“Now this is a mini-golf course! Fun for any age!”
Reviewed September 7, 2013

We do mini-golf every year when we visit the Cape and the kids always choose Pirate's Cove. We stay in Harwich, so it can be a long drive down a busy Rte 28 (almost 30 minutes), but it's worth it. It's a definitely a popular touristy spot - prepare to pay $35 for a family of 4 for this experience. We've gone at night, but also in the afternoons the last two years. The place is always hopping! This year we had to wait at each hole behind 4 families. It's fun and worth it, but something to keep in mind if you have little ones with short attention-spans and are tight on time. If you ask when you buy your tickets, they'll give you an estimate on how long it should take to play through. It usually takes over an hour.

The 2 elaborate and beautiful courses to choose from are both lots of fun with cannons you can shoot yourself and automatically going off intermittently in the front pond/lower course. We enjoyed the fun pirate facts, props in the caves and great photo op spots (like underneath the pirate hanging from a rope with a shark underneath on the lower course). There is water all around, so you're likely to lose at least one ball if you have little ones who are just learning to play. But they will replace them. They also give the kids cute hats, flags and temporary tattoos when you're done. Our kids always leave there acting like silly pirates! They return to their grandparents house saying "Arrrrr" and "Give me all your treasures!"

“Great place for miniature golf!”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

Clean, well-kept course. Great fun. Two courses to choose from. We first visited Pirate's Cove last year during a vacation trip to the Cape. We returned again this year, and are looking forward to coming back to Pirate's Cove on future trips. The staff is friendly and when you finish the course the kids get a few little souvenirs to take home.

“Best mini golf on the Cape so far”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

We visit and camp on Cape Cod yearly as an end-of-summer tradition. With 2 kids 11 and 13 (& my wife 44), mini putt is a great way to spend the off-beach days. With two courses, Pirate's cove offers a well-maitained facility, with great staff and challenging holes. The price is comparable to more inferior courses, and if you play a second round, the cost is reduced. The gift and snack shop across the lot is great, too.
