I'll be checking out the mini-golf course on Sunday. Until then, just gotta wait and see if anyone else plays it and offers a report.

I was questioning how these enhancements would look in the long run...but after seeing this video..I'm very happy with what they've done! Can't wait to get back out to Orlando and ride it in it's new form this summer!

Got a chance to check out Hollywood Drive in Golf today at USF. I only did the Haunting of Ghostly Greens course and took lots of pictures.

Enjoy!

And if you decided to play another round at the end, you can add it here. It is the same price as pre-paying for 36 holes.

Are there triggered sounds or effects at all?

They should really charge more for night, since it looks 1000 times better then.

Yes there are TONS of sound effects. In the pet cemetery scene, each tombstone has a different pet noise (dog, cat). And the BGM (background music) is an awesome loop of fun songs such as "Thriller," "Little Shop of Horrors," "Werewolves of London" etc.

When I grow up, I want to breed donkeys!

This looks awesome. I really hope we're able to make it out this weekend for a round or 2. I know my score will be atrocious but it still looks really fun! Thanks for the update!

This seems like a very tacky course...but one of the best I've seen!

That's a given. ;)

This does look like one hell of a mini golf course, though. Can't wait to play on it!
