This is not your typical miniature golf course. There are no clown's mouths or windmills to shoot through. This 18 hole putting green style course is set within a lush Hawaiian botanical garden representing the different eras of Hawaii's culture...more

The 18-hole mini-golf is set up in a small botanical garden. The course was fun, and you learned about the history of the island and the vegetation as you meandered along. Good family fun.

I don't know, but I'd check out their website since it would list their contact info and probably the rates for all admissions.
