Steady yourself, you landlubber…you have to focus now. As the cannons belch fire and the timbers of the mighty Queen Anne’s Revenge shiver beneath your feet, you know you will only have this one shot. You have to make it count. Your opposition is breathing down your neck, determined to take from you that which you have fought so tirelessly to attain. And with that, you steady your good eye and take aim…at the putt that will give you the round, the victory, and miniature golf immortality. Heck, maybe even a free game!
Such is life on the high seas at Pirate’s Island Adventure Golf, Gulf Shores’ favorite venue for pirate-themed miniature golf and derring-do adventure.
Adorned with tropical foliage, mysterious cypress trees brandishing Spanish moss, and rushing waterfalls, this epic course is more than just 18 exciting holes of miniature golf. Brandishing your “cutlass” (your putter, that is) you will follow in the footsteps (or peg holes) of famous pirates like Captain Kidd and the dreaded Edward “Blackbeard” Teach, the scourge of the seas who used to roam the seas not too far from where you now stand. Your journey begins in a seaside village and a pirate harbor boasting a replica of Blackbeard’s own flagship the Queen Anne’s Revenge. It quickly ascends to the island’s mountainous interior where you ford rushing streams as you search for low scores and hidden treasure in mysterious caverns curtained off by raging waterfalls. Don’t miss out on the incredible views from the highest holes on the slopes of Corsair Mountain, but never forget you are here to win the booty, matey, so don’t take your eye (or eyes) off the prize!
This exciting course is a whole new take on miniature Gulf Shores golf, with detailed signage outlining the lives of some of history’s most colorful pirates and challenging holes that feature inventive obstacles you’ve never seen before.

Pirate’s Island Adventure Golf is located on Highway 59 in Gulf Shores by the bridge over the intercoastal waterway; adult rounds are a reasonable $11. You can add an extra round for $5, or play all day for just $7 more. So gather your crew and set a course to Pirate’s Island for the adventure of a lifetime!
