Overview

This is not your typical miniature golf course. There are no clown's mouths or windmills to shoot through. This 18 hole putting green style course is set within a lush Hawaiian botanical garden representing the different eras of Hawaii's culture. Meanwhile, water hazards, pipe shots, and many other obstacles make for a fun and challenging experience. Along the way you will travel through Hawaii's history, learning about the islands storied past and its beautiful tropical flora. This combination of recreation with education in a beautiful setting creates a truly unique experience for both the local community and visitors on Kauai's North Shore. Furthermore, mini golf is a great game for keiki, kupuna, dates, families, and even those looking to brush up on their short game. While on the Anaina Hou campus, enjoy free events, casual dining, farmers markets and more!

This is a great spot near Kilauea on Kauai. The mini golf is not your usual castles and clowns, but instead offers information about Kauai and the local flora, fauna and history. The 18 hole course will take about an hour. There is also a...More

After a great breakfast in Princeville we decided to play miniature golf. This is a fun course with a lot of water traps. Rate it A. While they also offer shave ice, it was skimpy on the flavor. Get your shave ice elsewhere.

It was a fine mini golf course, but I feel like we would have had a better time at the beach. Come if you're looking for something light and different. If you're in Kauai for a limited time, there are better activities, and there are...More

I didn't actually play minigolf here, but the staff did let me walk around the course. It is beautifully architected with signs that indicate which plant you are walking past. If given more time, I would have loved to play a game here.

I don't know, but I'd check out their website since it would list their contact info and probably the rates for all admissions.
