Mini-golf course on the way to Universal Orlando Resort?
A tipster tells me that Universal Orlando is working on an adventure mini golf course, which would be built just west of the CityWalk theaters, in between the theaters and Universal Boulevard.
A permit application (ENG2011-00237) for site work to prepare for the course is in the pipeline in the City of Orlando's planning office. (At least it was when I searched the office's online database today.) The designer of the course appears to be Adventure Golf Design & Development of Traverse City, Michigan. They're the folks behind the Congo Golf courses you might have seen around Central Florida.
No word on when construction might begin, or when the course would open.
Update, May 11: Confirmed, with details.
I've always thought that the only thing missing from Central Florida was mini golf. Bravo to the ideas of these ground-breaking pioneers!
Nice for the those who are staying on property at Universal, but unless they get their pricing right then it's going to be hard for them to attract anyone else.
Playing golf based on movies? :P EPIC :)
I'm down. I love me some mini golf!
"in between the theaters and universal blvd." Do you have a picture where you can point out where exactly? I can't visualize where exactly it would go.
Hey, they stole my idea! I proposed a miniature golf course as part of my hotel for Universal Orlando in Theme Park Apprentice 2. Maybe they do read our proposals for ideas! No, really, it could happen...I think.....maybe...uh....
who cares in Flordia it's way to hot to go mini golfing anyway. I honestly never went to the two in Disney I probaly never will. They should put the course near the resorts not at the city walk because when guests come back from the rides the kids can play mini while the parents take showers and get change for later on activites. At the city walk there are to many things to do and I don't see adults playing mini golf either unless they have kids.
Andy Milio, why do you always think that Universal is about 'riding the movies'? We are not in the 1990s anymore.
This is the most exciting thing I have ever heard of... Playing Mini golf in the HOT Florida sun… This is better than WWOHP… I am booking a Tee time right now…
Yea ANOTHER mini-golf course! Because there isn't one on every block in Orlando. Sorry, I love mini-golf but couldn't resist. Well, there is plenty of land (oddly enough)and a Universal style course would be pretty cool. Maybe they can incorporate that into one of the City Walk all inclusive passes. Would be handy not to have to try to park on I-Drive just to do mini-golf
Mini golf all the way. Not enough courses around.
Wow not much love for mini golf...
I think that a mini-golf course would be a great idea in Universal! Each course can be based on an awarding winning or blockbuster movie!
