Looking for an amazing mini golf experience in the North Myrtle Beach area? Professor Hacker’s Lost Treasure Golf is one of the best options out there. The course was specifically designed after Professor Hacker’s treasure expeditions to the Fog Cliff Islands in South America in the 1920’s.

The course even kicks off with a ride in an old mining cart that takes you to the first hole, modeled after the one Professor Hacker discovered many years ago. 

Lost Treasure includes two 18-hole miniature golf courses, the ‘gold’ and ‘diamond’ options, each with challenging and fun obstacles along the way! Both 18-hole courses allow you to play through or on top of the stunning 85 foot long steamship at Professor Hacker’s Dinosaur Adventure.

Mutiny Bay Miniature Golf is a premier 36-hole outdoor golfing destination that’s been open since 2001. This particular mini golf course offers an exciting twist: every 30 minutes, golfers are treated to an action-packed pirate battle reminiscent of something straight out of the Pirates of the Caribbean. 

This “battle,” complete with cannon fire, water blasts, and explosive effects, takes place on a massive pirate ship — a ship so big you can spot it from the highway! Several holes at Mutiny Bay are set directly on the ship itself, so you can join in on all the interactive action!

Ready to dive into a prehistoric world? You can do exactly that at Professor Duffer A. Hacker's Dinosaur Adventure in North Myrtle Beach. This unique mini golf venue boasts two exciting 18-hole courses: the T.rex and the Raptor. No matter which you choose, everywhere you look, you'll be surrounded by dinos throughout the experience.

Perhaps the most striking feature of Professor Hacker’s Dinosaur Adventure Golf is the striking 85-foot steamship, the R.S. Jurassic Explorer. Its presence is tied to Professor Hacker's unexpected discovery. According to the story, in 1930, after being blown off course, he stumbled upon a canyon teeming with dinosaurs. While waiting for his ship, he explored this land, only to find the ship stranded upon his return. This story sets the stage for this golf course. 

As you make your way through the course, you won’t just be surrounded by dinosaurs but also turquoise waterfalls and dense jungles. If you’re looking for a mini golf experience in North Myrtle Beach with a setting that blows you away, this is it!
