Have you ever played mini golf? These are some of our favourite places to play Mini Golf in Brisbane, so if you’ve ever fancied swinging your putt on the green, give these a try!
What is mini golf?
Mini golf is a family-friendly game in which players navigate a number of twists, turns and obstacles along a miniaturised golf course. The aim of the game is to ‘putt’ your ball through the course and into each hole in the lowest number of attempts – hence the game’s other name: Putt Putt! You don’t need any skill to play – in fact, the less skill you have the more fun it can be – and all equipment is provided at the venue.
Putt, play and pancakes!
It’s no secret we love Victoria Park Golf Complex. Situated in the hills of Herston with views over the Brisbane city skyline, Victoria Park is a place you can easily putter away a few hours.
The Victoria Park Putt Putt course is 18 holes of immaculately landscaped mini golf challenges, but the fun doesn’t end there for little ones. There’s also a fantastic adventure playground to keep the kids entertained while the grown-ups enjoy the many culinary dining experiences on offer. Check out their bistro here.
Our hot tip is to head there on Saturday and Sunday mornings when the market carts are out – the hot Dutch pancakes are divine!
Victoria Park putt putt course is open from 6am until late at night, seven days a week. Prices start at $14 for children but they have lots of special offers and package prices on their website.

Not mini golf – SUPA golf!
Supa Golf is a game for big heads: big golf club heads that is! Everything in Supa Golf has been super-size to make the game easier for the whole family to enjoy. The balls are 2-3 times bigger than a regular golf ball but soft, neon bright, and lightweight. The golf clubs all have larger heads too, taking the frustration out of the game for younger children who are still developing their coordination.
The game is played over 9 holes (taking around an hour) set on a gently undulating course behind the beautiful Sirromet winery at Mount Cotton. Be sure to look out for the local wildlife – the wallabies at Sirromet love watching the Supa Golf entertainment! Supa Golf a fun and relaxing way to get everyone outdoors in the fresh air.
Supa Golf is open 10am-4pm, seven days a week. Prices start at $15 for children, with family passes and annual passes available. Find out more here.

Putt-putt with your foot-foot?
Crazy golf doesn’t get much crazier than this! Leave the putter at home because this game of mini golf has been upsized! In footgolf your feet are the golf clubs and you become the ‘mini’ in this Lilliputian putt putt twist.
Footgolf is played on a large green following rules similar to regular golf, but instead of a golf ball the game is played with a size 5 soccer ball. Players must kick the ball along the course, avoiding bunkers and sand traps along the way, to sink their ball in each hole in the least number of kicks. You can even play at night too as the course is floodlit!
Mt Gravatt Mini Golf is the first place in Brisbane to offer a purpose built footgolf course, so if your soccer-mad kids are looking for a new way to test their skills this could be their new favourite challenge.
Mt Gravatt Mini Golf also offers two miniature golf courses, including one under cover, and the option to host your party or event there for all ages. Find out more on their website.
Mini Golf at Mt Gravatt starts at $5 per child, while Footgolf starts at $8 per child. Family passes are available. The courses are open from 9am daily, seven days a week. Find out more about all the golfing and party options on their website.

Why play Mini Golf?
Aside from being heaps of fun and enjoyable for the whole family, mini golf improves coordination, spatial awareness, and concentration. It’s also a sneaky way of teaching kids about angles, gravity, curves and refraction (but we won’t tell if you won’t!).
