Cancun Lagoon Mayan Adventure Golf

Field review by the editors.

Myrtle Beach, South Carolina

The biggest mini-golf eye-popper in Myrtle Beach is the 50-foot-tall Mayan pyramid at Cancun Lagoon. It's topped with frescoes of feathered priests hoisting putters over their heads. Unnaturally blue water spills from terraces amidst palm trees and stone heads.

The structure is supposed to be the ancient Mayan Temple of Ek'-Wayeb-Chak (or Chak), the god of lightning and thunder. This hot-tempered god who can only be appeased by playing the ritual Mayan game -- of miniature golf!

Cursed tomb.

Twin courses weave in- and out-of-doors, and every half-hour a thunderstorm erupts inside the pyramid, a manifestation of the god's impatient wrath. Players have to walk past the prone skeleton of a warrior king whose score was too high, his bony hand still clutching a hot pink golf ball.
