My wife and I stayed in town for a night and were looking for things to do. We opted to give Buoy 18 a try. The course itself was decent. Pretty average for the nicer mini golf courses in terms of layout. Could use some...More

We loved all the flavors and types. The price is very good and the size compliments the price. It was very clean but the young people needed to work more and play around less.

Some putt putt courses can be a bit beaten up. This one is nicely maintained and good fun. The price of the course includes a gaming room as well. My 14 year old enjoys visiting when we come to Bay City. 6.00/game.
