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.

This is a very interesting course with lots of beautiful gardening around it. The price is a little steep, but that's what you get with Catalina. Gets backed up when the cruise ship is in town, try to avoid those times.
