Miniature Golf & More for Cruise Ships, Riverboats and Expedition Ships

Many amenities on cruise ships and riverboats are aimed at specific age groups, like splash pads for young children and hot stone massages for adults. But miniature golf courses are becoming increasingly popular because they’re fun for virtually all ages and abilities.

At Adventure Golf & Sports, our modular mini golf and game court products are the perfect solution for passenger recreation and activities on cruise ships and riverboats. The patented interlocking panels are durable, lightweight, and offer excellent drainage. They’re secured by our proprietary anchoring system, ensuring product safety on your deck while also allowing accessibility for deck inspections and service.

We can build almost any mini golf course you can imagine to perfectly fit your space and budget. We also provide golf hitting bays and game court systems for cruise ships and riverboats. And we’re proud to have been selected by Bergo Flooring to install their high performance marine flooring on ships.

MINIATURE GOLF DESIGN PHILOSOPHY

Our courses designed in CAD are not cookie cutter. To us, course design is:

  • A collaborative process to create a look/feel/theme to fit your deck space and budget.
  • Choice, Chance and Challenge.
  • ADA/Wheelchair accessible.
  • Provide separate anchor and lighting plan along with weight and dimensions.

For themed courses, whether it is creating more interactive golf holes, a special effect or coming up with a unique way to have a ball do something unexpected, we have the ideas and experience to make it happen.

CHOICE
Providing several alternative routes to a golf hole. Over and under, around or through, in the water or down a fairway.

CHANCE
The chance of obtaining a hole-in-one on any golf hole and the chance that something unusual might happen to direct the ball to a hazard or area where the player can use another putt.

CHALLENGE
The concept that the challenge must be enjoyable for adults and children. If there is too much challenge, the course will fail.

  • “I hear that the putting green looks good. I am glad that installation went smoothly. I am looking forward to hearing about how passengers receive it.”

    American Cruise Line
  • “I am delighted that the first contact will now bear fruit for us both. I really like your system and think it will be much better for our vessels – much easier to maintain in the long run.

    Good luck on this project. I think that may be the ship that puts us so far ahead of the competition . . . . I am looking forward to it.”
