Lake Norman (LKN) Miniature Golf is a small family owned business. Locally owned and operated, designed and built out of the owners vision that for as popular as miniature golf is 4 hours away from here at the many different "beach" locations, LKN needed a place for the locals to call their very own local mini golf destination. LKN Miniature Golf is professionally designed and built on over an acre of land. Each hole is unique and fun for ALL ages and skill levels. A well stocked snack bar featuring over 70 flavors and combinations of Southern Snow Shave Ice, Milkshakes - cones - and Sundaes made with locally churned Mooresville's very own Deluxe Brand and Front Porch Ice cream, Nathan's Hot Dogs, Cotton Candy, Hot Pretzels, and Coca Cola products. There is a furnished patio area for customers to enjoy their snacks & beverages purchased from LKN Miniature Golf (No carry-ins allowed). LKN Mini Golf is open seasonally; come out and enjoy an exciting round of mini golf anytime from mid February (weather permitting) through Thanksgiving Weekend. Make sure to call or check our web site for seasonal operating hours and random closings in the fall. We look forward to your visit!!!!


Kip & Kari Zent, Owners

Great afternoon activity.

This is a great mini-golf experience. Friendly staff and very cool layout. Try it out at night as well when the weather cools down.

This is a great place to take middle school aged kids, as well as high school aged. The layout is nice and has a number of different features. The greens were redone after only a few years. The entire faculty is always clean. The staff is friendly and engaging. They are interested you are there and explain how the course... More

We recently visited the mini golf location with our seven year old. It was 7 dollars for each of us, which I thought was reasonable. The course was nice and had a good variety of holes. I did get a hole in one, but not the one for a free game! We had a great time, even though it was... More

My family ranging from 5-71 years played this course yesterday and had a blast. The course is beautiful. Even though I've read several posts about needing some maintenence, I didn't notice anything. They have some fun extra ways to earn free or discounted games too. The only thing I'll warn you about is there are steps throughout the course so... More

We have been several times in the past and paid for our 2 young kids only while my wife and I walked. I took my son recently and asked to pay for 1 and was told that anyone walking onto the course had to pay. There was literally no one on the course since it was so hot, so instead... More

Well kept and maintained. Water, caves, bridges, and the final hole is just too funny! My granddaughter loved it and I have gone with adults as well, and we all had fun. Lots of laughs, and usually there is a "secret hole" that if you get a hole in one you get a free round.

Our family (six adults) visited Lake Norman Miniature Golf on a Saturday morning this month. When we first arrived, there were very few people at the course, but several groups/families arrived after we did. We had fun and lots of laughs miniature golfing, but I did notice that the course itself could have been improved a bit by making some... More

Thank you for your business, the well thought out, and considerate review. I sincerely apologize that our fans were not turned on for you. That was an inappropriate response from my staff and the morning protocol is to always plug the fans in, the mist however does get postponed until 11am or later. We are 6 years old now and... More

I have been coming here ever since it opened years ago. It has always been extremely nice and a common place for friends to hangout and for families to gather to have some fun.
