Springtime in Gatlinburg means a lot of fun options for enjoying the great outdoors. You can take a scenic drive through the Great Smoky Mountains National park, plan a picnic by the water, or saddle up and enjoy a stroll through the lush mountainsides. You can even experience the thrill of zip lining high through the Appalachian trees! There are lots of favorite activities that keep visitors returning to the Smokies year after year—but who knew that one of them would be mini golf!
One miniature golf course in Gatlinburg that you do not want to miss is Ripley’s Davy Crockett Mini Golf. The 18-hole course offers sweeping views of the Great Smoky Mountains while you play, but more than that, you’ll get an interactive experience you’ll find nowhere else! The fun-filled, animated holes feature steep drops, splits, rolling ramps, and tons of water—even a flushable hillbilly outhouse! You’ll also encounter tons of Smoky Mountain wildlife, like raccoons, bears, chipmunks, opossums, and skunks. Taking you all the way back to the days of Davy Crockett, this miniature golf course will not only challenge you but keep you entertained all along the way!
Of course, if you really want to take it back to the country, you need to check out Gatlinburg’s Hillbilly Golf. Ride the incline 300 feet up to this mountaintop course, and enjoy 18 holes of hillbilly fun! With rock walls, old tractors, and moonshine stills, this mini golf course—dubbed the world’s most unusual—is sure to be something you’ve never experienced and something you won’t soon forget!
Finally, if you’re looking for a course that scores a hole-in-one for family-friendly entertainment, bring your group to Old Gatlinburg Golf and Games. Besides two award-winning, 18-hole mini golf courses that tell the story of the Smoky Mountains while you play, you’ll also find an indoor black light golf course at Old Gatlinburg Golf and Games. So rain or shine, be sure to come and enjoy the course that won “Best Attraction in Landscaping” for the City of Gatlinburg. It will offer plenty of family fun.
