    My Dad and I have been there a few times to play their Par 3 course. I've played there numerous times with friends and worked there the summer I lived in Destin. It has a relaxed, friendly atmosphere with a miniature golf course that your whole family will enjoy. One of the best features of the Golf Garden is that you can play at night under the lights. It's great entertainment for you and your children.
