Deadwood mini golf is located at the Comfort Inn and Suites Hotel in historic Deadwood, South Dakota. It is a small and easy 18-hole mini-golf course that’s fun for the whole family.
They are open May through November, weather permitting. The course is located outside, but to pay and get your equipment simply head to the lobby inside the hotel.
The course is in good shape and fairly simple. There are a couple water features and a few props located on the course, but nothing fancy. The building with the water wheel is by far their most impressive display.
They do have a cool ending for the course though where the number of strokes you receive on the 18th hole is determined by which hole your ball ends up going in. One hole even let you subtract points from your final score if I remember right.
Since the course is pretty simple they added these spinners on about half the holes to spice things up. Before making your first stroke you spin the wheel and have to do what it says. Using the opposite end of your putter to hit the ball, hitting the ball with only your hand or foot and attempting your first shot with your eyes closed are just some of the options that could pop up. We did this for every whole with a spinner and it really upped the fun of the game.
Now there are suppose to be 18 holes, but we only ended up with 17. I mean I don’t know how we could of missed one, but somehow we did. So either there really aren’t 18 holes or we just can’t follow signs (I’m gonna go with it was probably the latter)!
I also only lost by one stroke which never happens. I may be way more into mini-golf than Jamey, but he absolutely always wins. I love the game I’m just not very good at it.
After finishing the course you will exit through the arcade to return your equipment. Most of the arcade games looked like they were from the 90’s and half weren’t working. We love a good arcade so that was pretty disappointing.
So is it a fancy course…no, but I’ve been to much worse courses in my life.
Will you have fun?
It’s mini-golf isn’t it always fun?
