The safari course isn't as interesting as the pirate course, but it has a panther looking into a tree, a revolving gorilla, another gorilla on top of a mountain and a family of elephants. The obstacles aren't particularly interesting, but there is a lion in a cage with a gate that opens and closes and a revolving hunter wearing camouflage gear with two beasts at his feet.
The Polynesian course has the most challenging holes, including a wooden totem pole and a surfer on a tilting board. Another hole has two canoeists using paddles that create an obstruction. And, of course, there are many opportunities to drop the ball into pools of water. The course is decorated with skulls mounted on poles, totem poles and pink birds.
Gold Rush Territory
At Gold Rush Territory, 125th Street and Coastal Highway, you'll quickly get in the western mood by paying for your golf game at the National City Bank. The course is decorated with footbridges over ponds with tall grasses.
There is a hole at the top of the waterfall, and the course has Indian tepees and a cemetery for departed cowboys. There is also an adjoining pond for bumper boats.
There are two courses here at Old Pro, 68th Street and Coastal Highway: a dinosaur course and the indoor underwater course, which hasn't opened yet.
The outdoor dinosaur course has a cave man with a club in the direct path of the hole and rock formations to create obstacles for the ball. Many of the holes have dips and curves to make it more difficult. There are also shaded benches throughout the course, which is carefully landscaped.
Maui Miniature Golf
When it opens in July, the course at 57th Street and Coastal Highway will have a tropical island theme with waterways, rocks
The course, at 51st Street and Coastal Highway, is situated around a large pond with a stone waterfall at the far end. The SS Minnow is shipwrecked in the pond and there is an alligator poised to attack.
Decorated with lawn grass, palm trees and green plants, it is a gentle curving course without tough obstacles.
This course, at 41st Street and Coastal Highway, looks like its sister course on 51st Street with the water, green grass and palm trees. There is also a large stone waterfall and a fountain in the middle of the pond.
The first hole has a steep incline to make it challenging, and several of the holes have subtle dips and hills that keep the ball rolling in unexpected directions.
Jolly Roger Treasure and Jungle Golf
Players enter Treasure Golf, 30th Street and Coastal Highway, through the large pirate ship in the parking lot. The holes are spread over a large area and there is a waterfall created out of an interesting rock formation. Ramps carry players over some of the other Jolly Roger amusement rides.
Jungle Golf has a large pond with an elephant and a pink flamingo wading in it. The top of the 17th hole is a great place to view the amusement park and has a place to sit under a thatched-roof hut.
Old Pro Castle and Circus Golf
Castle Golf, Robin Drive (28th Street) and Philadelphia Avenue, is a fanciful course with a large castle filled with guards in full rTC armor. There is even a maiden waving a pink hankie from one of the castle turrets. Some of the course is played around the castle moat and then inside the castle among the encased warriors.
It is dramatic to play golf in the midst of a castle under siege. There is even a torture gallows at one hole, which is "the cheater's reward."
Outside, one hole sits behind the gravestones of "The Blind Knight, Sir Lost His Lance, King Ding A Ling and The Mean Queen."
Although not as dramatic as the castle course, the circus course has more difficult obstacles. There are several animated figures such as a clown, seal and monkeys. At one hole, the ball must be aimed through a cannon and there is a revolving bear tamer.
Old Pro Polynesian Golf
An older and compact course decorated with totem poles and skulls mounted on sticks, it is one of the more challenging courses to play. Located at 23rd Street and Philadelphia Avenue, the course has a narrow arched bridge to shoot the ball across, and it is difficult to keep the ball from landing in the water below. Each of the Old Pro courses has an Old Pro golfer, but this one is dressed in a loincloth.
This is a well-maintained course at Kingfish Street (18th Street) and Philadelphia Avenue, with lush green grass, palm trees and a tall stone waterfall. The central pond and flowering plants are the main attractions with holes that bend in various shapes.
Sunburst, 16th Street and Philadelphia Avenue, is one of the older courses in town. One hole is on the deck of a small sailboat, and there is a house and a lighthouse. It is carefully landscaped with plenty of green plants.
The charming course is more challenging than it appears with dips, inclines and narrow slots to shoot the ball through.
