The absolute best mini golf in Perth


No golfing experience is necessary, there is no age barrier and no joining fee to get out on the greens with this 18 hole course in the stunning Swan Valley. I can only be talking about mini golf!

The whole family can putt their way around this brand new million dollar course 7 days a week from 8am until late with the course being flood lit until 9pm for night owls.



This spectacular addition to The Vines Resort & Country Club is open to the general public, locals, in-house guests, tourists and visitors alike. It is already a massive hit with the crowds that have been there every day since opening in September 2017.

In teams of up to six players, it should take about 1 hour to complete the course with no bookings required for games. Featuring a red and blue course, each green has two holes, so a return visit will offer a new challenge and layout.



Each hole is curated with a 'risk and reward' design philosophy, so that players are tempted into playing the risky or heroic shot, whilst still given an opportunity to play it safe. Of course, to make the hole in one you will need to take a risk and play the shot perfectly. It is possible as my 10-year-old daughter proved!

Vines Mini Golf is the perfect activity for children's birthdays, for corporate team building or as a sundowner with the events team able to organise nibbles and drinks on course or after your game. (Bookings required for events).

Overlooking the full size course from the mini course


The landscaping of the course is very sympathetic to the local area with materials used to blend in with the backdrop of the wine growing region of the Swan Valley. They have used raw, natural materials like rock, native grasses and plants and timber railway sleepers, to create a really pleasing hard landscape that will stand the test of time. The course is partly surrounded by grape vines in keeping with the region and once they are more established, will enhance the picturesque setting even more.

Dotted around the course are items including a tractor, wine barrels, a grape press etc to set the scene even more.



As with real courses, water is a major feature. There is a large pond at the front with a creek running through the course to an another pond at the rear, so water hazards abound. There are a few ball scoopers by the water in case you find your ball in the water.



There are Koi and goldfish in the ponds and if you are there at the right time of day, you can ask the staff if you can feed the fish.




Tickets are purchased at the cafe and 18 holes is $10 per child and $15 per adult or get a family pass for $39. Children under 10 will need to be fully supervised during the game.

Take your ticket to the entrance of the course


You take your ticket to the entrance to the course and exchange it for a putter and ball. Collect your scorecard and pencil, read the rules and you are ready to play.



You may want to use the practise green to warm up before playing the course and at the end of the course, there is a photo opportunity of the 1st, 2nd and 3rd placed players on the podium.

There are seats dotted around the course with some being large old trees cut in half and sanded to create a safe and stable place to rest whilst you wait your turn.

The attention to detail in this course is amazing and compliments the opulent feel of the whole resort. It's the best I have seen in Perth.

Check the website for up to date information regarding the course and any closures etc before travelling.

There are several food options available including a cafe right by the mini golf with plenty of seating overlooking the real golf course and resort swimming pools. (Pools only for use by in-house guests and members.)

A visit to the resort lends itself well to a really good family fun day out. How about Sunday lunch with family or friends, a game of mini golf and then spend the afternoon chatting in the glorious surroundings? The kids will be entertained with the small playground and can play 'spot the real kangaroo'. There is plenty of free parking at the resort too.



The gift vouchers would make a fabulous birthday or Christmas present for those that have everything or those wanting to give a different gift. Or maybe you want to make a weekend of it and spend a day at the resort swimming and golfing and then a day visiting the 300 or so vineyards in the area?

In summary, this is one of Perth's best venue's for family fun and I arge you to visit soon, if you haven't already. Once you do visit, it will make it to the top of your list of favourite places to go.
