Melbourne is known for many things, from its famous restaurants to incredible art galleries.
But one thing that many people don't know is that Melbourne is home to some of the best Mini Golf courses if you're looking to sharpen your skills or have some fun.
Whether you call it mini golf or putt putt, Melbourne has a range of great miniature golf courses for you to tune up your putting skills.
Even younger kids can have fun playing, especially as most systems have a range of imaginative and even quirky scenery throughout.
Check the details before visiting each course as opening hours are frequently seasonal, vary during school holidays, and some mini-golf courses would prefer golfers make a booking.
Here is a round-up of the best mini golf Melbourne has to offer!
