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!

Be warned that they’re currently under construction so they only had 8 playable holes. They did allow us to repeat holes and charged only a portion of the cost. But good thing we didn’t travel there just for golf. When they’re back and fully functioning...More

Nice mini golf coupled with walking through a botanical garden. Lots of signs displaying plant names etc and descriptions of flora and fauna that has impacted Kauai.

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.
