Universal Orlando: Miniature golf courses set for Universal CityWalk

11 May 2011 by dewayne bevil-Orlando Sentinel

Universal Orlando has announced the addition of movie-themed miniature golf courses that will be incorporated into its Universal CityWalk entertainment district. Construction of  Hollywood Drive-In Golf — two, 18-hole courses – is slated to start this summer and be complete early next year.

The courses will be located below the first level of CityWalk, next to the AMC Cineplex, and visible from the walkway that connects CityWalk and the Universal Orlando parking garage.

The look of the courses will be inspired by 1950s horror and science-fiction movies. Universal says it has planned elaborate theming for its courses, which will be called “The Haunting of Ghostly Green” and “Invaders from Planet Putt,” which will take players through a flying saucer, into a graveyard, near a giant spider and into the basement of a haunted house.  It will be open day and night, Universal says.

“We created Hollywood Drive-In to be fun and different and something everyone can enjoy,” said Ric Florell, senior vice president and general manager of resort revenue operations. “We used creative theming and state-of-the-art technology to take the experience to the next level.”
