Indoors or out, Perth has gone putting crazy for mini golf with courses popping up in bars and shopping centres all over the city. We’re teeing off to find the best places for mini golf in Perth.
With four huge themed locations spread across the city, the guys at Holey Moley know what they’re doing. Courses themed on films and shows like Jaws and The Simpsons and silly mid round games of pinball make this anything but, your normal 9 holes.
Three of the four locations are attached to an arcade too and all of them have a bar with fun themed cocktails. Not only that, but the accompanying shops sell golf visers and socks to get you totally in the zone! When we did date night at Karrinup, they had a money catcher wind tunnel.
Where: Westfield Carousel, FOMO Fremantle, Lake Street Northbridge or Karrinup Shopping Centre
Costs: From $17pp
And now for something completely different! It’s golf but everything is painted neon and black and there’s UV lights. You’re given 3D glasses to make the arty walls pop.
It’s an out-of-this world feeling expereince that’ll make you struggle to focus on your putt, but that’s all part of the fun. This entirely indoors experience is weather proof and as well as having 18 holes over 4 themed rooms, they also have a VR escape room.
Where: 1/1 Emplacement Cres, Hamilton Hill, 6163
Costs: $28 for an adult or $19.50 for a child 5-15 years.
Indoors with Dinosaurs and golf? Perthfect for the Dino Kid that every family has one of. 18 Holes and air conditioned, whilst the focus here is clearly on the young and young at heart, they also run adult events and have a cafe and dino gift shop.
Where: Hughie Edwards Drive, Merriwa, 6030
Wanneroo Botanic Gardens
What could be more theraputic than putt-putting your way around the scenic botanical gardens of Wanneroo with a choice of 36 beautifully maintained holes over 2 different courses.
Recently they’ve started opening at night to run Glow Golf, where you chase light up balls around the course.
Where: Drovers Place, Wanneroo, 6065
How Much: From $14.50 (Glow Golf from $21.50)
Wembley Golf Course
My curren favourite of the outdoors mini golf courses, and the best if you have little people that want to feel like big golfers. Right next to the club house and Golf shop at the Wembley Downs Golf Course is their pitch and putt course. It has some varying difficulty in holes and a podium at the end for that victorious instagram finish. The site also has a driving range for aggressively shooting balls into a field and a gorgeous bar and restaraunt. Oh and they have real golf, with the buggies and the sandpits and stuff, but we aren’t here to dicuss that today..
Where: 200 The Boulevard, Wembley Downs
Two nine hole courses themed on Circus and Speed? Now we have your attention.
Another leap into the world of UV light golf, so if you’re coming to this one, wear your whitest whites and make sure you open wide when you smile for insta. These guys also have a bar, a cafe and go karts.
Where: Hubert Street, Belmont, 6014
Speaking of Go karts, We went to Bibra Lake recently to race around the new Powerplay track.
