Winter Summerland is a very special and unique miniature golf course because Santa Claus, himself, designed it! The story goes that late one Christmas Eve, as Santa was flying back to the North Pole, he discovered snow in Florida. After surveying the strange sight, he decided to build a vacation destination for his off-duty elves, a Winter Summerland.
Seeing that the only thing Winter Summerland lacked was a golf course, Santa and his elves divided into 2 camps, one that enjoyed the warm Florida sun and another that preferred the snow and cold of the North Pole. The elves then built 2 distinctly different 18-hole golf experiences: a sand course named “Summer” and a snow course named “Winter.”
The Summer Course
Guests can enjoy fun in the sun at the Summer Course amid surfboards, sandcastles and ornaments hanging from palm trees. Deck the balls as you putt around peppermint-striped inner tubes, snapping clamshells and a melting snowman. But try not to wake sleeping Santa buried in the sand!
The Winter Course
Here you can putt your way to the North Hole on the Winter Course, but keep your eye out for Squirty the Snowman! This “jolly, happy soul” sprays water at golfers when golf balls pass beneath him. Guests will enjoy merry obstacles including giant peppermints, hockey sticks and the drawbridge of a fantastical, melting castle. The courses combine for the last holes, and after sinking the last putt on Hole 18, golfers receive a special message from Santa Claus, courtesy of the WinterNet!
This is a wonderful addition to the Fantasia Gardens and Fairways Miniature Golf courses that are currently open to guests
