We continued our Orlando mini golf excursion hunting down any and all courses we could find. This included a handful along International Drive, the City’s main tourist-trap road full of a plethora of gimmicky souvenir shops and second-rate entertainment experiences. Here we stumbled upon Lost Caverns Golf, an adventure style course complete with live gators.
Par – This course had a loose adventure narrative, visually told through waterfalls, caves, thatched huts, mine shafts, themed signage and complete with a scavenger hunt for golden idols. The landscaping was impressive, with undulating terrain that started low, had you work your up to the top of their miniature mountain (where you were rewarded with a grand view overlooking a manmade lake and neighboring hotels), and then looped you back down to where you started. While the gameplay didn’t make use of themed obstacles, it did integrate into the hills and water features are woven into the terrain.
Large course with undulating terrain gave it the adventure feel
