I grew up in St. Joe and visited Cool Crest all the time as a kid. I used to just love coming here to play mini golf. But, on our recent trip back, we went as a family to play and were really surprised (and not in a good way) by all the changes they've made to Cool Crest. Sure,... More

This was a great place to go as a child, very welcoming kid friendly atmosphere. Now with a child of my own who loves to miniature golf it feels extremely unwelcoming and children seemed to be frowned upon. I understand not wanting children to run wild but your judged before you even walk in the gate especially if you have... More

If you are in St. Joe take the time to go and play some good old fashioned garden golf at Cool Crest. This family owned business and brought joy to me and my family for years! They always seems to be updating the place with a new statue or two which are so visually pleasing, but to play a round... More

Cool Crest does not let young children play on their course, even with proper adult supervision! The management follows golfers, making sure everyone is following their rules, which makes people feel uncomfortable.

We decided on a whim to take our two girls mini golfing. They were SUPER excited. Get there and they wouldn't let our youngest play. She would turn 5 in 4 days! The older lady said they couldn't let us play because she wasn't 5 yet. We were so mad and kids were crying because they couldn't end up playing.... More

My wife of 11 years and I made a tradition of traveling 1.5 hours to St Joseph to golf at Cool Crest, eat out and shop on Memorial Day each year. In recent years, we had been going more often, up to three times a year. When my son was 1, we went there and he had a great time.... More

We live 1 hour 15 minutes away from Cool Crest. Our four sons have played on this golf course since they were a few years old. Wonderful memories. We have pictures of them at all ages on the bench in front of the elephant bush sculpture. They are now parents, and we took one of our grandkids there last night... More
