We had just spent the previous few days playing the courses at Universal and Disney, so we knew everything else in the Orlando area probably wouldn’t live up to those high standards. Nevertheless, we were interested in playing as many courses as we could squeeze in. After meeting a friend for lunch in downtown Celebration, we found Pirate’s Cove in Kissimmee nearby.
Birdie – Like the other Pirate’s Cove brand mini golf courses, this one was on a huge property. It housed two courses which moved up and down a mini-mountainous terrain with a very impressive central waterfall feature. The course was clean and fairly well-maintained and featured a variety of pirate-themed props including lots of signage, a wooden shackles photo op, cannons, barrels of rum, treasure, and the like. Benches throughout provided a place to sit and rest. There was no grand pirate ship, however, there was a play-through cave. The overall gameplay faired just above average, with some fun use of the undulating terrain. While not the most unique course we played, Pirate’s Cove is a solid mini golf experience.
