8 mini-golf courses for family fun around Seattle and beyond
Here's our list of terrific family- and budget-friendly mini-golf courses in the Greater Seattle area. Have fun!
1. Interbay Golf Center — read all about our experience playing here — is located between the Seattle neighborhoods of Queen Anne and Magnolia. Summer hours are 6 a.m.–10 p.m. They don't take reservations, so just show up. Adults play for $9, youths ages 17 and younger $6.50. Maximum size of a group: 5.
2. The Family Fun Center in Tukwila has two outdoor 18-hole mini-golf courses to try out: Memory Lane and Arctic Adventure. Mini golf here is recommended for ages 5 and older, and costs $10 plus tax per person. The Kidopolis, VR Challenge, Sling Shot and Screamin’ Swing are closed; all the other attractions and the arcade are open. (Note that the Family Fun Center in Edmonds is permanently closed.)
3. Rainbow Run Putting Course at Willows Run in Redmond is open seven days a week, and it’s first come, first served; they don't take reservations. The cost is $12.67 for teens and adults ($11.51 if you arrive before 11 a.m.); $8.64 for kids ages 12 and younger ($6.91 before 11 a.m.)
4. High Trek Adventures in Everett is known for its huge ropes course with zip lines, and it also offers laser tag, axe throwing (!!) and mini golf. The mini golf course is a very simple, no-frills 18-hole setup around the ropes course. Book a tee time online to play. When you arrive, check in and you’ll get a golf ball, putter, scorecard and pencil. Cost: $8 for ages 11 and older, $6 for ages 7–10, or $5 with the purchase of a same-day ropes course ticket.
5. King Family Fun Center in Puyallup (formerly Skate Tiffany's) is open now for outdoor mini golf. Book a reservation online to guarantee your tee time; walk-ups are available but there may be a wait. Cost is $10 for adults and kids ages 4 and older; kids 3 and younger are free. Skating, the arcade and the café remain closed because of a devastating fire last September. There’s a GoFundMe page related to the fire damage.
6. The driving range, mini-golf course and Valley Grill at Snohomish Valley Golf Center in Snohomish are open daily. Groups of up to five people can play the 18-hole championship mini-golf course. Cost is $10 for adults; $8 for kids and seniors (ages 55 and older and 12 and younger). It’s first come, first served, so no reservations are needed.
7. Parkland Putters in Tacoma offers four levels of mini-golf courses — ranging from easy to hard. Sand traps, trees, hills and hidden holes will give you extra challenges to conquer and a chance to win a ribbon. Cost is $6.50 for ages 13 and older, $5.50 for ages 12 and younger, and $3.50 for extra rounds.
8. Mini golf, go karts and batting cages are open at Mike 'N' Terry’s Outdoor Fun Park in Puyallup. Mini golf runs $8.50 for one course, $12.75 for both; kids shorter than 48 inches in height are $4.25. Bring cash.
Bonus: When you're ready to take your golf game to the next level, head to Green Lake Pitch & Putt. The course is back to walk-in only — no more tee times! To avoid the most busy times, avoid arriving between 11 and 11:30 a.m. and 5 and 6 p.m. on weekdays, and between noon and 4 p.m. on weekends. Cost is $10 for adults, or $8 for youths ages 17 and younger and seniors ages 65 and older.
