“Hot work in the sun, but lots of fun”
Reviewed April 9, 2012

Saw the sign and turned up the long drive off the main ring road (just up from the Rarotongan Resort). Parking is before the building (big sign). Usual choice of putters and colored balls, a pencil and score card, and you are ready to begin. nicely laid out course, no surprises, a little disappointed that there was no "island" theme eg coconut obstacles etc. It was a hot afternoon when we played and we were glad for the shaded benches.

There was food and bar available, but we only stayed for an hour to play the 18 hours. Would definitely consider returning for an evening meal and a game at night (out of the heat sun)

“Good family fun”
Reviewed April 8, 2012

We had a couple of hours before our flight on a Sunday afternoon so took our 6 year old for a round of 18 holes of mini golf. Easy to find (sign posted on the main road, just up from the Rarotongan Resort /Budget car rental, and plenty of parking. Friendly hosts and a nice well kept mini putt course. $10 each for adults and $5 for children was good value for the hour we spent playing. Very hot but some shaded searing is provided. Great views looking inland...very "island"! Didn't stay for food or drink, but facilities looked nice. There are specials everyday (see the free Island Guide newspaper) eg Backpackers night on Wednesday.

“Go on backpacker night!”
Reviewed April 3, 2012

We went to Cocoputt on a Wednesday night, which is their backpacker night. For $15 we got a delicious burger, a drink (anything you want) and a game of mini golf... pretty good value! The actual mini golf course was just standard and not that exciting, but the real fun was because it was backpacker night, they organised us into groups and pitted us against each other, had prizes (shots) for certain holes and played some good tunes to get us in the mood. It was a pretty entertaining and fun night out and a good way to meet some of the younger crew on Raro. They even pick you up if you are staying at certain places. However, if you are a bit older, Wednesday night might not be the night for you because the crowd is pretty much young, drunk backpackers.

“Good game of minigolf”
Reviewed March 30, 2012

Friendly people, good course, more shade towards the back of the course would be quite good for us not used to the constant heat, otherwise a fine couple of hours! Bar and food facilities there - though kitchen not open all day, so plan your lunch around those times. We visited during the nightlife tour and the food looked great
