Putting perfection What are the best mini golf courses in Auckland

It’s time to put(t) aside your sophisticated city persona. Sure, rooftop cocktail bars and art galleries are nice, but sometimes you just need to channel your inner child and embrace the ridiculous fun of mini golf.

Lucky for you, Auckland has a treasure trove of awesome courses. For today, let’s ditch the serious sports and discover the best mini-golf spots the city has to offer!
