Inspired by the success of their Koi Pond Miniature Golf Course, the new Mountain Miniature Golf Course celebrates the natural beauty of the surrounding Smoky Mountains with rustic design and scenic views of historic Saunooke Village. In addition to fun and challenging games of golf, the Mountain Miniature Golf Course also provides relief from the summer heat, staying a full 10 degrees cooler in the shade of the trees.
