Paradise Adventures

Paradise Adventures has three great locations in North Myrtle Beach, each with a different course and theme. Mutiny Bay is a 36-hole, all outdoor adventure. It’s easy to spot due to its enormous pirate ship that can be seen along Highway 17. A great pirate battle breaks out every 30 minutes. Cancun Lagoon is next and features a huge replica of an ancient Mayan pyramid. Playing this air-conditioned indoor/outdoor course is a great way to cool off while having fun! If you’re looking for a great place to visit on a rainy day, Molten Mountain has a course indoors. You can also play outdoors next to their 50-foot active volcano which erupts every 30 minutes.

Professor Hacker’s Lost Treasure Golf

Professor Hacker’s Lost Treasure Golf has been a staple in North Myrtle Beach since 1955. Here you’ll find two courses, each perfect for a date night or evening with the kids. The first is the Lost Treasure Golf Course which begins with a train ride to the first hole at the top of a mountain. As you play your way down the mountain, you’ll hear the story of Duffer A. Hacker, a man who led an expedition to search for gold and diamond mines. Players can attempt to discover prehistoric bones, statues, and hidden treasure during their game.
The second course is the Dinosaur Adventure Course, which features an 85-foot long steamship, waterfalls, streams, dinosaurs, a hot air balloon, and more! Follow Professor Hacker’s adventure on a mysterious island that contains dinosaurs. You’ll love exploring the lost world while playing through the course.

Hawaiian Rumble Golf & Batting Cages

For a taste of Hawaii in North Myrtle Beach, stop by Hawaiian Rumble Golf & Batting Cages. The one-of-a-kind landscaping lends to a unique mini-golfing experience. Enjoy the sounds of birds while playing the 18-hole course, or step out to the back deck to feed to resident turtles! The course is also home to the United States ProMiniGolf Association that holds the Crocodile Rocks Master’s, a national competition.

Mayday Golf

Mayday Golf has two courses, each contributes to an ongoing story. The first, Mayday Mountain, puts players at the site of a plane crash. Players must make their way through the tropical island to rescue. It’s an 18-hole course that is bound to challenge!
The second course is Rescue Falls, which features a real Huey rescue helicopter. The brave players are going to be rescued; they just have to make their way through 18 more holes. You’ll be taken past the Falls, a waterfall that tends to catch visitors off-guard.
