Congo River Golf & Exploration Co. is a child's dream play world. When I was a kid, I would have sold my sister for a chance to live in a place like this. How much more Robinson Crusoe can you get? Okay, probably a lot more, but you get my point. This place is too, TOO cool.
I know this because I have played probably a dozen rounds of mini golf here, AND fed the alligators, with all the various visiting relations of an age to appreciate such places. I have played some pretty crappy courses, but this one is a lot of fun. Over the top of the hill, across the rope and plank bridge, under the rock cliffs, through the caves, water traps here and there, it's neat.
Oh, and let's not forget wrecked airplanes left behind by explorers who were never seen again. Or the Congo Queen, taking on water while she drifts downstream, closer and closer to dear civilization!
But then, that is for another day. Happy Saturday!!
