Along a quiet highway in Cochise County, Arizona sits a long-abandoned miniature golf course with a shadowy past. Uran Explorer took a brief detour from I-10 to check out an abandoned mini-golf course south of the town of Willcox. Remarkably free from vandalism, the props and obstacles have been left to the mercy of the harsh desert climate.
The decor seems to lack a coherent theme, though Native American elements are present in some of the props.
A creepy gnomish figurine keeps vigil over the overgrown course while dry desert grass pushes up through cracks in the pavement.
Faded green turf still covers small patches of the course.
The rusty mechanisms inside the props are rusty from years of exposure to the elements.
Even the creepy gnome has mechanized components.
Several of the course’s most notorious obstacles include the Rings of Death
and the Arrow of Despair
The only two structures on the property are “throne” room
and the boarded up trailer home that once served as the office.
Out back lies a discarded stove.
It is apparent this place has been abandoned for at least a decade, and probably much longer.
