Cool Crest is located north of downtown, on the Deco District. It was built during that era. There are two courses. One course was being used for a private party, so we golfed on the original course. Banana trees throughout the course will be impressive...More

This mini-golf course is the oldest continually operating one in the US! Built in 1929, it is in the backyard of the original owners' house. There are two 18-hole courses: the original one is made of poured cement, ledges, and simple but well-conceived obstacles, and...More
