Monster Mini Golf – Coral Springs, FL

Played on December 28, 2016

Reviewed by Mr. Tee

Our major mini golf binge continued as our holiday trip moved from Orlando to southern Florida. Even though the weather was beautiful outside compared to our home in Minnesota, we felt compelled to make a special trip indoors to a Monster Mini Golf course since few of their franchises are located near us in the Midwest. We opted for the Coral Springs location based on photos we saw online and were in for a real treat.

Review

Birdie – We adore mini golf in all of its forms but our experience with blacklight courses have been a mixed bag. We’ve played few high-quality putting experiences in glow-in-the-dark environments but on average, we’ve found these indoor layouts to be lacking in play and design. I thought the Kiss theme of the Vegas location was reason enough to rank the course high but based on our experience in Coral Springs, it appears Monster Mini Golf solved the challenge of how to make substantial glow-in-the-dark mini golf courses. The cohesive monster theme coupled with chatty characters, interactive activities, and well maintained playing area made for a fantastic evening. The staff were incredibly generous in talking with us about the course and dug deep to find me a t-shirt! Definitely looking forward to exploring more Monster courses.
