Recommended length of visit: 1-2 hours
Owner description: This is not your typical miniature golf course. There are no clown's mouths or windmills to shoot through. This 18 hole putting green style course is set amongst beautiful botanical gardens representing the different eras of Hawaii's culture. Meanwhile, water hazards, pipe shots, and many other obstacles make for a fun and challenging experience. Along the way you will travel through Hawaii's history, learning about the islands storied past and its beautiful tropical flora. This combination of recreation with education in a beautiful setting creates a truly unique experience for both the local community and visitors on Kauai's North Shore. Furthermore, mini golf is a great game for keiki, kapuna, dates, families, and even those looking to brush up on their short game. We look forward to welcoming you at Kauai's newest attraction!

“Family fun”
Reviewed 29 March 2014

Our competitive family of 5 adults had a blast on this fun course. The layout is great, and the gardens are beautiful. The history of the Island was an added bonus. We would definitely return for another couple hours of silly fun.

“Nicely Done for an Hour of Fun”
Reviewed 29 March 2014

Kauai Mini Golf is a nice putt-putt golf course, with lots of Hawaiian flora throughout the course. Many of the holes have detailed signage about the history of agriculture on the islands.

It took us an hour or so to play through the 18 holes. There are a few points where you can skip to other holes, which we took advantage of to skip around a family of eight. We enjoyed it very much, and there were quite a few families with children of various ages who seemed to enjoy it to. I believe that children 4 and under play for free.

We visited Kauai Mini Golf after taking the Kauai Fresh Farms Wai Koa Plantation tour, which entitled us to a 25% discount. The price for two adults is normally $36, so we paid $27. A little pricey, but the course was well-maintained, well-designed, and enjoyable. The Namahana Cafe shares the location with the course (owned by the same folks), in case you want a bite to eat while there.

“this is how a mini golf course is done!”
Reviewed 28 March 2014

We were extremely impressed with the surrounds of the mini golf course, that so much effort has gone into making the course attractive and also educational. We had a couple of hours to kill, and it had stopped raining when we drove past this course, chucked a U-turn and went to enjoy!

“Beautiful place to play mini golf”
Reviewed 18 March 2014 via mobile

This is such a beautiful garden. I enjoyed playing here. It's a bit challenging if you are right handed! It's a bit expensive but we had fun.

“Fun, but a little pricey”
Reviewed 15 March 2014

We did this mini-golf on our last afternoon in Kauai. It was $37 for 2 adults, which was definitely overpriced, but whatever. It's Hawaii, everything is overpriced. It was a beautiful place. Not really what I think of when it comes to botanical gardens, but there were lots of different plants and flowers to enjoy along the way. The course was fun and interesting. The staff was super nice.
