Golf Gardens Miniature Golf, Avalon

4.6
A long-established island institution, Golf Gardens Miniature Golf features 18 fun and challenging holes for all ages. Putt your way around loops, hills, tunnels, and more, all set in 0.4 hectares (1 acre) of landscaped gardens. Don't expect the sort of quirky decorations that characterize some other mini golf courses, but make sure to look out for the informative displays about Catalina Island situated at each hole. The course's clever design endears it to locals and has also earned it a number of awards and guidebook mentions. Make your Avalon itinerary with Inspirock to find out what to see and where to go.

  • The Golf Gardens Miniature Golf course in Avalon is one of the best mini golf courses I've been to. It is well maintained and well planned. Each hole is themed around island history, wildlife, geograp...  more »
  • Hands down the best pure mini golf course I have ever been to. No windmills or hazard-like structures. This is a "shot-makers" course. If you can putt, you will get a good score and be challenged. New...  more »

  • Love this place. I go every year with my wife on our anniversary trip. Some holes are tougher than other but its still fun. Always clean and always fun. Ypu can get excursion tickets and also movie tickets at the cashier which is convenient. Try it!
  • The greens are decently fast compared to some of the courses I have played near home, and it's actually a challenging course as well. It's a little pricey, but that's to be expected on the island. If you're on Catalina, like mini golf, and have an hour or so to kill, it's worth it.
  • Great course. Always clean and well taken care of. A few homes are challenging, but not too difficult to frustrate you. Always play at least one round here and usually replay for only $5.
  • Very interesting place. Multi levels. Challenging course. The autumn leaves add flavor to the putt. Lots of shade.
  • Very fun, creative course. Resident cat mighty is awesome
