My son really enjoyed this place a few years ago when we last vacationed in Pigeon Forge. He was around 2 at the time and is now 7 (time flies). He used to call it "E-I-E-I Golf Clubs" as in the E-I-E-I-O, Old MacDonald had a... etc. Now we have a 2 (nearly 3) year old in addition to the other child. They both really enjoyed the courses. It was one of my oldest sons favorites when we first came and it was one of the favorite stops for both of them this year.
We played early in our visit and we're glad we did as we had a lot of free games afterwards. We bought a package deal when we went to the aquarium and one of our other Ripley's attractions we decided on was here. My youngest was still under the 3 and up cutoff so he played for free. After we first played my wife and youngest hit the hole in one on 18. Couldn't believe it, but the little guy nailed it. We came back the next night to use our 2 free tickets from the hole in one shots on 18. We were standing in a decent sized line because we still needed to buy another ticket when a man who had just finished with his family walked up and handed me 3 free tickets that they had just won but couldn't use. Very cool... very nice of them! So, we played that night for free and won 0 tickets on 18. We then came back a 3rd night to play the last remaining course. We still had our 2 free tickets from our first trip and needed to buy 1 more. We bought 1 for our oldest son as his were cheaper than ours. We used a coupon for $2 off which I had on my phone. The lady gave me some guff about it not being on paper but I persisted and she took it. I actually, had a paper copy in the car, and there was one in the booklets by the bathrooms, but my feet hurt (from walking to Clingman's Dome barefooted -- yea, fun) and I didn't want to walk either direction to run a paper copy down.
The courses are all pretty easy. Each cup sits in the middle of a depressed area of the green so in most cases the ball gravitates to the hole. The edges of the greens are all lined with solid concrete so the balls really bounce when banking. I never really like playing brick or concrete walls but the kids don't mind. It is very active, loud, usually crowded but very enjoyable for the whole family. Don't believe their "for best results shoot here" signs... play the walls and stay away from the animatronic trigger points for best results.
Also, wander around with two cute kids towards the end of the week and you might score some free tickets!
