Driving along down Highway 1 on the way to Key West, you will spy a huge restaurant and miniature golf course that is calling your name.
My 8 year old begged me to stop! And we are so glad we did.
This is the southernmost miniature golf course in the United States and the ONLY miniature golf course in the Florida Keys! And we love miniature golf!
The colour coded golf balls, and putters make it easy for the whole family.
Once we had selected our ball, we headed to off to play.
The area is lovely and shady, so even though it is hot, we felt quite cool.
It is designed so smaller children can play and achieve a good score.
Yet there were a few challenges along the way.
This included this nice little hill, where the ball dropped through a tube first.
This was a hit with my 8 year old.
He managed to score a Par 2 and was pretty pleased.
The layout is quite beautiful, and even though there were several families (and a few adults) playing, we all moved along pretty well, without delay.
Then came a really great challenge.
He hits the ball into the waterway.
But the water carries it down, and he manages a hole in one!
We were ready for the 18th hole, and for a nice cool drink at the end.
Here was a lovely shady area near the amenities where we sat and enjoyed an iced drink.
What a fun way to end our day!
