Top 5 Jersey Shore Mini Golf Courses
1. Asbury Eighteen
Asbury Eighteen is one of the best mini golf courses the Jersey Shore has to offer. Located right on the Asbury Park Boardwalk, this oceanfront course is perfect for a casual date night or a fun family outing. You can even cool off at the Splash Park after your game! The boardwalk’s outdoor spray area boasts a variety of water features like an oversized watering can, a giant teacup, and sprinklers that shoot out of the ground. Your kids will have a blast.
To enjoy both the golf course and the Splash Park, take advantage of Asbury Eighteen’s “Splash and Putt” passes. Each includes one round of mini golf and entrance to the Splash Park. Passes are $14 for children, $12 for adults, and $45 for families.
2. Shipwreck Island
Another great mini golf option is Shipwreck Island in Bradley Beach. This course is just a 15-minute walk from our inn and features undulating greens, rock formations, waterfalls, and other modern obstacles. Your family will love taking on each challenge! Shipwreck Island is open every day in the summer from 10 a.m to 11 p.m.
Pro Tip: Keep your eye out for the seventh hole, nicknamed “The Terror of Bradley Beach”. Its water hazard is ready to swallow your shot!
3. 9th Avenue Pier
In addition to food, drinks, and live entertainment, the 9th Ave Pier in Belmar, NJ offers an awesome mini golf course. Enjoy spectacular water and beach views as you make your way from hole to hole. The course is open every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday throughout the summer season.
4. Castaway Cove
Castaway Cove in Point Pleasant Beach is a Jersey Shore favorite. It’s located on Jenkinson’s Boardwalk and features two unique adventures: a Shipwreck Bay course that takes you through caves and waterfalls, and a Crow’s Nest course that offers amazing aerial views. After your game, take a stroll along the boardwalk and enjoy classic arcade games, batting cages, a fun house, and more.
