Owner description: 18 hole course that has delighted visitors for 50 years! Internationally known as one of the world’s most challenging and beautiful miniature golf courses. No fancy electronics, just a good old fashioned challenging & fun layout. Great for the whole family. Landscaping was re-done a year ago featuring native and endemic plants from the Island. Open every day of the year, weather permitting. Open extended hours during summer months.

Didn't play this visit but noticed that the greens have all been changed. It also looks better kept!

“Nothin' Fancy, but Fun & Challenging”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

As a golfer, I loved the challenges of this "thinking man's" mini-golf course. Also, the people-watching is classic and the landscaping is top-notch. My 16-year old son could care less about any of that -- he just thought it was a blast!

If you are in Catalina go to the miniature Golf course, it is the best course i have ever done. We had so much fun and laughed very hard.

“Not for newbies”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

Came with my wife on our honeymoon. Mini golf was one of our things while we were dating so we had to check this place out. Our first impression was that this place was gorgeous. The holes are pretty tricky for the most part. This definitely isn't your average putt-putt mini golf course; the holes went from par 2 to even a par 6. The par of the entire course is 51, so it averages out to par 3 for each hole. They had obstacles that I've never seen at any other mini golf course. We both thought we were pretty decent at mini golf, but we scored terribly. The only room for improvement here was that some of the holes had turf that was wet, and one hole was completely submerged in water so that your ball goes into the drink when it goes in. Still, great fun for $9 a round.

“Fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2012

For my birthday Golf Gardens offered a free round. It was sooo much fun as my boyfriend is an avid golfer - scores in the 70 range...he had a fun time giving me tips of the trade. The course has many plants and facts to read about along the way.
