Everybody loves to play miniature golf. In Gatlinburg, one of the most popular mini golf locations is Davy Crockett Miniature Golf. Located right off the parkway, there is plenty of parking, free parking, and you are out of the press of downtown Gatlinburg. Add to this that it is one of the most beautifully made and creative mini-golf locations in Gatlinburg and you are in for quite a treat.
Davy Crockett Mini Golf attempts to tell the story of legendary hero of the Tennessee mountains with the help of an all-critter cast. From Davy, in this case a fun loving raccoon to the rest of his mountain home friends, you will be amused and your children will be delighted by the antics that these animals get up to. From shooting cannons to creating water sluices, the animals have been placed around the golf course to add obstacles and to create an atmosphere of fun and adventure around the course, or in this case, two courses.
Both of the courses (36 hole sin all) are challenging and fun. The obstacles range from water hazards to hills, from wavy bumps meant to make it hard to putt to holes that are not visible from where you start. Ripleys (yes, the same folks that run the Aquarium) have made this one of the neatest golf courses you will ever play on. And, unlike many other attractions and activities in Gatlinburg, you don’t have to park and walk for a long time to get there. There is a parking lot for Davy Crockett Mini Golf guests right next door to the golf course itself, so you aren’t paying extra to park but, it is not far down the street from some of the hotels and motels so you are always welcome to walk to Davy Crockett and enjoy the nice stretch of the legs on your way to play with the family.
Next trip you take to Gatlinburg, make sure that the Davy Crockett Mini Golf is part of your itinerary. Get the family together and hang out in the great outdoors. Spend some time challenging the kids. Play both courses and take in the playful antics of the critters that tell a story about Davy Crockett as you make your way around the courses. See who can win the game and then, when you come back year after year, play again and again, wait for that day when your kids finally win and then you can reflect on that first game you played with the Davy Crockett raccoon watching from the sign.
