2010 Orlando Series
During our longer than planned stay in Orlando, FL, we played a total of twenty one 18-hole rounds on twenty one 18-hole courses, including a day out on the 12th of April in which we played 6 courses.
5/4/10- Pirates Island West Vine Street, Kissimmee. 36 holes.
Pirate themed adventure golf course, pretty good in our opinion. It was the founder of Pirate’s Island who coined the expression “adventure golf” in the 1980s. (Tim will no doubt prove this wrong)
Scores- Capt. Kidd’s adventure.
par 42
adam 47
tony 42- 1 ace
kate(mum) 44- 2 aces
leyla (cousin) 71
Blackbeard’s challenge.
par 52
adam 47
tony 49
kate(mum) 48- 1 ace
leyla (cousin) 74- 1 ace

7/4/10- Pirate’s Cove Orlando. 36 holes.
Pirate themed adventure golf, owned by Pirate’s Island. We think that Cove is their easier version of Island. Good course.
Scores- Captain’s adventure.
par 40
adam 36- 3 aces
tony 35- 3 aces
Blackbeard’s challenge.
par 43
adam 47- 1 ace
tony 38- 4 aces

8/4/10- Congo River Golf, 6312 International Drive. 36 holes.
Explorer themed adventure golf, featuring lakes, live alligators, crashed plane, jeep. Just beneath Storm and Der Stuka rides at Wet n Wild water park. Ok course but main problem being the very uneven side walls. Rebound shots impossible.
Scores- Stanley course.
par 44
adam 49- 1 ace
tony 44- 1 ace
kate(mum) 48- 1 ace
Livingstone course.
par 43
adam 46- 1 ace
tony 52
kate(mum) 43

9/4/2010- Congo River Golf 5901 International Drive. 18 holes.
Very similar to previous Congo River Golf.
Scores.
par 43
adam 50
tony 49
kate(mum) 53- 1 ace

12/4/10- Winter summerland. 36 holes.
Disney’s miniature golf course. No par 2s, every hole is par 4,3 or 1. Very annoying, Disney-ish Christmas theme, obstacles included putting over Santa’s belly etc. Christmas music playing non-stop. Each hole has a silly name and a silly rhyme about it. One name was “Driving a hard toboggan”. Tony’s favourite rhyme was... “To get your ball to the hole, you need a little “elf control.””
Scores- Snow course.
par 56
adam 43- 3 aces
tony 42- 4 aces
Sand course.
par 56
adam 38- 2 aces
tony 40- 2 aces

12/4/10- Fantasia Gardens. 36 holes.
Two contrasting Disney courses. The gardens course is similar to winter summerland in style but with a musical theme. The (fairly incredible) fairways course is the longest course in the world with holes ranging from 60ft-103ft in length. Every hole is a miniature version of a golf hole with fairways, rough, bunkers, dog legs and no side walls to prevent the ball leaving the lane. There are also huge undulations in the “fairways”.
Scores- gardens course.
par 53
adam 44- 4 aces
tony 48- 1 ace
Fairways course.
par 61
adam 69
tony 71

12/4/10
Pirate’s Island, Highway 192 Kissimmee. 36 holes.
Very similar to the other pirate courses but probably the best overall.
Scores- captain’s adventure.
par 48
adam 45- 1 ace
tony 46
Blackbeard’s challenge.
par 48
adam 47- 1 ace
tony 44- 1 ace

14/4/10
Pirate’s Cove Kissimmee. 36 holes.
More of the same but good nonetheless.
Scores- captain’s adventure.
par 36
adam 44
tony 40
kate(mum) 45- 1 ace
Blackbeard’s challenge.
par 43
adam 45- 1 ace
tony 45- 1 ace
kate(mum) 46

15/4/10- Jungle Golf Celebration. 36 holes.
Owned by Pirate’s Island, very similar course but with an African Jungle theme, good African music.
Scores- Bwindi adventure.
par 44
adam 40- 2 aces
tony 39- 2 aces
kate(mum) 45- 1 ace
Serengeti adventure.
par 46
adam 47- 1 ace
tony 42
kate(mum) 44- 1 ace

15/4/10- Bonanza Adventure Golf. 36 holes.
A long course with quite a lot of steep downhill holes and useless side walls. Very cheap and cheerful feel. Probably the worst course that we played.
Scores- Gold Nugget course.
par 40
adam 47- 1 ace
tony 43
kate(mum) 47- 1 ace
Prospector course.
par 41
adam 45
tony 41- 1 ace
kate(mum) 54

19/4/10- Congo River Golf Kissimmee. 36 holes.
Similar to the other Congo River courses but probably slightly better.

par 40
adam 43
tony 47
kate(mum) 48- 1 ace
Livingstone course.
par 46
adam 46
tony 42

It's good to see you two are still very evenly matched even across that amount of rounds.

And congratulations Tony - Already up to 17th in the rankings.

Although Adam still leads on titles won... so far...
