Mini Golf Course Gatlinburg Attractions

No Tee Times Necessary

Folks who vacation at Carr’s Northside Cottages enjoy the many opportunities for family time that are possible both onsite and around town. When you and your kids have splashed around in the pool as much as you can and are looking to spend a few hours in family-friendly competition, you might consider a few rounds of mini-golf. Gatlinburg boasts several options to satisfy everyone’s inner putter, but these three offer something a bit unique.

Gatlinburg Hillbilly Mini Golf

Yep… That’s an Outhouse

Hillbilly Golf has been around forever. If you came to Gatlinburg as a kid, you probably played this course that bills itself as the “World’s Most Unusual,” and for good reason. Would anyone else build a golf course on the side of a mountain? That’s part of the charm of the place. You ride the incline 300 feet straight up the mountain (a treat for the kids before the golf even begins) to the two 18-hole courses full of “mountaineer hazards.” Along the way, you’ll knock your ball past Appalachian-themed farm equipment and moonshine stills, which seem to be everywhere these days. A round of mini-golf here will teach restraint: if you hit the ball too hard, off the mountain it’ll go.

Ripley’s Davy Crockett Mini-Golf also offers a country theme, but in a completely different way. Playing off of Tennessee hero Davy Crockett, the two 18-hole courses are nicely laid out and easy to navigate. Plenty of animated animal characters add to the experience as you putt putt your way through. You might not feel like the king of the wild frontier when you finish, but the place is charming and is great fun for adults and kids alike. If you’re also planning to visit the Aquarium, you can combine your miniature golf and the aquarium as part of a package deal.

Gatlinburg outdoor and indoor mini golf

1 Indoor Course, 2 Outdoor Courses

Fort Fun’s Old Gatlinburg Golf & Games offers a little bit of everything, sort of a one-stop-shop for family fun. Play mini-golf, then laser tag, or bumper cars, or gem mining. Everyone in the family will find something to do here. The two outdoor courses offer opportunities to learn a little area history at each hole. Both the Old Town Square course and the Old Mountain Trail course will teach you a little bit as you play. The nine-hole indoor mini golf course is open rain or shine and uses a undersea theme in blacklight.

After you’ve putted around town, you can roll on back to Carr’s for a little rest and relaxation before you swing out to more adventure.
