If somebody said you could feed live alligators while putting your ball through tropical rainforests and tranquil waterfalls you would question their sanity. But at Congo River in Orlando they encourage it.
An African themed complex, two courses are on offer with different difficulty levels and they’re plenty of distractions for the kids from a scavenger hunt where you have to look for objects on the course or an arcade next door.
Putting Edge[frame_center src=”https://www.yourgolftravel.com/19th-hole/wp-content/uploads/2015/01/Putting-Edge.jpg” width=”600″ height=”400″]Putting Edge[/frame_center]
Although Putting Edge in Orlando doesn’t offer the same over-the-top challenges and towering waterfalls, it makes up for it in its own unique way. Any bad weather and it’s no problem as the complex is indoors but their glow in the dark feature gives an eerie and mysterious feel. With a design that evokes an undersea adventure, the array of colours is sure to capture the imagination of any child.

Owned by the same people who created the Congo River course, the Hollywood Drive-In Golf has remarkably combined the love of films with golf to create a highly entertaining complex.
With two courses, one is themed around horror films and the other is 50’s scifi films. Both have captured the identity perfectly of what they set out to achieve with gags, soundtracks and in-jokes. At night, it feels like you’re playing a completely different course. Extensive lighting brings characters to life and offers a course that is like no other.

Over 300 tropical acres on the Miami coastline, a $150 million transformation has gone into making the resort top of the range.
Waterfalls, bridges and island greens play havoc on the course that is kept in perfect condition.
