Pigeon Forge’s newest mini golf destination is perfect for anyone with a sweet tooth! Crave Golf Club, which just opened this October, is home to two amazing Candy Land themed putt-putt courses that your family is sure to love. This one-of-a-kind attraction also features an epic candy store, a milkshake bar, and even more fun features. To help you make the most of your next vacation, Visit My Smokies has put together a guide to everything you need to know about visiting Crave Golf Club in Pigeon Forge.
Outdoor and Indoor Courses
With both an outdoor and an indoor course, Crave Golf Club is a great place to visit no matter what the weather is like. The outdoor course is located on the roof of the building and on an adjacent hill. Both courses feature special bonus holes, which brings the total number of holes at Crave to 38!
The courses are themed around six different Candy Land-esque locations: Bubblegum Garden, Jelly Bean Jungle, Rock Candy Mountain, Sugar Safari, Ice Cream Canyon, and Cocoa Cliffs. During your visit, you will see all sorts of imaginative decorations, including towering cupcake pillars, chewing gum trees, gingerbread houses, giant gummy bears, a juice box fountain, talking gumball characters, and even more whimsical designs.
For a behind the scenes look at the indoor course, check out this video from local news station WVLT:
Every hole at Crave Golf Club in Pigeon Forge has a Spin Zone that adds a unique element of chance to the game. Before taking their turn, players spin a wheel that has a number of challenges and directions printed on it. A few examples include:
- “Spin around 5 times before putting.”
- “Take one free putt this hole.”
- “Putt on one foot.”
- “Take two steps forward, then putt”.
The spinner also features candy and ice cream icons. If your group gets either 19 ice cream cones or 19 candies, you will win a prize! Possible rewards include a free waffle cone upgrade or a free round of golf for someone in your party. Crave’s scorecards make it easy to keep track of how many icons your group has spun.
Candy Store and Milkshake Bar
No visit to Crave Golf Club is complete without a stop at their spectacular candy store! Featuring 150 different types of sweets, this awesome shop is lined with massive candy dispensers and special novelty items. Guests will find cereal box-sized packages of Nerds and Sour Patch Kids, army man gummies, frog gummies, and just about any candy you can imagine. The sweet shop also features a Pucker Powder Candy Art station, where kids can create their own delicious dessert.
Steps away from the candy store is Crave’s much-buzzed-about milkshake bar. The parlor has six signature shakes that are inspired by locations on the putt-putt course, like Jelly Bean Jungle and Cocoa Cliffs. Other ice cream/milkshake flavors available at the bar include:
- Peanut Butter Moose Tracks
- Cookies N’ Cream
- Bear Claw
- Birthday Cake
- French Vanilla
- Super Rainbow
- Caramel Caribou
- Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough
- Praline Pecan
- Blueberry Waffle Cone
Guests will be able to take their sweets onto the course with them, because the spinners at each hole double as tables where you can put your food down while you putt.
