A fun introduction to one of the world's most frustrating pastimes.
Daily, 9am to 6pm
Two adjacent mini golf courses (plus an 18 hole “pitch and putt” / par three course – we haven’t graduated to that yet). As mini-golf courses go, the design veers more towards the classical than the wacky, with no windmills or castles; though the water features are fairly impressive. If you miss a bridge and drop into a stream, you’ll get to fish your ball out with a net, which is quite fun in itself. There are a few holes with steep inclines and short plateaus destined to frustrate younger golfers, but generally the courses are well designed, and longer than the average. We’ve been here a few times and it’s never been particularly busy, which is good if you have small children who might need the odd morale boosting mulligan. Or ten. It costs from $6 to $8 for your first round, age depending, but just a couple of dollars more for a second attempt. The place actually feels like a golf club, which therefore makes this the ritziest place I dare / can afford to take my child.
Mount Talbert Nature Park is nearby, as of course is Clackamas Town Center if you need to pick up some shopping.
you might want to try the Family Fun Center in Wilsonville, which also boasts two mini golf courses of the wackier variety.
