapes.
For instance, one hole is shaped like a whale and another a lobster (or
lobstah if you're from Maine). The mats are also different colors, ranging
from red to blue to the normal green.
The woman working the course is friendly and kept the landscaping
perfect which is one of the more enjoyable aspects of the course and includes
very soft bushes. Overall, the course
isn't that difficult, but there is the occasional hole that makes scoring a two
very challenging. Naturally, there are
some drawbacks with such a weathered course.
The mats are severely worn in some places and the tee surfaces are
movable. Additionally, the area around
the tee is too narrow for most people to stand comfortably while putting. However, for a $1.85, it is a great bargain
and worth stopping at for a quick game.
