The PGA of Mini Golf

By Linda Tancs

Myrtle Beach, South Carolina is a family-friendly destination.  After all, the nearby Children’s Museum of South Carolina has interactive exhibits and programs such as a science lab and a kiddie ATM.  And what could be more family friendly than miniature golf.  Myrtle Beach is known in many circles as the mini golf capital of the world.  So it probably would come as no surprise that the area hosts a Masters National Pro Mini Golf Championship at Hawaiian Rumble, a course sporting a 40- foot lava rock volcano that erupts every 20 minutes or so for a few seconds.  The event, held this year between 14 and 17 October, is the official national championship for top professional mini golfers in America.  It is approximately five and a half miles from Myrtle Beach International Airport and similar distances from Broadway at the Beach and Barefoot Landing.   Look for the Hawaiian Rumble sign at the intersection of Highway 17 and 33rd Avenue South.

Yes, the Children’s Museum is full of interactive exhibits and hands-on fun, however the exhibits are ever changing! Currently, families can visit the Kidz Medical Center, go Gem or Fossil Mining, generate electricity in the It’s Electric Exhibit, ride on the Magic School Bus, discover the differing habitats of animals in the DIscovery Lab and much more.
