Welcome to Cohutta Cove Mini Golf & Gem Mining

where the mining rocks & the balls roll :)

Hey all you fellow putt putters, gem miners & outdoor enthusiasts!

We (Rich & Helen) are the proud new owners of this fun place that has been around since 2012. Sporting an adventurous 18 hole mini golf course with a covered 50+ foot gem mining sluice that "rocks"!! It's a great place where families, friends, pets & all walks of life come to play & have a great time in the great outdoors! We have lots of fun around here & are open year-round 7 days a week!

A little bit about us...


We have vacationed up here in Blue Ridge since July 2010 with our family & always rented a beautiful cabin that had to have an outdoor fire pit! The fire pit is where our family gathered every night!


Through the years we met lots of locals & small business owners in the tri-state was cool making friends along the way! We shopped til we dropped, filled our bellies at great restaurants, bars & grills, went horseback riding & spent days boating on Lake Blue Ridge! Enjoyed the parks, rivers, drove the roads less traveled, rode the train to McCaysville & Copperhill, Tennessee...where our daughter always seemed to find some of the little secret hidden doors in the shops that had a gift inside! Got our exercise hiking to several waterfalls, the swinging bridge & parts of the Appalachian Trail! Spiked our taste buds at the distilleries, zip lined, tubed, kayaked & took on the rapids with our favorite river guide, David! We fished in the rivers...yes we just had to wet some lines & caught brookies & brown trout :) Gem mined & played just about every mini golf course in the tri-state area & panned for gold in Dahlonega! However, the Cohutta Cove course in Blue Ridge was our favorite & the plan was set into motion to own it someday!

Fast forward to January 2023 when our vision became a reality when we moved from Clearwater, Florida & bought this awesome place! We are a family owned & operated business & are proud to be a part of this beautiful and welcoming mountain community that radiates the southern charm we fell in love with years ago...this is our new & forever home!

What did we do in Clearwater, Florida?

We owned & operated "Above Average Charters"...a successful offshore 2-boat fishing charter business in Clearwater Beach, Florida from 2001-2022. "Captain" Rich aka "Rocket" fished the Gulf of Mexico since July 1990 where he started out as a mate, got his sea time in & earned his Captain's License in 1998. He's caught every fish out there except a Great White Shark in his 32 years of charter fishing! Helen booked the trips, worked the website & social media & Rich took thousands of people from all around the world trolling, bottom fishing & shark fishing! Rich was "hooking people up for over 32 years!"

We were family owned & operated then too!

Thank you for reading this tidbit, see y'all soon! Lookin' forward to meeting y'all :)
