There are several mini-golf options in the Breezy Point area. To the south by Baxter, there is Pirates Cove Adventure Mini-Golf. Perhaps you’ve seen this chain of pirate-themed mini-golf courses in other major vacation destinations, like Orlando.
Another course worth mentioning is Bump-n-Putt. They have a number of attractions for kids and teens.
We chose Wildwedge, located just north of Pequot Lakes, next to the Scheer’s Lumberjack Show. Wildwedge is actually a small par 3 golf course and mini-golf course. We did not experience the golf course, but it looks like a great place for a beginner or a child to try golf for the first time.
A local travel paper that we picked up free in a gas station by Breezy Point had a coupon for unlimited Mini-Golf for $4 after 6pm. This was the deal we chose. (As an added note, the same travel paper had an unlimited coupon for the nine-hole par-three golf course for $6 after 6pm.)
Wildwedge was much more creatively designed than I would have imagined. While not as elaborate as Pirates Cove, it is much more elaborate than the ordinary $4 or $5 mini-golf course. There was a lot of creative use of hills, tubes, water, different lengths of carpet, and angles.
We played the 18-hole course twice, as we had unlimited access. While our scores improved the second time around, we were still challenged by the course on the second round and I’m sure would have been on a third and fourth round had we stayed long enough to play more. (There would have easily been enough time to play a third round if we wanted to.)
This is a brand new course for 2005, so the putting surfaces are in great condition. There were a number of people playing, but it certainly was not crowded, and we typically did not have to wait for the group ahead of us too often, nor did people have to wait for us very often.
This is a great attraction to combine with the Lumberjack show, or find a coupon, as we did, and play a few rounds for the price of one.
