Okay, that is just a little bit about the attraction, so let’s get into more about each course. Yes, you read that right! There are 3 different courses all in one spot. And all bring the best bits of the Wildwood area.
Starlux Mini Golf Boardwalk Course
Let’s start with the signature Boardwalk course.
If you have ever traveled to Wildwood NJ, or if you have heard about the Jersey Shore points, then you might be familiar with the famous Boardwalk. This course was designed to show off all things you love about the Wildwood Boardwalk. My favorite part of this course is that it is played on a wood plank space above the other two courses. It gives you a great view of the surrounding areas.
During the evenings, it is beautiful to see all the bright and shiny lights of the Boardwalk and surrounding areas. The other wonderful thing about this course is all the iconic things you know and love.
The putting tees even feature fun Wildwood facts.
It really is a great time to spend with family. But beware, it can get very competitive, at least it does in our family!
The Ocean Course At Starlux Mini Golf
Next up, is the Ocean Course.
I will be the first to admit that this is my favorite course, especially on a warm and sunny day. Most of it is played underneath the shade of the Boardwalk Course. You have to love the thought they put into the planning of this attraction, after all everyone knows the song “Under The Boardwalk”.
This course has multiple opportunities for your to end up in the water. And I can say that it isn’t a round of golf if I am not scooping out my ball with the fish net.
It is such a pretty and well-thought-out course, and I know that you will enjoy the challenge of playing it!
The Beach Course At Starlux Mini Golf
Last, but certainly not least, we have the Beach course, a favorite of my kids.
Of course, you can’t go to the Shore without spending some time on the beach. Here is a little about the beach course. Sand and sun combine for a fun course that is geared toward precision and accuracy.
This course was my absolute nemesis. Sand and I don’t mix one bit. So, while my putting stank and put me into last place, I did enjoy looking at the fun scenery.
The beach course is definitely a putter’s course, and my husband outputs us each and every time. Despite losing horribly, I would have played this course several more times.
What Happens Once Your Done Golfing?
Once you are finished golfing, you have probably worked up an appetite. Never fear, you don’t have to go far in order to satisfy your hunger.
Located right there is a Kohr Bros stand where you can enjoy a victory ice cream cone. For me, that signals a perfect end to a fun time. And never fear, you can walk off any ice cream calories on your way to the Boardwalk and the beach.
I hope this gave you some general information as to why you need to visit Starlux Mini Golf the next time you are in Wildwood NJ. Fun for the entire family and perfect for vacation memories.
