Family Mini Golf and Picnic 10

Have a game of kid-friendly golf

The Swan Valley has a range of golf options that everyone can play, which means fabulous fun for the whole family!

Supa Golf is set in stunning landscaped grounds and involves a modified form of traditional golf using larger clubs and balls made of softer material. What this means is while the ball travels no further than 100m, the essence of traditional golf remains! Add a putting cup 2.5 times larger than a traditional golf hole and even the little ones will be showing Tiger Woods how it's done.

For the mini golf aficionados there's the beautifully landscaped Vines Mini Golf at the picturesque Vines Resort and a fun course at The Taphouse at Mulberry Estate.
