Thank you so much for our lovely evening at cool crest. Such beautiful flowers and lighting. Playing golf with my grandchildren who are twins and often have loud discussions between themselves. No one seemed to mind. Everyone was kind and courteous.

Called to double check the hours and prices for ages. I was going with my husband, 5 year old and 2 year old. Was informed that my 2 year old could not in any way touch the putter even if my hands were on it and he was pretending to do it on his own. The lady on the phone... More

We were very sad that our 3 yr old (who can golf at our golf club) was unable to play. The lady behind the counter was also not friendly. This has always been such a nice, friendly place- however the change of ownership,a few years ago is taking its toll!

Three eighteen hole courses are available. My family of four only played one course. Much shade and cool features on the course we played. Some of the animations are a bit dated but in a cool way as they are nearly antiques. My kids loved trying to find out where the ball would go next when it was hit in... More

Seems to me due to so many negative reviews that I will NOT be taking my family there. Maybe the management should change or see who was working on SO MANY days of bad reviews

If you have Children don't bring them here. They are rude to all Children! It is not the same since they switched owners! They are RUDE! Will not be back! They have raised the price form $5 dollars to $8 then they want to be Rude!

What a shame. As a kid, my family and I loved this place and went often. I remember the older couple being friendly - loving all people. Unfortunately, current staff are rude and unwelcoming. My daughter, who is 4 and a half, discovered mini golf in Branson and wanted "to teach Grandpa how to play". St. Jo is about halfway... More

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
