We returned again this year to play because we enjoyed it the year before! It's a cute course and is great to play! If you get a hole in one and it's the mystery hole of the day than you receive a card for a free game! The staff is great and the facility is clean!

Lots of competition in the area, I'm glad we picked this place. The lady working was very friendly. FYI she said they take other competitors' coupons. We paid $8 for adults and $7 for our kids. The course was fun, we picked the one that goes up and around the falls. Kids had a blast, luckily it wasn't a super... More

Such a fun and friendly place! This is the best mini golf course I have ever been to. We were greeted and told what discounts they have: residents, veterans, over 65 and active military members all receive discounts. They also have ice cream and candy area which has a variety of flavors. The bathroom was immaculately clean. Every level player... More

There are 2 courses to play, we chose the Dunn Falls course which is supposed to be the harder one (or more stairs). The holes were par 2 and 3 but couldn't tell why. Nevertheless, it was a fun course and the place was in very good condition. They had just refurbished the entire Dunn Falls portion, didn't check the... More

My husband & I just played a round of Miniature Golf today. Totally enjoyed this area. Very clean and with an Ice Cream Parlor on the premises. All holes were kept up very well. Two different courses to choose from and/or both.

The best thing I can say about this mini-golf is that many of the holes are set back from 17 so that the roar of traffic is not as bad as at some others. A few holes are actually in a pretty, woodsy setting. The greens are not well-maintained, and leaves and pine cones were all over the place the... More

We are definitely not mini-golf connoisseurs, but we usually make time for a round whenever our grandson is in town. The large seaplane caught his attention, so we stopped in here to putt away a little time. Runaway Bay is really two 18-hole layouts. We all enjoyed the River Falls course more than Cockpit Country. River Falls includes a few... More

We try to hit one mini golf spot per day while vacationing in Myrtle Beach. Tried Runaway Bay. Disappointing. Looks great from road, but the back course was dark and uneventful. Kids 10 and 12 were underwhelmed. Last while was fantastic but no challenge otherwise to speak of. This is more misses than hits. You've been warned.

We always play Putt-Putt when we are on vacation and look for interesting places to play. Runaway Bay is just such a place! There were some challenging holes and the course is pretty well kept up. We would play there again!

Actually played this miniature golf course a couple of times as we were staying in a condo nearby. It's not the most exotic mini golf course but we did have a good time. Couldn't quite figure out why a few of the holes were rated par 3's when there were much more difficult par 2's but hey, it's miniature golf.... More
