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!

Our hot tip is to head there on Saturday and Sunday mornings when the market carts are out – the hot Dutch pancakes are divine!

Putt-putt with your foot-foot?
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!

Not mini golf – SUPA golf – permanently closed 🙁

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!).
