Old Pro Golf
Old Pro Golf is a family-owned and operated business founded in 1965 by Herbert J. and Aileen "Deany" Schoellkopf. Prior to owning Old Pro Golf, they were designing, building and operating miniature golf courses, driving ranges, and other amusement facilities up and down the East Coast. Herb became hooked on the game of golf and saw its potential as a business while helping a fellow coach at Guilford College build a miniature golf course to raise funds to buy school uniforms. Since then he has designed and built well over 150 miniature golf courses during his 50+ year career. John Margolies, author and photographer of the book Miniature Golf, credits Herb with being one of the originators of the "Philadelphia School of Miniature Golf design."
Over the years Old Pro has grown through hard work, "imagineering," and employee dedication and cooperation. As we continue to grow and create, Old Pro Golf is as full of potential as it was the day Herb built his first miniature golf course out of dirt and 1Ã—4 lumber. So when you're in Ocean City, Maryland don't forget to stop by one of four wonderful locations; 23rd street, 28th street, 68th street, or 136th street on Coastal Highway.
We love Old Pro Golf. We go every time we're in Ocean City. They have four locations with 2 indoor courses and 4 outdoor courses. That way we can enjoy them year round. Usually just our kids play and they love it. It's a good deal to get the all day pass if you have the time, one flat fee and you can play at all 6 courses for the whole day. We do that a lot. I highly recommend it here.
Our family loves the indoor Old Pro Golf on 68th street. The underwater theme is really neat. It has a competitive but not frustrating course which is fun for kids and adults. The arcade games are fun and have a fairly good selection of prizes. They are not stingy on the tickets they pay out. The place is clean. The staff is friendly. We can't say enough good things about it.
Old Pro Golf has multiple locations spread throughout Ocean City. The one we went to had the dinosaurs on the outside and we played both the inside and the outside. I personally liked the inside course somewhat better as it was less formulaic and had some holes that were fun for the kids. The kids got more holes in one on the inside course. The family overall voted that the outside course was better. They apparently liked the greater number of straight puts to the hole and the varied scenery such as the dinosaur with red water coming out of it's mouth. One bonus here, if it rains they DO have free ponchos so you can keep playing. If you go, pay extra so you can do both courses or even a little more so you can go between the courses on the same day. We found it worth the money.
Really nice place. You can (and I suggest you do) get the unlimited golf for like $14-$15 per person and it is good all day. We played a few rounds inside and outside left and went to the beach ate and came back. It was a little busy in the evening but we still played another round inside and outside. It ended up averaging out to be cheaper than playing at a place near us and the themes are neater. The employees were all really friendly too.
Great fun here! Indoor golf is great place to go on a cold day. A few things need to be updated like the numbers on the holes. Some were missing and making it hard to know where to go.
