Putt putt is a classic family vacation activity, and Pigeon Forge has no shortage of places to play 18 holes! When you stay at The Inn on the River, you will be minutes away from the city’s most popular mini golf courses. To help you make the most of your vacation, we have put together a guide to the top three Pigeon Forge putt putt spots:
1. Professor Hacker’s Lost Treasure Golf
Professor Hacker’s Lost Treasure Golf is a favorite among our guests. This attraction includes two 18 hole courses that are inspired by the fictional adventures of Professor Duffer A. Hacker, a famous explorer who has discovered gold and diamond mines off the coast of South America. The two courses take the “lost treasure” theme seriously, and even include a mining train that takes guests to the first hole!
With caves, smoking volcanoes, waterfalls, a pirate ship, and more fun decorations, Professor Hacker’s is always a hit with kids. Be sure to pay extra attention when you play the “mystery hole”, because a hole-in-one will earn you a free game! Professor Hacker’s is just a 3 minute drive from The Inn on the River.
Crave Golf Club is the most delicious mini golf course in Pigeon Forge. The courses are candy-land themed and painted in vibrant colors! Unique to this course, there’s 38 holes to try your best putt putt skills at, and it offers an indoor course along with an outdoor rooftop course!
And if that isn’t sweet enough, Crave Golf Club has more to offer! You’ll also find a “mini” bowling alley, a candy shop, and a gourmet milkshake bar. Crave Golf Club is only 4 minutes away from The Inn on the River.
3. Pirate Golf at MagiQuest
Pirate Golf has the distinction of being one of the only indoor Pigeon Forge putt putt courses. Located inside of the MagiQuest castle, this great 18 hole blacklight course is ideal for a rainy day or the winter. As you probably guessed by the name, Pirate Golf is set in a Caribbean pirate village complete with palm trees, a sunken ship, hidden treasure, and a giant skull. If you hit a hole in one on the 18th hole, you will receive a special song from Blackbeard and his crew.
MagiQuest is also home to three other great attractions: the world’s largest mirror maze, a Mission Impossible-style laser challenge, and a magical roleplaying adventure. The attractions can be bundled for one low price, so it’s easy to spend the whole day at the castle! MagiQuest is a 3 minute walk from The Inn on the River.
The Inn on the River boasts one of the best locations in Pigeon Forge! In addition to the superb Pigeon Forge putt putt courses described above, our hotel is minutes away from The Track, The Tomb, Mellow Mushroom, Calhoun’s, Smoky Mountain Brewery, Grand Majestic Theater, Hollywood Wax Museum, and so many other amazing attractions and restaurants.
