Mini Golf!

I love mini golf! It's roughly about $5 per person to play. They're all located in family fun centers too, which includes all kinds of other things to do as well. Here are all the courses in town:

1.)Desert Falls at Concord Lanes (South County)
This family friendly, 18-hole course draws in crowds with offerings for every age and a fun-filled course featuring a kid-sized waterfall cave. Exciting painted Native Americans and animal statues, including an open-mouthed snake hole, keep kids engaged while they wait their turn. Arizona Action Park boasts 32 lanes of bowling, three sand volleyball courts, nine batting cages and event planning for any occasion. The facility can accommodate up to 72 golfers. 

2.)Tower Tee (Affton)  CLOSED AS OF JULY 2018
Tower Tee miniature golf, opened in the mid 1960s, is one of St. Louis’ oldest courses. The miniature golf course features original designs celebrating the history of St Louis. The first hole is Route 66 — St. Louis was the third major city on the historic route. Additional holes replicate Lindberg’s flight from St. Louis to Paris, Union Station, Phil the Gorilla, and Ted Drewes. 

3.) Tee Time (South County) CLOSED AS OF 2017
The newly remodeled Tee Time miniature golf course features 18 holes with real sand traps and water hazards, miniaturizing the fun of a real golf course. This more challenging course includes animal sculptures and a three-level putting hole that cascades through each level. It offers four-hour passes, birthday specials and rain checks for bad weather. Tee Time is popular for summer date nights and family fun days with bumper cars and boats, a soft play area for the little ones, and a 3-D maze.

4.)Chesterfield Sports Fusion (Chesterfield) INDOOR ONLY
Regardless of what you prefer to call it, there is no doubt that this game is a classic American family tradition that stretches back more than 100 years.  At Sports Fusion we have simply improved on the original by bringing it indoors where rain, snow, cold, searing heat, humidity, and blood thirsty mosquitoes never spoil the good times or your desire to play a round. (rather plain course) 

5.)Cave Spring Golf Center (St. Charles)
Mini-golf course & driving range in a simple roadside setting bordering on farmland.

6.)Swing-Around Fun Town (St. Charles & Fenton)
Both St. Louis locations offer miniature golf. St. Charles features an 18-hole course with a tree house, castle and windmill. The Fenton location features three nine-hole courses with an old-school design complete with water wheels, fountains, a castle and lighthouse. The miniature golf courses are quaint, but these facilities also offer go karts, bumper boats, batting cages and an arcade to keep the whole family engaged.

Experience, family-friendly, neighborhood miniature golf in Valley Park, only about 20 minutes from most people, with Waterfalls, Streams, Ponds, and beautiful flowers.

Centerfield Park features two spacious miniature golf courses, each with 18 holes of challenging and exciting obstacles. Enjoy the beautiful flowers, waterfalls and landscaping as you accept the challenge of our uniquely designed courses.  Extensive use of shade trees and pines enhance the backdrop. need for sunglasses! After the game, you can re-live your round over soft drinks and other refreshments on our patio overlooking the park-like setting.


10.)Gateway Fun Park (Collinsville IL)
Gateway Fun Park miniature golf, open since 2000, has two 18-hole courses. Each miniature golf course features old-fashioned houses, a saloon and a sawmill.

12.)Bonne Terre Family Fun Center (Bonne Terre) INDOOR AND OUTDOOR!
Enjoy the beauty of lush landscapes, elevated greens and waterfalls as you take on the realistic contours and formidable roughs. Bonne Terre Family Fun Center has an indoor 9 hole miniature golf course designed around our beautiful Coy Pond and waterfall. For those who want to brave the weather, we offer 18 holes of fun in the sun, complete with waterfall and outdoors theme.
Half of our holes have obstacles you must shoot through or around, and the other half have challenging greens you must read to play well.

13.) Putting Edge (The Mills Mall, Hazelwood) INDOOR ONLY & GLOW IN THE DARK
Black-light, 18-hole mini-golf course with themes including the ocean, jungle & outer space.
Putting Edge is the world’s leader of one of the most successful concepts in the entertainment industry. It provides a new and exciting twist on the traditional game of miniature golf. We've taken your regular mini golf, set in a Glow-in-the-Dark environment, turned off the lights and turned up the music for an experience like no other. Our challenging, indoor, 18 hole “Glow-in-the-Dark” golf course adds a whole new dimension to the game of miniature golf.

14.) Rusty Wallace Karting Center (The Mills Mall, Hazelwood) 
 A new family fun center opening in May 2017 including mini golf, bumper boats, go karts, and video games. They are taking over the space where NASCAR Speedpark was located.  This entertainment venue will feature up to 60 go-karts, designed like NASCAR sports cars, to give guests the thrill of a racing experience around the two tracks. The company is named after Rusty Wallace, a 55-time race winner, 2013 NASCAR Hall of Fame inductee. 

15.)Family Golf and Learning Center (Kirkwood)
"Circles, Tilt, Dropsy: The names of the holes are as straightforward and simple as the holes themselves seem to be. But don't be deceived. The turf is quick, the hazards — hills, curves, strategically placed rocks — subtle, like a sparsely decorated room that adheres to the principles of feng shui. This well-designed course demands ample skill and foresight, and though there's just one par-four hole (No. 9), more than a few are confounding enough to leave a golfer cursing and pushing the half-dozen-stroke mark."
