10 Family-Friendly Mini Golf Courses

From glow-in-the-dark, to bucolic country club swinging, there are plenty of options for mini golf in and around Portland. Here are some of the best.

The 19th Hole. It’s official! Hotel deLuxe’s pop-up mini golf course will be returning this June! Part beer garden, part golf spot, this nine-hole mini golf course is good for the whole family, and even better for a date night. There are over 75 craft beers available, along with cart food and Pacific Northwest ciders. $6/person. 729 SW 15th Ave, Portland

Eagle Landing Golf Course. This well-heeled mini golf experience offers 36 holes of perfectly groomed, straightforward mini golf. You’ll find water features, perfectly-maintained flower beds and a general country club atmosphere. They also offer foot golf—bring your own soccer ball to save the $5 rental fee. $6.50 ages 5 and under; $7.50 ages 6-12 and seniors; $8.50 adults for 18 holes, and free golf on your birthday! 10220 SE Causey Ave., Happy Valley

Glowing Greens. Glowing Greens specializes in mini golf—and it goes all out. Their courses really do glow, thanks to black light, are indoor, and 3-D, with themes like pirate adventure, under sea voyage, and alien adventure. p.s. they offer free mini golf on your birthday! $11.50 ages 12-54; $9 ages 4-11, 55+ and military. 509 SW Taylor St., Portland; 3855 SW Murray Blvd., Beaverton

Oaks Park. Of course, we all know about the rides at Oaks Park—from the historic carousel to the roller coasters. But Oaks Park also has a picturesque, nature-themed mini golf course on site beginning weekends in April and lasting through the summer. Added bonus: it’s largely in the shade, making it a great break from the super-sunny rides area. $7 ages 6 and up; $2 age 5 and younger.

Safari Mini Golf Vancouver. This 18-hole black light golf course is located right in the Vancouver mall. The Safari Mini Golf course, unsurprisingly, has a safari theme, with life-sized safari animals. You can even stuff your own animals to bring home for an additional charge.  $9 ages 12 and over; $8 ages 11 and under, seniors and military. 8700 NE Vancouver Mall Dr., Suite 102, Vancouver

Safari Sams. This time-tested destination for getting kids’ wiggles out has a mini golf course in addition to its massive jungle gym structure. The 18-hole golf course is jungle-themed, glow in the dark and has cool special effects. Admission for kids is $4.99 Monday through Thursday, $7.49 weekends and school holidays. Golf is an additional $5. 16260 SW Langer Dr., Sherwood

The Tiki Putt. This mini golf destination is blacklight-lit, with a Tahitian theme. You’ll encounter tiki huts, jungles, and even an active volcano as you putt your way through 18 holes! $10 per visit, $7 Monday-Thursday 3-6 pm. 1694 NW Fairview Dr., Gresham

Tualatin Island Greens. Tualatin Greens offers challenging mini golf in a picturesque, country club setting. It’s like playing golf, just miniaturized, with water hazards, sand bunkers, and undulating surfaces. Golf is a bargain too, at only $5 per person. 20400 SW Cipole Rd., Tualatin

Twin Pines Country Club. This isn’t like any country club you’ve ever seen, and it’s just so perfectly Portland. This six-hole course is not a business—just a family’s yard-turned-mini golf course! There is no cost to play. 8434 SE Clay St., Portland

Wilsonville Family Fun Center. You’ll find mini golf and much more at this Wilsonville family favorite. They’ve also got Go-Karts, a zipline, laser tag, a ropes course, rock wall—the list goes on. But if it’s mini golf you’re looking for, they’ve got that too! There are two different courses to choose from, both 18 holes. $9 ages 5 and up. 29111 SW Town Center Loop W, Wilsonville
