  1. The history under Jockey’s ridge. There was a large hotel there. It was my great,great grand parents. The Sawyers! There are 2 people living that know the truth under it. It was not burned down. There was a storm that created it. The sound and the ocean met and formed the sand dune. When Jerry was a kid his friends found a opening like a tunnel and would go inside it and they would walk around in it and play. The property was not ever sold. The state claimed owner ship over it. To this day boards from the huge hotel will appear from it. It’s a berried treasure. My grandmother had a picture of it. But when she died it lost in the paper work. If you would like to contact us about it my email is galenorton3@gmail.com! Happy hunting for that great treasure. It is still there!! Best regards, Jerry and Gale Sawyer

Meekins. She recently passed away, Feb. 23, 2017 just shy of her 96th birthday. All of her grandchildren enjoyed the miniature golf for many years.

      Ms. O’Brien I am so sorry to hear about your grandmother but glad to hear she lived a long life. I am the new superintendent at Jockey’s Ridge and am trying to learn as much about the park’s interesting history as possible. I remember well the putt-putt golf course as my sisters and I had a wonderful opportunity to play on it in the 70’s.
