Has anyone tried any of the miniature golf courses in the Triangle? We have seen some imaginitive courses in other states with fake rocks in a prehistoric theme and others with Rube Goldberg like contraptions.

We are trying to come up with a birthday outing for our soon to be 7 year old and a few friends. Do you think 7 year olds would be able to play?

Thanks for the help!
Alice

We went to one but the name is escaping me... ok, googled it, it is Putt-Putt on Tryon road. It was fun, kids liked it.

Seven year olds can certainly play putt-putt. Try adventure landing on Capital or Frankie's on TW alexander.

7 year olds will have a hoot at putt putt! My 7 year old started playing around age 5. He and my 4 year old always have to go play putt putt on Topsail Island when we go visit my folks. That's a GREAT birthday party idea!! Let us know if you find a good place to play. We might borrow your idea for the next party.

Thanks for the help. I will check out those courses. I really enjoyed minature golf as a kid the few times that we played. I'm hoping my Dad will want to come along. It would be great to have an activity that both a sedentary 80 year old and an energetic 7 year old would enjoy.

Frankie's is the best. But be ready to shell out some big $$.

Frankie's is the closest, between 70 and TW Alexander just before Brier Creek
