A throwback to the 70s, with lots of cheesy construction, character and charm disguising some obvious shoddy and dated design.. The Scene Two courses, the Golf Nugget Course and the more difficult Prospector, both of them built on the roof of a restaurant and gift shop. Filled with cheesy turn-of-the-century mining equipment, including aqueducts, wooden bridges, mining cars and such. All of it feels like it might fall apart at any moment, which adds to the fun. Kitchy with a capital "K."
Above Par The place is dumpy, but carries much character, particularly the overwhelming amount of graffiti which covers every inch of the place and seems to have been written with scorecard pencils. Greens play fast, stretch long and contain numerous curves and slopes.
Below Par It's not the cleanest or best-maintained place, or the most modern.
Favorite Holes On the Prospector course: the holes in the caves and those that incorporate mining tools into the game, like Hole #14. On the Gold Nugget course, the first five pit you against some of the longest putt-putt greens around, particularly Hole #3.
