Mini golf (also titled miniature golf or crazy golf) is an excellent activity for groups of all ages. Yes, it can apparently be taken seriously for some people, but the majority play it as a fun activity. Tiny loops, water traps, and putting the ball into an animal’s mouth all provide entertainment no matter what the skill level may be. Here’s a focus on New York City mini golf courses to enjoy when the warm weather hits full stride.
Randall’s Island Golf & Sport – Relatively cheap at $7 for adults, this course provides lots of fun, entertainment, and an incredible view of Manhattan’s UES (Upper East Side.) This course is open all year long, so if interested, grab some friends for drinks on the course or peel the children away from electronics and get them outside (children’s prices are $5 each.) The course provides 36 holes with difficulties ranging from novice to expert. At $4 for an adult replay to $3 for children, this is a great deal for a family-friendly atmosphere.
Brooklyn Golf Center – As it was recently renovated in 2010, they have only made the course better than it already was. This 18-hole course has everything that usually comes to your imagination when it comes to mini golf. They have a driving range at this mini golf center as well if you feel restricted on how far you can knock a golf ball. The prices range from $8 for adults and $5 for children.
Pier 25 – At $5 for adults and $4 for children, this course has great reception from everyone who has utilized the course. Pier 25 is a really great place to spend the day even if not participating in any “mini golf madness” as there are shops, activities, and other parks in the area. Fun Fact: They also shoot interiors for Law & Order SVU at a nearby studio as well.
This list is just a few suggestions regarding fun options to bring family, dates, or friends when in New York City as hours of time can easily be spent laughing and enjoying oneself at these mini golf locations. When considering any method of wasting an afternoon on memories these offers should be up for consideration due to the relatively cheap price (for NYC entertainment) as it almost eliminates any excuse for “not having anything to do” in the city that never sleeps.
