25 Years of Minature Golf on Gulf Shores Island

Approaching the island of Gulf Shores on Gulf Shores Parkway (Hwy. 59) the large pirate ship with a sailor dangling precariously from the crow’s nest is hard to miss. As you get closer you realize the sailor is a dummy and the ship sits squarely in the middle of a very cool mini-golf course appropriately named Pirate’s Island Adventure Golf.

I’ve played at this attraction many times over the years and actually played again on Sunday afternoon and recently learned that this enjoyable 36-hole miniature golf course has been open for 25 years. I know I’m getting older but this was a shock, especially since it is so well maintained that one would never guess the age of this popular attraction.

Just think how many families and friends have challenged one another to this favorite pastime over the years. Nighttime after a day at the beach and a great seafood dinner is the ideal time to head for Pirate’s Island Adventure Golf for a budget-friendly evening of entertainment.
