Castaway Cove Miniature Golf
Situated on Point Pleasant Beach, the Castaway Cove mini golf course is based around the theme of a shipwreck, and it takes players through fun locales like caves and waterfalls as they play their round.

Like they say, come for the mini golf, stay for the millions of other things to do. That’s what they say, right?

Point Pleasant’s other mini golf offering, Lighthouse Point is a little farther away from the action, which is good if you’re looking get away from the noise and really work on your putt putt game. There are two courses available here, one being for beginners and one meant for more advanced players, although neither should pose too much of a challenge. Unlike Castaway Cove, you won’t find much in the way of trick shots or set pieces. Here, it’s all about the skill of the game.
Manchester Family Golf Center

Hope you’re not scared of heights!
