Visitor Tips and News About Golgotha Bible Mini Golf
As of September 18,2002,the grounds at Golgotha Fun Park are losing the battle against Mother Nature. Gauging from the advanced state of disrepair,very little "fun" has taken place in nigh on two years. Risking "Cave City Justice",as I like to call it,my brave girlfriend and I explored the grounds. The biblical figures are still recognizable,but this is little more than a testament to the quality of latex paint. Weeds have begun to overtake the green ways. Shadows fall everywhere. The adjacent go-kart track resembles a scarred and cracked dry river bed. For no apparent reason,a sun faded concrete alligator watches the non-happenings from Turn 3.
We spent the better part of an hour wandering around the Golgotha grounds, stunned by the fact that something this horrifying still existed.[T. Kuszynski, 09/25/2002]
It seems the Golgotha Fun Park in Cave City, KY, with the famous Bible-themed minature golf has closed. Phone is disconnected and the Cave City Visitors Bureau said no one has heard from them in a while.[Gary Warner, 08/07/2001]
A separate note from "Sean" on July 25 advises of a slightly different status: "We went to Golgotha Bible Mini Golf in Cave City, KY this past weekend and it was great but they are not open consistently. We talked to a few people near the place and one lady in particular who runs the Ice Cream/Fudge - mini golf - Haunted Maze right down the road from it said that the owners of the Bible Golf are trying to sell it. Apparently, they have another business in Cave City and this is just a side business now. There really are no set hours of operation, some weekends they are open and some they are not. When we arrived on Friday it was closed but luckily we went past it on Saturday afternoon and it was open and went in."
Golgotha> is a religious-themed miniature golf course. The front nine represent the Old Testament and the back nine represent the New Testament. Various concrete Jesii and other Biblical characters serve as obstacles. And when you finish your spiritual 18-hole quest, you can race go-carts. Or you can race go-carts first. There's nothing biblical about the go-carts, unfortunately.[Todd Merriman, 06/23/1998]
