Putting Paradise: The 7 Best Mini Golf Courses on Cape Cod

The best mini golf courses on Cape Cod are surrounded by everything from pirate ships to fake alligators, and even a haunted treasure cave. The Cape has every type of mini-golf, so you will find one you enjoy.

Mini golf is a great option for a date night and the best kids’ activity on a Cape vacation. I am lucky enough to have the opportunity to vacation in Cape Cod every summer.  I love going there for the golf, good food, and beaches. Another thing that I also do every summer is play mini golf with my family.

Playing mini golf doesn’t translate to putting on a real course, but it is a fun activity, and I always make it competitive. I don’t care if I play against my wife, parents, or kids; I’m trying to win when I play…yes, there is a lot of trash-talking involved..

This guide shares the best mini golf courses on Cape Cod- from the Bourne Bridge to the outer Cape. With all these options, you will surely find your favorite mini golf course. But let me know if you have one I should include!

For each mini golf course, I will also include in the review:

  • Website and address (and phone number if available)
  • Design of the course
  • Amenities
  • Food options (including the best spot to grab ice cream)
