I travel up and down S. Kings Hwy. often, and I've had my eye on the old Cap'n Cain mini golf which has been
undergoing a massive facelift. (It has not opened yet, as work is still in progress.)
I have never played this course which closed in 2006.
Located at 702 S. Kings Hwy.

Here are the shots I took the other day:

If you're interested in the history of this course, here's a link to Wayne Aiken's site with bunches of old photos of this mini golf course. Note, this page is slow to load, but there are lots of pictures!

That's great! We spent a lot of time at Captain Cain's 15 years ago when our son was little. It was sad to see it deteriorate and then close. It was a great course at one time, so I'm happy to see the refurbishment! If we make it down to that area this year, we'll definitely play. Thanks for the pics Patrish.

I thought they took some of the course away when the built the bingo hall. Speaking of the bingo's beside it, did they close? Someone said they did.

Thanks Patrish for sharing. These pics make me want to be at the beach :cool: I couldn't help but notice in the third pic how green the grass is. Spring is just around the corner.

WOW, what a change compared to the old pictures. Going to put this on my list. Pretty soon I'll need 2 weeks in MB

I drove by Tuesday heading north and it definitely was noticeable, and the Arc/Boat stood out, I did not have time to turn around and check it out, thanks for posting :)

Yes, it's across the street from Villa Romano. It was so run down and deserted for years, I figured it would get bulldozed. But no....instead, it looks new again!

My friend, Tony did the work on this. He repainted Cap'n, built the airplane and helped to revamp the rest. He does amazing work!

I'd post photos of the work in progress, but I don't know how to post photos!

Hi, neenee, and welcome to our message board. You'll find information on adding a photo in item #4 on this page:
http://funbeaches.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=83&t=2773

Or you can always post the link to your images, which is often easier.

Does your friend Tony know the opening date?

Sorry I missed the previous question about the Bingo building. It is still there, but it is empty. The signs in the windows say it's available for lease.

Does the woman in the hijab on the Myrtle Manor show really run this place? I have worked for bad bosses like here before!

The "Captain" (in photo1) now has a sign in his hand that says "Play All Day $5."

Sorry...don't know anything about Myrtle Manor.
