The Fish Hole on Lakewood Ranch Main Street

Fish Hole Lakewood RanchOne of the great things about Lakewood Ranch is that it so family oriented. While Lakewood Ranch Main Street may be known for its shopping and dining it is also a lot fun for the whole family. One place that is sure to get you family “hooked” on Lakewood Ranch is the Fish Hole, a mini golf course located on Main Street.

Don’t worry about the heat… The Fish Hole is a perfect place to play and stay cool as it was designed with misters around the edges to keep the players refreshed and plenty of shady areas around the 18-hole course to take cover including overhangs that resemble covered bridges. As you golf you can relax in a setting that is well kept and surrounded by 50 different species of plants, a moving water wheel and a 3,000 gallon pond filled with brightly colored Koi fish. The kids can get fish food from the feeders to keep themselves busy between holes. But no fishing at the Fish Hole only mini golf!Fish Hole Lakewood Ranch

The hole in one shots are attainable at the Fish Hole ─ even the little ones can do it, but each hole does have its own unique challenges that you will love to “tackle.”  —The pun was intended.

At the end of your mini golf experience drop your ball into a drop box for a random chance to win another free round!

Check out their website for a variety of birthday packages and also a $1.00 off coupon to print out or show on your phone.
