The hero of every first date, mini golf deserves praise. It professes to be nothing than what it actually is: a more accessible version of a beloved but difficult sporting pastime. So if you’re looking to practice your putts or just to have a good time with family and friends, consider one of the following 7 mini golf courses in Utah.
Boondocks Food & Fun has it all: go karts, bowling, laser tag, bumper boats, arcade games, and (you guessed it) some mean mini golf. With two themed 18-hole miniature golf courses (which include fire-breathing lizards, suspended bridges, a volcano, and even an “angry Tiki Man”), Boondock’s is a popular and easy to access spot (it is located just off Utah’s main freeway, I-15), perfect for families and birthday parties.
Fat Cats has multiple locations in Utah, but only one location with a miniature golf course. Its pirate-themed, glow-in-the-dark course is small (just nine holes), but is only one part of the Fat Cats package. Here you can mini golf, eat quality pizza, play arcade games, and engage in a competitive game of bowling.
Similar to Fat Cats, All Star Bowling & Entertainment is an activity-oriented jack of all trades. With an arcade, bowling, bumper cars, cosmic bowling, laser tag, and a climbing wall, you’d think the miniature golf course would be average. It is a short glow-in-the-dark-course, but offers a wonderful amount of golfing variety.
Conveniently located in downtown St. George, Laser Mania Family Fun Center has nearly all of the same activities as Fat Cats and All Star Bowling. It also has a “Retrocade,” which is an arcade with nostalgic retro games. Parents love Laser Mania Family Fun Center because it is focused on creating a 100 percent family-friendly environment.
At Fiesta Fun Center, you don’t have to pay to do everything under one ticket. You can buy package tickets so that you only do the activities you want to do, and pay accordingly. With an in-house grill, as well as birthday and group package deals, Fiesta Fun Center also has a larger miniature golf course than its counterparts: 18 outdoor holes that capitalize on your desire for some fresh air.
Mulligan’s Golf and Games is all about making miniature golf more of a “game.” With surprising features, structures, and interactive elements, the two mini golf courses come at a good price and with an appealing neighborhood feel.
With 36 holes of mini golf, it’s hard to beat Toad’s Fun Zone in Ogden. With all the regular fixtures (think driving ranges, batting cages, go karts, and laser tag), Toad’s Fun Zone has different specials depending on the day. Typically, the mini golf price is the same for children as it is for adults. Here, you’re paying for 36 holes of both indoor and outdoor mini golf, rather than the typical nine or 18.
