Now that summer is just about here it’s a great time for the family to hit the golf green—the mini golf green that is. From indoor courses that glow in the dark (perfect for rainy or too-hot-to-think-straight summer days) to outdoor greens that are stunningly landscaped, these mini golf courses in Ottawa are fantastic for family bonding this summer. Challenge your family and head out to one of these fab spots that we’ve rounded up.
The Putting Edge (Ottawa West)
You won’t just find green at The Putting Edge, but all the colours that glow. This indoor, glow-in-the-dark putting facility is located in Nepean. They’re open weekdays, Saturdays and Sundays at 10 am. We love that a lot of time can be spent in one spot thanks to the different activities offered (in addition to the mini golf, there’s an on-site arcade) and that kids of all ages are sure to find something to love.
Mini Golf Gardens (Ottawa West)
There are two 18-hole mini golf courses at Mini Golf Gardens. With water features and beautifully kept gardens, this mini putt location is a wonderful way to enjoy being outside while having fun as a family. We love that there is a snack bar so we can reward ourselves with an ice cream treat after we tally up our scores. Look into a season membership for extended fun. Mini Golf Gardens is open 7 days a week from June to August.
Blackbird Falls Putting Course (Ottawa West)
As part of The Marshes Golf Club, Blackbird Falls putting course certainly has the feel of a larger golf course but scaled to a miniature size. With beautifully landscaped holes but real golf features like bunkers and water hazards, even the most professional golfer in the house will appreciate this mini-course.
Mer Bleue Mini Golf (Ottawa East)
Children of all ages and golfers of all skill levels will love the Mer Bleue Mini Golf course. With 18 holes filled with artificial turf, waterfalls, hazards and challenges to delight everyone playing, this location on Navan Road is perfect for families. Plan to extend your stay and grab a snack or drink between games; there’s a discount for your second game!
Karter’s Korner (Ottawa West)
Karter’s Korner is known for their go-karts, but there’s a stellar mini putt course available for families to check out too! Located in Stittsville, Karter’s Korner has 18 holes with fun obstacles to overcome. You can also use the Plinko board to try your chance at winning a free game.
