Jungle Lake Golf, 200 Offshore Drive (Murrells Inlet): March 2017   2 comments

Posted at 11:11 pm in closing









Well, another little bit of my childhood gone. After the tear-down of the minature golf place in Litchfield (probably sometime around 1970) this was the next Southernmost minature golf course on the strand, and where we played most often when I was a teen. Somehow at the time, I thought the theme was pre-historic instead of "jungle" and I considered the natives at the right-front part of the course to be cavemen (or women -- there was one statue of a woman who seemed to alternate between topless and fur bikini depending on how recently she had been painted..).

Looking at the size of the lot now that it has been cleared and leveled, it's amazing that a full 18 hole course was there, along with ponds, statues, switchbacks, hills and trees. It's possible I may have some shots of the place in operation that will turn up some day, but in the meantime, you can check out the Facebook Page.

  1. I think this was also our "go to" place for playing miniature golf when we were at the beach. Last time we played there was over 20 years ago.

    Didn't they share a parking lot with an ice cream stand and Chinese restaurant? Was all of that torn down?

  2. No, the gorilla picture is of the adjacent complex and all that stuff is still there (though I think the restaurant has changed several times over a 20 year period).
