You CAN play miniature golf here for a decent price (by Steamboat standards), there are some other activities, but this mom-and-pop property is tired-feeling and bland.
It was a little over $50 for six of us to play golf—not out of line for resort areas like Florida with a more Adventure Golf approach, but this layout is pure '70s-'80s with unattached landscape brick borders that fell out of place several times, a random rock dropped into a layout here and there, and matted shag carpet hazards. Despite the dated nature of everything, it does seem well-maintained and very clean.
We had several good laughs during our round, but mostly at the rickety hole designs and executions. Not trying to be cruel here, but if you're in the business, upgrade with the times. The balls and putters were more than well used and bordering on junk. I know people tear up these places, but it felt like there was far more going into the bottom line here through the cash register than was invested in keeping the place upgraded and competitive.
We did have some fun because we always do when we're together, but this place needs a fresh look and a facelift. It's a tired property that could be a lot of fun. As it operates now, though, it seems like an easy cash collector as the only game of its type in town.
I don't write this review to tear the place down. You'll find some fun here, but given the beautiful landscape, the way the botanical center has stretched itself, and the gorgeous bike trail along the Yampa, this place needs to get in line and up its game. Just not good enough for the surroundings.
