Another Beach Putt Putt Adventure

If you have read here long, you know our family loves putt putt.  It was kind of a childhood tradition of mine to attempt to play all the putt putt courses in Myrtle Beach.  Of course, I still haven't managed to accomplish this feat because there are a ton of putt putt courses there.  It is putt putt capital of the world, I tell you!  There are some courses that don't look that appealing to me, but most of them are pretty awesome.  They have so many different themes.  When I was young and even now, the most popular theme was pirates, but there are also dinosaurs, jungles, pyramids, volcanoes, and many more.  Evan, like me, has his favorite places.  We had already played my favorite course earlier in the week so Evan wanted to play his favorite course, the Mayan pyramid course.  Part of this course is inside which makes it nice on a hot day.  Since we did our family photo session close to this putt putt place, we decided we would treat the boys to a game after the session.  Made for a good bribe during the session.  Ha!

By the way, you can call "putt putt" many things.  Most either call it putt putt or mini golf although some of these more fantastical courses call it "adventure golf."

The Mayan pyramid.  We still plan to do a trip to Cancun in our near future so we can see the real thing.

Brody was in a much better mood at this course this year than he was last year.

I let Daddy play this round with the boys.

Evan for the birdie (or eagle, I don't know which).

Brody generally just pushes his ball into the hole.

Evan likes that this course offers additional challenges to the game.  You can spin the wheel and follow the instructions to make it more interesting.  Here he is standing on one leg to putt.

A very near miss.

At the end of this course, you put your ball in the ball return and may be selected as a winner.  Usually you win a free game at one of their affiliate courses, but the employee gave Brody a free slushy for his win.  He shared with Evan.

Evan the Mayan golfer

Yep, Brody was the Mayan girl golfer.

Daddy as a Mayan.

Evan always enjoys seeing the skeleton of the Mayan golfer who apparently broke the rules and was sacrificed to the Mayan putt putt gods.

I actually decided to utilize the course's waterfalls to finally figure out how to take cool waterfall pictures where the water looks smooth.  Now, I want to go see some real waterfalls and photograph them.

  2. What a fun place to play putt putt! Every time you all go, we talk about taking our kids. We need to soon.

  3. I love that this year Sam and Rachel have gotten into playing on their own, a couple of holes ahead of us, and Dave and I can actually be a little competitive. Rachel always pushes her ball into the hole too. She and Brody can play together while Sam and Evan have a real game and you teach me how to take amazing waterfall pictures. Deal?! :)

  4. I love reading about your putt putt adventures each year! Can you believe that we've "known" each other and have been reading each other's blogs for 2 complete years? That's 3 summers worth of putt putt.

    Michael is going to a bachelor party next month at an "adventure golf" place. He probably won't take any pictures though.
