Not many people will be aware there is a US ProMiniGolf tour, which stages many of its events at the Hawaiian Rumble course. This course is landscaped around a 40 foot lava rock volcano with many of the holes positioned around it to give players a different view each time. The volcano is an active one in that flames erupt from the top every 20 minutes or so for a few seconds, making the ground tremble a little.
The U.S. ProMiniGolf Association sanctions the Masters National ProMiniGolf Championship held at Hawaiian Rumble. It is the official national championship forum where the top professional mini golfers in America play tournaments to decide who the new national pro minigolf champion is. There are six tournaments held at the Masters National events in Myrtle Beach including the overall national championship the Masters.
Also featured in the Masters series week is a ladies tournament, a junior championship for players 12 and under as well as a senior's event for players 50 and above. There is also a tournament for amateur mini golfers and the Masters National American Cup, which pits an American team against the best European players in a mini golf equivalent of the Ryder Cup. Myrtle Beach has been labeled in mini golf circles as the miniature golf capital of the world as there are many courses in the area, including Hawaiian Rumble's sister courses Hawaiian Village and Hawaiian Caverns.
Many visitors come to this mini golf course and are greeted by talking parrots, whilst staff presents each guest with Hawaiian leis. Reviews from past visitors to the course suggest the course if not the hardest to play in Myrtle Beach as it doesn't have many, if any hazards to negotiate. Whilst it is very well landscaped and maintained with a waterfall and palm tress, visitors should not expect to find it too challenging although this may be ideal for families with small children not wanting to get frustrated by finding the course too hard.
The two sister courses in Myrtle Beach also hold tournaments each year including the Hawaiian Village, which has plush gardens with tropical plants and flowers with two 18-hole courses set amongst it, as well as a game room and gift shop. There are many other mini golf courses in Myrtle Beach including Mt. Atlanticus, Dragon's Lair Fantasy Golf and Adventure Falls Golf, or for those who prefer the longer version of the game, the city also boasts over 100 golf courses. Other visitor attractions and entertainment in the area include the North Myrtle Beach Bowling Center or go carting at Myrtle Beach Grand Prix.
