Instead, the game is played on a "course", generally consisting of an arranged progression of either 9 or 18 "holes". Each hole on the course must contain a "tee box" and a "putting green" with the actual hole, and there are various other standardized forms of terrain in between such as the fairway, rough, and hazards, but each hole on a course and indeed among virtually all courses is unique in its specific layout and arrangement.

It's Golf that's meant to glow..... I think the first few holes 'glowed' but then on it was just 'Dark Golf' So it was still ok to play, but considering the quality of other mini golf courses across Melbourne and suburbs, I won't be going back.

The advert described such fun, but the experience was a let down. Facilities not well maintained, over priced.

The kids (aged 5 and 7) were hanging to go here as they love mini golf, but glow in the dark mini golf just sounded more exciting! We loved the Australian theme inside and the ambient sounds playing while you golf. Some cool tunes also playing. Most of these holes were OK for younger kids and the kids just loved... More

Lots of fun with friends, but a very busy place (Friday night) and we had to wait for our turn to play some holes. It took under an hour and we liked the atmosphere. Improve the pathways though, as narrow in parts and people unintentionally step on your course. Enjoyed our game and would visit again. Our tickets were included... More

Docklands has so much to do and Glow Golf was a pleasant surprise to get out of the cold and misty rain for a while. This is a small venue but the gentleman at the front desk was a real pleasure. I think this would be more suitable for younger children up to younger teens as it is the company... More

This is a tricky one to review. On the one hand we had an awesome time. On the other hand that was mainly from enjoying each other's company and not so much from the mini golf. It costs 14$ per person which is pretty reasonable if you compare it to say movie tickets or ten pin bowling. But if you... More

Thank you for your review and that you spent your valuable time in writing what you have. We have been slowly improving the course (although one of our bug bears is trying to get something suitable that is long wearing and can make the holes glow brighter) over the years and its usually subtly different on your next visit.

Glow golf is easily accessible via Melbourne's public transport system inside a major mall. It is cheap and takes about an hour to complete. The course isn't anything overly fancy. However, the UV lights and glow in the dark is what makes this place unique. It is a quick, affordable way to spend an hour.

This place is filled with couples at night time and has that average mini golf feeling. I haven't played mini golf in years so this was a cute place to go, the glow in the dark adds an old-school/glowstick touch. You might have to wait your turn if there are people in front of you for the next hole, but... More

Took our family of 2 adults and two girls(10 and 4 yrs) to Glow Golf at Docklands. We had high expectations and as we were in Docklands for the first time we were pleasantly surprised with the area. Really modern, neat and peaceful. Great choice of restaurants, coffee shops, retail shopping and of course great scenery in the general Docklands... More

Thank you so much for your review, we are located in an actual shop so the venue is on the smaller side, the majority of the entry price is due to the rent we pay, if we were in the suburbs the price would be less than half. As a small family business we try our best, we even offer... More
