Keeping passengers entertained is a top priority for cruise operators, according to Scott Lundmark, president of Adventure Golf & Sports (AGS). The firm is well positioned to help cruise brands achieve these goals by designing and installing a variety of facilities, including mini golf courses, golf hitting bays, shuffleboard and courts for pickleball, croquet, bean bag toss and other activities onboard their vessels. 

“AGS takes a thoughtful and holistic approach to the design of all its products,” says Lundmark. “We are careful to consider passenger demographics, the size and location of the designated space, traffic flow and wheelchair accessibility. We also want to maximise, where possible, the interactivity, playability and surrounding visuals of the mini golf course, all while delivering the project on time and within budget.” 

Mini golf courses are particularly popular with AGS’s clients. “Relative to our product specifications, mini golf courses are lightweight and durable with excellent drainage providing a long useful life asset for the cruise line,” explains Lundmark. “Very little maintenance and upkeep is required, therefore ensuring very low operating costs.”

One notable mini golf course AGS has created is on Royal Caribbean International’s Icon of the Seas, which debuted in January 2024. “The design covers a very large footprint and includes extreme elevation change and dramatic views both on and off the course,” says Lundmark. “The course is heavily themed with interactive moving elements and guests can play it 24/7, just like they can on all our other mini golf courses on cruise ships and riverboats.”
