Miniature golf is an awesome way to spend an afternoon or evening with the family. Here are a few fun courses around the Indy area to check out!
3421 E. 96th St., Indianapolis
This putt-putt course, located at Royal Pin Entertainment, includes two 18-hole pirate-themed courses. With the flowing blue water, pirate décor and lush greenery, you might forget for a while that you are Indianapolis! For even more fun, visit the entertainment center, where you’ll find bowling, laser-tag and an arcade. This is definitely a must-try for a fun family staycation afternoon.
This is truly miniature golf, not putt putt. The holes are a bit longer than the average miniature golf course, but many people say that it is still just as accessible for all ages. Located on the east side of Indianapolis, Rustic is definitely the oldest mini-golf course in the area. It’s been a part of the community for more than 100 years! There are 27 holes on this course, and it is a completely natural environment — no turf. If you happen to fall in love with the course, they host a men’s and women’s summer league, which includes weekly play for $50.
49 W. Maryland St., Indianapolis
Located on Level 2 of Circle Center Mall, the indoor course at Glowgolf literally glows in the dark! The walls are decorated in a neon jungle theme, and it’s a cool way to spend a hot summer afternoon. Along with glow-in-the-dark mini golf, visitors can also try to escape a laser maze.
3000 N. Meridian St., Indianapolis
The mini golf course at The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis is just one of 12 sports experiences to try out at Riley Children’s Health Sports Legends Experience. There are four 9-hole courses, which pay tribute to the design history of Indiana natives, Pete and Alice Dye. Every hole is a replica of their most famous designs from around the world. There is a course for each level of golfer — even a toddler course!
5341 Elmwood Ave., Indianapolis
This putt-putt place features two tiki-themed 18-hole courses, which are both equally challenging and well-maintained. The cool thing about Great Times is that, along with miniature golf, there are a day’s worth of activities waiting for you: go-karts, bumper boats, kiddie carts and an arcade.
632 IN-32, Westfield
Indy’s newest mini golf establishment is located in Westfield. As far as Indy mini golf goes, Birdies is definitely the most high-end. It includes two 18-hole courses with a mountain theme. It is a clean, aesthetically pleasing space that provides enough of a challenge to keep everyone entertained. Do reward yourself with a meal on the patio afterwards — you won’t be disappointed.
Mini golf is so often associated with vacation, but the diverse assortment of courses in the Indy area means you can feel like you are on vacation for a lot less money!
