Adventure Island Mini Golf (Star City)   -   Website


At Adventure Island Mini Golf there are two 18 hole courses. Both of these have been designed and built by Castle Golf of Arizona and provide fun challenges to everyone whether you are an expert golfer or have never held a club before!

Hidden Cove Challenge takes you around the base of our dormant volcano and then past 'Adventure Falls' and on into 'Lost Settlers Cave'. You will briefly escape the cave before having to return to finish your round and take the 19th Challenge, a one shot challenge, which, if you succeed will win you a free round at Adventure Island Mini Golf! The Hidden Cove Challenge also has full disabled access and pushchairs can easily be taken around this course.

Lost Hut Trail starts on a ridge above the Hidden Cove Challenge and winds its way passed towers of rock and through old island villages. It then reaches the highest point of the complex ­ with great views over the entire island towards the volcano in the distance. You will pass through an abandoned Tiki Lodge village before trying to putt off the mountain and enter 'Lost Settlers Cave' for the 19th Challenge, the second one shot challenge at Adventure Island Mini Golf that could mean you win a free round!
