Playing mini golf is a vacation tradition! Whether you’re planning a fun date night with your sweetheart or you’re looking for an activity that the whole family will love, a round of putt putt is always a good decision. To help you make the most of your next getaway, Eagles Ridge Resort has put together a guide to enjoying the best mini golf in Pigeon Forge and the Smoky Mountains.

1. Professor Hacker’s Lost Treasure Golf

Professor Hacker’s Lost Treasure Golf is inspired by the adventures of the (fictional) explorer and archeologist Duffer A. Hacker. In the 1920s, Hacker led two expeditions to the Fogclift Islands off the coast of South America in search of the ancient diamond and gold mines hidden underground. When you visit Professor Hacker’s, you’ll take a “mining train” to the start of the attraction’s two mini golf courses. Featuring a temple, a volcano, caves, and waterfalls, the courses at Professor Hacker’s are beautifully designed.

2. Ripley’s Old MacDonald’s Farm Mini GolfRipley's Old MacDonald Farm mini Golf

Ripley’s Old MacDonald’s Farm Mini Golf is home to three different mini golf courses, offering 54 holes of fun! The putt putt at Ripley’s is perfect for kids, since the courses feature lots of sound effects and cartoon animal characters. Be sure to focus extra hard on the 18th hole, because a hole in one will earn you a free game. In addition to the wonderful mini golf, Ripley’s also boasts an awesome arcade.

3. MagiQuest’s Pirate Golf

The MagiQuest castle on the Parkway offers the very best mini golf in Pigeon Forge for a rainy day. Pirate Golf is an indoor blacklight putt putt course that is themed around a Caribbean pirate village. With a pirate ship, a giant skull, palm trees, and more decorations, this immersive course is very unique. After your game of mini golf, you can take advantage of MagiQuest’s other activities, which include a Harry Potter-esque role-playing game, a laser challenge, and the world’s largest mirror maze.

Although it is most famous for its go-karts, The Track also offers a superb mini golf course. Rather than cliche obstacles like windmills, The Track favors more original decorations, such as jungle animals, waterfalls, and dark tunnels. Your family will also love The Track’s blaster boats, bumper cars, kiddie rides, bungee jumping adventure, and arcade.
