Play mini-golf down the shore this Memorial Day weekend


Wildwood Crest:

Duffers Miniature Golf

5210 Pacific Ave.

This whimsical, nautical-themed course looks like it’d be right at home in a Disney film. After you play your 18 holes — $5 to $8 — treat yourself to homemade ice cream at Duffers family-run restaurant next door.

Cape May:

Cape May Miniature Golfand Cocomoe’s

315 Jackson St.

Only in Cape May would a gazebo-like structure painted the color of Pepto Bismol not stand out. This classic course, complete with waterfalls, is adjoined to Cocomoe’s Premium Ice Cream Parlor, so stop by for a post-golf treat. The course is $8 per person for 18 holes.

Seaside Heights:

Barnacle Bill’s Amusements

1968 Hwy 35

Set just a few sandy steps from the beach, this course has been in business for 50 years and is going strong again after Hurricane Sandy forced a major remodeling. Pay $8 for 18 holes and keep an eye out for Snooki and Jwow while you putt — this is the “Jersey Shore” town, after all.

Ocean City:

Tee-Time Golf

E. Seventh St. at the Boardwalk

It’s so old school, it doesn’t have a website. And according to one Yelp reviewer, “they’re still charging 1985 prices” — we’re talking 20 holes for $3 per person before 6 p.m. and $4 in the evenings. Beach views and a vintage vibe make this one a must.

Atlantic City:

Opry Glowgolf

The Pier Shops at Caesars

Leave it to AC to conjure up a psychedelic putt-putt experience. Prices per game are based on age group and range between $5 and $10 for 54 holes. There’s also a laser maze to challenge your contortion skills, and since everything is indoors it’s a perfect activity for a rainy day.


Kong on Morey’s Surfside Pier

25th St. and the Boardwalk, Wildwood

The ’70s boardwalk landmark is back: Kong, a “gorilla-themed amusement ride,” has returned, with the ape himself, clad in an “I love Wildwood” t-shirt and holding a classic tram car, perched 60 feet above the action on one of Morey’s three piers of rides and games. The seaside attraction also includes two beachfront water parks.
