Shipwrecked Miniature Golf, a 11,000-square-foot space at 621 Court St. that used to be an oil and heating company, recently turned into a mini-golf haven for Brooklynites.

The 18-hole course is owned by Ryan Powers, 42, and Chris Schneider, 41, who found the spot on Craigslist, according to The New York Times.

The course is frequented by couples on dates and moms throwing their kids’ birthday parties. As players advance through the course, they pass through rooms decorated with different themes, from under-the-sea, to the jungle, to famous Brooklyn sites like a massive mural of the Coney Island Boardwalk.

News for those who live, work and play in Brooklyn and beyond

A treasure-hunt story line is also part of the game, developed with comedian Harrison Greenbaum, and it plays from speakers throughout the course, the Times said. 

“You’re not just playing regular mini-golf and that’s it — it’s creative and interactive,” Natalie Kbariti, 21, told the Times.

The course holds a special place in her heart, because on her second visit to Shipwrecked, her boyfriend Eli got down on one knee at the 18th hole, the Times reported. A sign above read: “I finally got the balls to ask: Will you marry me?”
