It's a place family has gone for years. We stopped by on a Saturday at 8:15pm to play a round. Apparently the lights are broken and they dont let anyone tee off after 8pm. Feels like they have accepted their fate at the hands of...More

Went with my wife on our way up to Mackinac. This course brings back classic mini golf where the holes themselves provide great fun. We also played at the Pirate Cove course next door and preferred this one.
