Move aside, rom-coms: we’re upping the standards for date night goals everywhere with the top spots for mini golf Brisbane has to offer.
It’s time to whip out those score-cards and prep your trash talk (not too trashy though—it is date night guys), because these courses are the best relationship test this side of IKEA. Or, you know, just a great place to take your crew on the weekend.
Fancy a round? Here’s where to find the best mini golf courses in Brisbane.
FORTITUDE VALLEY AND BRISBANE
Brace yourself for complete and putter madness. Holey Moley, the cult-like-chip-and-putt that took the city by storm a few years ago now has two epic Brisbane locations, and you’ll want to make sure you check them both out. Their Fortitude Valley location was once a church but it’s now a huge, two-story, revamped putt putt lover’s dream. Their newer Brisbane city location is inside Strike Bowling so if you find yourself sick of mini golf (which is practically impossible) then you can always take the competition to the bowling alley. Both venues are offering an abundance of punny, sugar tapped cocktails and plenty of food to keep everyone satisfied. The set designs for each green are also something to behold so whether you can get the ball in the hole honestly doesn’t even matter when the course is this much fun.
Got a few hours to putter around? Brisbane icon Victoria Park is known for some of the best mini golf fun in town (and not just for the frosty beer you can sling in your other hand). Whether you’re mapping out date night or your next birthday gathering, this fully licensed day and night course is the ultimate mini golf experience. Bonus, the views of the city skyline are something else, as long as you tear your eyes away before you start swinging.
St Lucia Golf Link
Set amongst the beautiful, leafy St Lucia scenery this putt putt course is part of the stunning St Lucia Golf Links venue. The course’s new addition is perfect for those who like the idea of golf but not the whole serious golfer thing—so basically most of you. The putt putt course is open from 7am–9pm daily so you can go every night after work to brush up on your skills before you get your gang together for a round. You’re also more than welcome to grab a drink from the Garden Golf Pavillion Bar to quench your thirst while you play.
Undersea Putt & Play
If you’ve ever found yourself playing putt putt and wishing you could play underwater, surrounded by glow in the dark sea creatures, you are in luck. Redcliffe has the perfect course for mini golf lovers looking for a change of scenery. Undersea Putt & Play is perfect for kids and adults alike—the 18-hole green transports you to the bottom of the ocean with real and mythical sea creatures being the feature of the course. Once you’ve completed the course there’s a café and bar attached, plus an arcade full of games if you want to stay competitive.
Golf Central Brisbane Airport
Ladies and gentlemen, this is your captain speaking. Stow those tray tables and get your driver ready, we’re about to travel the world in 18 holes. Whether you’re touching down, waiting for a flight or shopping until you drop at DFO, this spot is worth a fly by for some of the best mini golf Brisbane has to offer. Plus, with balls served up next to beer, burgers and punny cocktails (shout out to the Who’s Your Caddy), a round at Golf Central just sounds so much better than trawling the sales racks at DFO, doesn't it?
Meadowbrook Golf Course
The Meadowbrook mini golf course is truly one of a kind. It’s the first ever mini golf course in Logan so now southsiders can access the exhilarating fun that is putt putt right on their doorstep. The 18-hole course caters for both pros and beginners so if you’re just getting started in your mini golf career there’s zero judgment here. To top it off there’s a food truck and beer garden adjacent to the course and the venue is fully licensed so you can sip and putt your way through the experience.
Just when you thought annihilating your friends’ putt-putt scores couldn’t get more beautiful, life, uh, finds a way. Like the elusive velociraptor, your very own Jurassic adventure lies in wait, tucked within the rainforest canopy of Mt Tamborine. Line up those balls at Thunderbird Park’s dino-themed mini golf for an expedition through water hazards, rock traps, bridges and almost definitely no raptors. Probably.
Mt Gravatt Mini Golf
Put your best foot forward at this out-of-the-box golfing experience. Along with 18 holes of mini golf, Brisbane putters flock to Mt Gravatt Mini Golf for its specialty footgolf course. Just for kicks, we recommend checking it out: footgolf swaps putters for your feet, and the golf ball for a soccer ball. You get the gist.
