The Caddie Shak has some fun stuff! The activities add up in price quite quickly, though. There are two miniature golf courses (Highlander & Olde). They said Highlander was more challenging, but we didn't find they were all that different. The courses were certainly really nice at one time. The water features & setup is great. However, they could use some maintenance. Several have features that are blocked off (a second way to reach the green that doesn't work), and numerous greens seem angled (un-intentionally) so that the balls all end up in the same spot and against the wall; you can't even move the ball away to putt as it rolls right back due to the angle. These could be really great with some maintenance. We still had a great time, but it would be nicer if they put some work into it. The go-karts don't go super fast, but they're fast enough. I got spun out & hit once, and it rattles you. We did the regular track (I think they call it "Grand Prix"), and it was good. The course has lots of turns, and we all really enjoyed the race. The bumper boats are not really aptly named; they move VERY slowly and don't "bump" much at all. However, it was a hot day (over 90), and the squirt guns on the boat worked well enough for us to have a fantastic time squirting one another. This ended up being the most fun part of our visit for me. I thought it would be a waste, but it was such fun. I recommend these. The staff was hit or miss. The girls behind the counter were pretty apathetic. There were several people waiting, and one girl waited on the first person in line while the others stood around, not seeming to do much. They also weren't super helpful explaining the purchase options and what would get us the best deal for our money. Others around the facility were friendly & helpful, though. There's not a ton to do in this area in the summer, and we enjoyed a few hours at the Caddie Shak. I'd recommend it, but just know going in that it's neither a cheap diversion nor in top condition.

My family and I went to Caddie Shak for a game of miniature golf. We chose the Highlands course that usually has the waterfalls. Well they did not have the water running and the water that was laying around in the puddles was smelly and stagneg. There were weeds protruding on to the course and debris on each of the holes. The wooden boards for the walkways are rotting away or broken. Anything that is painted is chipping away. All the signs that say to watch your step, are knocked down, fading, or broken. So my advice is to find a nicer amusement area for your family to spend time. Preferably a place that takes pride in safety and appearance.

We visited as a family of 5 in August 2018 as a quick stop on the way home. We purchased an 'hour wristband' for $10/pp. The claim to offer many attractions, but they are all run down and in poor condition. Their go karts were alright, and they even had a 'rookie track' which my five-year-old could drive himself. But the 'bumper boats' were boats in a green, algae-filled pool of water. The 'boats' barely moved without much "bump" and their "sprayers" did not water (not sure if I wanted to get sprayed by that water anyhow). The miniature golf was not much better - old and dingy. The other rides are decrepit carnival spinning rides. If you want to burn money for an hour, it'll do.

My husband and I had a rare night out to celebrate our anniversary. On our way up to dinner, we saw the mini golf course and thought it would be a fun way to wrap up our evening. We finished up dinner and I checked to make sure that they would still be open with enough time to complete a mini golf course. We paid at the entrance and then made our way up to the top to get the golf clubs. No one directed us to where we could get balls, clubs, and the score card. We finally found the items and then went to the course. We got through ten holes when they turned off the lights on the course and left us in the dark. This was still a half hour before they were supposed to close. We paid $10.90 for ten holes and a pretty cruddy experience. Definitely not worth it in my opinion. We decided to just find our way back to the top using our cell phones as flashlights and got back up to the top. We did not ask for a refund and we did not make a scene (we wanted to end our anniversary in a more positive manner) but I did decide to write a review in case others wish to try this place out. I will say that we had a great time with the first ten holes and if they had kept the lights on and not closed early, I probably would have given them the full five stars. But there was no warning, no explanation, and no apology and they left us in a potentially dangerous situation while trying to find our way back to the building in the dark. Lower your expectations if you end up trying this place. Good luck!

I found a deal for the 3 hour wrist band for 12.50 each, so I decided to surprise my son for his 6th birthday with the tickets. Had my family of 4 paid full price, it would've come out to $108. Let me tell you, that price is not worth it. The mini golf course had litter throughout the entire course and had the appearance of not being cleaned daily, the waterfall was not working on the golf course, the go karts looked old and run down ( especially the kiddie go karts), the arcade is a joke with very like to do in there and the staff is less than friendly and not very welcoming. I gave it 3 stars because both children had a good time and at the end of the day, that's what matters to me. But, we definitely won't be returning to Caddie Shak and we only live about a half an hour away.
