Without further ado, here are some of our favorite mini golf attractions in Pigeon Forge TN:
8. Sky Pirates of Mermaid Bay
There may be no shortage of mini golf courses in the area, but Sky Pirates of Mermaid Bay will be one of the newest courses when it opens in the summer of 2023.
This new epic mini golf adventure will have an 18-hole indoor course and an 18-hole rooftop pirate-themed course.
It belongs to the same family as other popular mini golf attractions in the area, Toy Box Mini Golf and Crave Mini Golf. (Keep reading to find out more about those courses!)
The Sky Pirates of Mermaid Bay will be located at 2420 Parkway in Pigeon Forge.
Located in a giant castle along the Parkway, it’s hard to miss MagiQuest.
Inside this castle, MagiQuest hosts four main attractions: A MagiQuest treasure hunt game, the Adventure Arcade, the Odyssey Mirror Maze, and last but not least, Pirate Golf.
MagiQuest hosts an 18-hole blacklight mini golf course themed in a Caribbean pirate village. And, if you score a hole-in-one on the 18th hole, you might be serenaded by Blackbeard and friends.
Pirate Golf is an indoor course, making it perfect in any weather condition.
Pricing for golf is $12.99 per adult and $10.99 per child at the time of this writing. MagiQuest is located at 2491 Parkway in Pigeon Forge. To learn more, visit their website.
Also, MagiQuest will occasionally offer discounts on Groupon.
6. Ripley’s Old MacDonald’s Farm Mini Golf
I love a good Ripley’s attraction. In fact, the Smoky Mountains are home to the most Ripley’s attractions of anywhere in the world, making it a good opportunity to take advantage of their combo passes and visit even more attractions in Gatlinburg.
This course features 54 holes of the old days with “down on the farm” family fun. And it includes animated barnyard characters like pigs and chickens, water features and interactive elements.
At the time of this writing, mini golf for adults is $16.99 and $11.99 for children.
Remember, if you buy a combo pass from Ripley’s, you can save up to $50 per person and choose additional attractions, like Ripley’s Believe it or Not! or Ripley’s Aquarium of the Smokies.
This mini golf course is located at 1639 Parkway in Sevierville.

5. Professor Hacker’s Lost Treasure Golf
This outdoor mini golf destination offers two 18-hole courses themed around Professor Hacker, an explorer, archaeologist, anthropologist, paleontologist and part-time taxidermist.
Guests can search for ancient “gold and diamond mines” as they golf their way through the course. The family can take a mining train to the top of the mountain. From there, your expedition will visit a cave, waterfall, pirate ship, temple and a mock volcano to find the hidden treasure of gold and diamonds.
Pricing for adults is $15.50. Children 5-12 cost $13, while ages four and under are $5.
My personal favorite thing about Professor Hacker’s is knowing that it sits on top of what used to be Magic World. Some pieces of the old attraction have been integrated into the current mini golf course.
Pro tip: If you visit them online, you can usually get $1 off admission per person. To learn more, visit their website.
Professor Hacker’s is located at 3010 Parkway in Pigeon Forge.
4. Fantasy Golf
Fantasy Golf is an outdoor mini golf course with a magical theme that has two courses, each with 18 holes.
The courses feature dragons, castles, unicorns, caves and dinosaurs. On our last visit, the prices were only $7.50 for children and $10 for adults, but note that prices are subject to change.
They are located at 3263 Parkway in Pigeon Forge.
3. The Track
The Track in Pigeon Forge is a multi-level family fun center that features arcade games, bumper cars and of course, mini golf.
Golfers of all ages can enjoy jungle tunnels, waterfalls and tunnels throughout the putt putt course.
The Track is a great option if the family is in the mood for additional family activities like arcade games or go-karts.
It is a chain with a handful of locations across the Southeast. The only downside to The Track, in my opinion, is its point system.
Guests buy point cards to use as money. A round of mini golf is usually about 12 points.
The Track is located at 2575 Parkway in Pigeon Forge. To learn more, visit their website.
2. Toy Box Mini Golf
Toy Box Mini Golf holds the title of the world’s first toy-themed mini golf. The outdoor course has 18 holes set in a giant toy wonderland. And of course, there is a toy store.
The course offers snacks, combo packages, a laser maze and fun photo ops for kids of every age. Pricing for children is $11.99 at the time of this writing. Adults are $16.99.
Toy Box Mini Golf is located at 112 Dollywood Lane in Pigeon Forge. It comes from the same family as Crave Golf Club, which brings us to our final course …
1. Crave Golf Club
This 18,500-sq ft mini golf destination and adventure center has both an indoor family golf course as well as an outdoor rooftop course.
Both courses at Crave Golf Club have 19 holes, which are candy-themed and fully handicap accessible. This location also offers mini bowling, escape rooms, ice cream and (of course) a candy store.
At the time of this writing, one course for adults is $16.99 and $11.99 for children.
