Ocean Isle vacationers who want to “practice their game” before hitting the big golf courses along the southern Carolina coastline, or who just want to enjoy a family-friendly outdoor excursion off the beach, can head to River Country Mini Golf. This fun 18-hole golf course offers a challenge for golfers of all ages, as well as a fun, jungle-themed environment where giraffes loom large, and elephants, zebras, and even hippos guard the well-manicured holes.

River Country Mini Golf has a wonderfully convenient location for visitors who are staying both inland and along the seashore, and is located on the edge of the bridge to the beach, on the corners of 3rdStreet and Causeway Drive. Though it’s located on a fairly busy Ocean Isle Beach intersection, the interior of the course is calm and relatively quiet, which makes it a pleasant escape in the heart of this coastal community. Small wooden bridges and manmade streams present a nice challenge and a nice aesthetic, and golfers of all abilities will be challenged by the variety of holes that bend, curve, and roam uphill or downhill. Fun for all ages, River Country Mini Golf gives vacationers a fun way to enjoy the local beach environment, off the sand.
