What a waste of money. Starts off great, first couple of holes are well thought out, background music and design great.

Hole 3 and onwards, what a mess.

Badly set out, non working holes with what looks like a lack of maintenance. Hole 7 was interesting, golf balls would either get stuck inside the box or lost behind a big pile of paper stuck at the bottom.

After complaining to the guy behind the front counter all we achieved was another golf ball and an attitude of I don't really care.

Onwards we thought, hole 8... some stupid squares on the ground and a laser light show pointed downwards. Hole 12 was interesting hit the ball up the ramp and it would drop down a series of ramps to another green, however the golf ball would only make it to the second ramp then fly off and go in random directions out of the green.

Nearly every hole had something broken on it.

After playing the 14 holes we waited for the rest of the group to turn up and the rude attendant was hanging around ready to snatch the clubs off us before we even had time to reflect the experience mainly because they had over booked and had run out of clubs.

$14 for Adults, $10 for children (no matter what age they were) and no group discounts. Almost a $100 we spent between two families, heres hoping they spend that on some repairs and upgrades.

So overall we felt rushed, it wasn't that enjoyable (this kids didn't leave with a smile on their faces) over priced... all and all not a good experience.

So if you plan on playing mini golf avoid gloputt, should have driven the extra 30 minutes and tried transylvania golf instead.

Took my wife, Dad, Brother and 2 Aunts to Transylvania a couple of months ago - all very impressed.
