We loved golfing at Golf Gardens; the course is challenging, tricky, and educational all at once. It's beautifully well maintained with pretty landscaping and nice signage; each hole has a diagram showing where you need to hit the ball - not that it helped us!...More

Years ago, this place was a dump. I had doubts visiting this place since my last visit to Avalon over 6 years ago. This golf center has totally been remodeled. The carpet is in excellent condition, the layout is challenging yet reasonable, one of the...More

It was really fun for us, two 50 somethings and a 16 year old. Landscaping is pretty and there are even educational snippets about the island for folks to read posted on the course. It was a great low key couple hours.

My friend and I had a blast playing this course on a cruise stopover. It wasn't crowded at all. I was surprised to see that it was an 18-hole course -- it didn't't look that big. The landscape is beautiful. The succulent plants and huge...More

The Golf Gardens Miniature Golf course in Avalon is one of the best mini golf courses I've been to. It is well maintained and well planned. Each hole is themed around island history, wildlife, geography, etc. - so not only do you have the fun...More

Hands down the best pure mini golf course I have ever been to. No windmills or hazard-like structures. This is a "shot-makers" course. If you can putt, you will get a good score and be challenged. Newly renovated with fresh turf and well maintained. Good...More

This is a very interesting course with lots of beautiful gardening around it. The price is a little steep, but that's what you get with Catalina. Gets backed up when the cruise ship is in town, try to avoid those times.
