The company has added new Florida locations recently in Orlando, Sarasota and Delray Beach.

Unlike the windmills and alligator jaws of old-fashioned putt-putt courses, each location has two 18-hole mini golf courses designed by Woods and his TGR Design team. There are Augusta-like holes created in miniature that incorporate fairways, bunkers and rough as seen on traditional golf courses.
