Miniature Golf – Gardens Course @ Fantasia Gardens, Dolphin & Swan Hotels

The day after we played at the Sand Course @ Winter Summerland, we went and played the Gardens Course at Fantasia Gardens. Another course we’d never played, another goofy golf course, and not as much fun or as interesting as the Sand Course.

We did not get low scores on this course, however, we greatly enjoyed laughing and the sunshine (although the wind was pretty nasty & definitely screwed with my game). Nick won again… no worries.

The smallest mushroom in the center bobs up and down…

… the idea is to putt your ball into the hole around the little guy.

The optimal first putt will go up the ramp and into the nearest channel…

… thus putting your ball right at the hole.

The snowflake spins and the hole is directly opposite of your tee position.

The tee position puts you directly in line for the hole…

Looks simple huh? Just hit the ball straight… well, the “green” has lots of rills and dips, not as easy as it looks.

One for Asta – Bacchus.

Hit the ball gently so that it goes over the small lip and into a channel that takes it directly to the hole.

The spout is directly under the bushes to the right.

Your best putt will go directly into the crocodile’s mouth and out the other end.

The next hole also includes a hippo…

… she twirls and spins, the idea is to go straight through her pedestal, kinda tough because sometimes it is blocked…

… a closer view of the ballerina.

Another deceptively easy hole (not!), you want to go straight up the ramp and through to the other side…

The next few holes were rather plain, except for this chorus of brooms with full buckets of water.

You want to putt up the ramp and back down through the right channel…

… if you look closely, you can see a sensor in the left channel, this triggers a huge explosion of water…

… here you can see why the right channel is advantageous.
