Shorten your swing and putt away on a mini golf course for your next budget-friendly family outing. Here’s our picks for the best mini golf courses in Melbourne and regional Victoria.

Golf has surged in popularity in recent years. While mini golf is known as the casual, kid-friendly version of the sport, there’s no doubt this form of golf still gets the competitive juices flowing.

For the little ones, mini golf is an accessible way to introduce the world of golf and learn key skills of the sport, such as putting. For adults and buddying golfers, mini golf makes for a fun date night activity, holiday activity or low-impact exercise.

No two mini golf courses are the same across Melbourne and regional Victoria. Whether you’re heading out on a family road trip, staying at a RACV resort or looking for a simple budget-friendly activity to enjoy, test your putting precision with a round of mini golf at one of the state's best courses. Soon enough, you might find yourself taking on larger, beautifully-designed golf courses around Victoria with your kids.

RACV Members save on family-friendly mini golf courses around Victoria including Boneo Discovery Park and Grampians Adventure Golf.
