This is your typical mini golf place everyone. Kinda cared for, kinda not. $7 for kiddos (12 and under), and $10 for adults. I do believe this is the only one in Galveston but I may be incorrect. All in all I’d go here again...More

My daughter's favorite color is blue. She naturally wanted to play with the blue putter. When she went to take it, she was loudly and rudely told she couldn't have it because it was 2 inches too tall for her. "It's a safety issue" we...More

Family of 4, kids 11 and 14. Fun had by all. We did easy course. Has moving items to make some holes more difficult. Course could use some updated paint and TLC but it was a fun late afternoon activity for about $10 a piece.

This mini golf is cool. Kind of vintage with goofy holes that make you laugh. It is old tho, so be prepared for lumpy greens and tricky lips on the tin cups. Lots of old growth landscaping gives good shade.

There are 2 18-hole mini-golf courses. And they are both so fun. The back 18, which is suppose to be harder, was not all working when we came due to Hurricane Harvey, but I know it would be much more fun with everything working. We...More
