Overview
More
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.

It was really fun for us, two 50 somethings and a 16 year old. Landscaping is pretty and there are even educational snippets about the island for folks to read posted on the course. It was a great low key couple hours.

My friend and I had a blast playing this course on a cruise stopover. It wasn't crowded at all. I was surprised to see that it was an 18-hole course -- it didn't't look that big. The landscape is beautiful. The succulent plants and huge...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. Newly renovated with fresh turf and well maintained. Good...More

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.
