Universal Orlando Resort has officially opened Central Florida’s newest miniature golf courses. Hollywood Drive-In Golf features two 18-hole courses based on classic drive-in era horror and sci-fi movies.
Universal’s classic monsters – including Dracula, Wolfman, Frankenstein’s Monster and the Bride of Frankenstein – putted their way through a creepy cemetery on “The Haunting of Ghostly Greens” course. On the opposite side, Men In Black agents and Frank the Pug played “Invaders from Planet Putt” – a course themed after the “little green men” science fiction films of the 1950s.
Although both courses look great all day, at night they really look their best with neon lighting around the greens and special lighting all around. And of course, a spooky course is always a little spookier at night.
Designed by Universal’s Creative team in partnership with Adventure Golf Design and Development, Hollywood Drive-In Golf is open daily from 8 a.m. to 2 a.m. Admission rates to play one course are $13.99 plus tax for adults and $11.99 plus tax for children (ages 3 to 9). Universal Passholders are offered a discount. They also offer a special price for both courses. Keep in mind that only those who have paid are allowed to go on the courses. Parking charges for the CityWalk garage may also apply.
