18 hole course that has delighted visitors for 50 years! Internationally known as one of the world’s most challenging and beautiful miniature golf courses. No fancy electronics, just a good old fashioned challenging & fun layout. Great for the whole family. Landscaping was re-done a year ago featuring native and endemic plants from the Island. Open every day of the year, weather permitting. Open extended hours during summer months.

We had slot of fun here. There are 18 holes. Each one is namd after a local site. The holes were fun, not too hard not too easy. Some were quite unique and we will come again.

Golf Gardens is well manicured, has beautiful brick walking paths, has markers at the beginning of every hole describing an aspect of history, or the plant life, or fascinating facts about Catalina. The holes are challenging, creative and fun. What a great time well spent!

What do you do when the kids are restless and you're done with water activities? Mini golf! The course is close to everything, no long walk. The cost is similar to mini golf on the mainland. The course is tucked into lush landscaping which provides...More
