Nothing is more competitive yet fun than a game of mini-golf with your friends. The game works by taking it in turns, hitting the ball towards the hole with a tiny putter. The player that gets the ball in the quickest (with the least amount of shots) wins. Oh, I forgot to mention the ball may sometimes need to make its way through rotating windmills, red-hot dragons and treacherous jungles. Easy as pie! Here are 10 of the best indoor Mini-golf venues in the UK to really put you and your friends to the ultimate golfing test.

Children are hard to please; there’s no doubt about that. One place that they will definitely be pleased with and will enjoy immensely is Treetop Adventure Golf. Children can go through the tropical trial or become Indiana Jones in the Ancient Explorer course. Players are even in for a chance to win a free round with the bonus 19th hole. For adults (if you’re not playing) there’s a Treetop bar where you can enjoy a quick coffee, a local beer or even a cheeky cocktail.

Another mini-golf course to go is Junkyard Golf in Oxford. It’s retro, it’s sleek and most importantly it’s fun.

It’s a great place to have games with your friends and family.
Puttshack, White City
Location: Westfield, Ariel Way, London, W12 7HB
Another tech-infused mini-golf venue to go to is Puttshack. The courses here offer a different interactive game at every hole you go to. That means you could be trying to get the ball through a Ferris Wheel at one hole and then be tested your beer pong skills at another. Before you play a round of mini-golf, each ball is sanitised and is then dispersed with your game profile automatically linked to that ball. That means every point is counted and there is no room whatsoever to cheat.
Adventure Golf Island
Location: Fife Leisure Park, Whimbrel Pl, Dunfermline KY11 8EX
