Myrtle Beach Unveils Miniature-Golf Trail, Celebrating a Rich Legacy in a Fun New Light

Myrtle Beach Unveils Miniature-Golf Trail

In a delightful twist to its prestigious title as the “Golf Capital of the World,” Myrtle Beach has introduced an innovative tourism venture that adds a whimsical note to its golfing fame. The newly launched Myrtle Beach Mini-Golf Trail is designed to draw avid golfers and casual players into a lighter version of the sport that has long been a staple of the area’s family-friendly allure.

The Mini-Golf Trail features an impressive lineup of over 30 miniature golf courses across the Grand Strand. Each course on the trail offers a digital check-in system where players can collect points as they play, leading to fun rewards such as stickers, T-shirts, and water bottles. This interactive approach enhances the gaming experience and taps into the competitive spirit of visitors in a fun and engaging way.

Karen Riordan, president and CEO of Visit Myrtle Beach, expressed enthusiasm about the project, noting that it accentuates the unique charm and inventive designs of the local mini-golf courses. The initiative is poised to affirm Myrtle Beach’s status as the “Mini-Golf Capital of the World,” adding a playful layer to its golfing heritage.

The timing of the Mini-Golf Trail’s launch could not be more opportune. It comes on the heels of a record-setting weekend at the Myrtle Beach Classic, which saw over 40,000 attendees and marked a historic debut in PGA Tour history. This surge in golfing interest perfectly sets the stage for introducing the Mini-Golf Trail to a broader audience.

Adding to the trail’s charm is the historical significance of mini-golf in Myrtle Beach, which owes much of its early development to James “Poddy” Bryan. Known as the “father of miniature golf,” Bryan’s creative designs have left an indelible mark on the landscape. His legacy is epitomized by Mt. Atlanticus, his final design that opened in 1998 and now features prominently on the trail.

For those eager to embark on this playful adventure, digital passes and a map of the trail are available online, providing easy access to one of Myrtle Beach’s newest attractions.

As Myrtle Beach continues to innovate and celebrate its rich golfing legacy with a twist of fun, visitors are invited to explore this unique aspect of the city’s tourist offerings. Whether you’re a serious golfer or looking for a fun day out with the family, the Myrtle Beach Mini-Golf Trail promises delightful experiences and quirky challenges that are sure to make your visit memorable.
