We visited in fall season so everything is open very weird hours if open at all. They were open, stated was very friendly and helpful. Facility was in good condition. If you are looking for a place, also gokarts and kid rides, I would recommend.

It's true. Most of the mini golf holes aren't groundbreaking but they're in good condition and genuinely fun. The best part of our stop here on a slow day was taking our 3 year old on the go cart track. When the young man working the track realized the one car going around by itself wasn't all that fun, he... More

Two couples and we had fun, grab a drink to take with you on your 18 hole game! Course was fun, hard at times and very whimsical as a treasure island

My husband and I took our two little boys to golf at Professor Hackers and we all had a great time! I think this place is much nicer than many of the goofy mini golf places I have been to. It's well maintained and the short train ride to the first hole was SO exciting for the kids. Plus under... More

We took our entire family which includes 4 grandchildren ages from 3 to 13 years old and 6 adults. Everyone had a Fantastic time and was very entertained. The bumper boats were great and the kids enjoyed them and the go carts the most. The miniature golf course kept the whole family entertained for the rest of the evening. The... More

We enjoyed the course- it was kinda expensive- 9.50 per person. We enjoyed a better place in Williamsburg for 6.50$. BUT we would go again.

We went with my daughter, brother-in-law, nephew, nephew's friend, and my niece. Everyone had fun. The rides were fun for the little ones to ride while the teenagers rode go karts.

My family goes to Emerald Isle every year, and every year we play mini-golf at Professor Hackett's. It's always crowded during the summer, so plan on being patient. The course is okay, nicely landscaped but no more imaginative than mini-golf courses anywhere else. The go-kart racing is a ripoff and the gasoline fumes give you a headache... not recommended.
