More than 100 championship golf courses are a short driving distance from Myrtle Beach, but you can putt-putt your way up and down the Grand Strand at some of the many miniature golf courses. As a top vacation destination with an affinity for golf, Myrtle Beach naturally has dozens of putt-putt courses to choose from. With themes ranging from prehistoric dinosaurs, shipwrecked pirates and exploding volcanoes, the miniature golf craze is alive and well in Myrtle Beach. And it's not just kid's play; some of the top national and international tournaments are held right here on the Strand, like the nationally televised U.S. Prominigolf Open at Hawaiian Rumble in North Myrtle Beach. Some of the early putt-putt courses of the 1950s craze are still operating in Myrtle Beach, like Mount Olympicus and Captain Hook's. Several new and more modern layouts also have been designed in recent years, including the Shark Attack Adventure Golf on Myrtle Beach's downtown oceanfront. The old Chesterfield Inn was torn down to make room for this eye-catching attraction, which includes an arcade, souvenir shop and snack bar. And for those summer days when its too hot or rainy for a round of putt-putt seems, check out the air-conditioned Cancun Lagoon for indoor/outdoor play.
