Tee Time Golf
Ocean City, NJ
I believe Tee Time Golf opened in the 1960s. The statues which appear to be original are in great shape. Unfortunately, I was there during the off-season when I could only shoot through the chain link fencing. These painted signs are located nearby. For more, see these websites: 1, 2, and 3. [map]

Goofy Golf
Ocean City, NJ
Goofy Golf has some classic figures and an old-time feel. The ice cream cone in the first photo above is gone now. [map]

Goblin Golf [gone]
Ocean City, NJ
Goblin Golf had a horror theme with mummies, skeletons, rats, and movie monsters. It also had some mechanical obstacles with moving planks. These photos are from 2001. There is a restaurant on the site now.

Playland's Golden Galleon Pirate's Golf
Ocean City, NJ
Congo Falls Adventure Golf
Ocean City, NJ
Playland's Golden Galleon Pirate's Golf was previously known as Pirate Golf. There are two pirate-themed courses here which appear to be old and updated. The International Fiberglass Giant Pirate has been here for many years while the giant Octopus is a more recent addition. It was moved to the course's back entrance around 2014. [map]

Congo Falls Adventure Golf is a new mini golf place. It may have replaced an older mini golf. Congo Falls has three courses: the Congo Queen, Solomon's Mine, and the Lost City. This is a rocks and waterfalls type with some interesting details. For more, see this website. [map]

Gillian's Island Adventure Golf
(now OC Adventure Golf)
Ocean City, NJ
Playland's Seaport Village Golf is another new 19-hole course with a seaport theme and a replica of the shipwrecked "Sindia". The fisherman on the roof is gone. There is a giant shark with a mast in its mouth there now. [map]

Gillian's Island, now OC Adventure Golf, is a fairy recent Boardwalk addition. This is another rocks, caves and waterfalls type course. For more, see this website. [map]

Wacky Rooftop Golf
Seaside Heights, NJ
The Wacky Rooftop Golf course is on a rooftop above the Boardwalk. The bear, rabbit and Humpty Dumpty were produced by Ben Robinson of the Plycrete Mold Co. which marketed many of its statues to mini golf courses in the 1960s and 1970s. Some of the other statues here may have been produced by that company. [map]

Bill Burr's Flamingo Golf
Ship Bottom, NJ
Bill Burr's Flamingo Golf is a wonderful vintage courst which is fastidiously maintained. It was built in the late 1950s. They feature mini golf tournaments. [map]

Barnacle Bill's Amusements
Ortley Beach, NJ
Barnacle Bill's Amusements opened in 1963. The Paul Bunyan statue was produced by International Fiberglass. It is taken down at the end of the season and put in storage. In addition to the mini golf, there is also a snack bar and games arcade. These photos are from 2007. Although Barnacle Bill's was devastated by Hurricane Sandy in 2012, the whale and Paul Bunyan statue survived. The course was completely rebuilt. The whale was replaced with a new one in 2013.
