How to build a miniature golf course


Building a miniature golf course is a fun and rewarding DIY project. If you have the space and the time, you can create your own unique miniature golf course that will be the talk of your neighborhood. Here’s how to do it:

Find a suitable location

It’s important to find a location that is accessible to your target audience. Consider where people who would want to play mini golf are most likely to be located and then look for appropriate venues in that area.

You’ll also need to check with the city’s zoning regulations to ensure that there aren’t any restrictions on building miniature golf courses within your chosen location. Depending on how much space you have available, this could mean having restrictions placed on how high or low your fences must be built or if certain types of signs are allowed (for example, a sign advertising an upcoming event).

When choosing a place for your course, consider its cost as well as whether it has good access to utilities such as water and electricity. Another thing worth considering is safety–you don’t want people getting hurt by tripping over loose gravel while they’re playing!

Find a designer

Miniature golf designers are the people who will turn your ideas into reality. They create the layouts, the holes, and the challenges, they determine how many holes your course will be and how long it will take to play them. A good designer will also be able to give you advice on what kind of equipment is best suited for your course–and can advise on other aspects such as maintenance costs (which we’ll get into later).

You can find designers through various channels: social media groups like Facebook or LinkedIn; online forums where miniature golf enthusiasts share tips and tricks; or by asking family members who might have connections in the business world. Once you’ve found someone who looks promising, make sure that both parties communicate well with each other before signing any contracts!

Choose your theme

Once you have decided on a location, it’s time to choose a theme. The most important thing to keep in mind when choosing a theme is that it must be appropriate for your location and the size of your course. For example, if you live near an amusement park with an existing miniature golf course, then using their existing theme may be the best option for drawing in customers who are already familiar with their brand. However, if you’re starting from scratch or building your own course without any previous experience–and especially if your customers aren’t familiar with miniature golf as an activity–it might be better for them to choose something more exciting and fun than just another generic castle or pirate ship design!

Create a layout with your designer

When you have a designer, they can help you with this. The designer will create a layout of the course and include an overview of it, a list of holes and obstacles, and tee boxes.

Set up tee boxes, holes, obstacles, and greens

  • Trees, bushes, and rocks are a good way of creating obstacles for the golfers.
  • Greens, ramps, and hills can be used to make the holes more challenging.
  • Obstacles such as water features or other features such as windmills can also be added to your miniature golf course design if you want it to be really fun!

Building a miniature golf course is fun and rewarding!

You can build your own miniature golf course in just about any space, whether it’s your backyard or an empty lot. If you’re handy with tools, this project will be easy for you to tackle. You’ll also learn how to use power tools like drills and saws–skills that are useful in many other areas of life as well!

In addition to being fun and educational, building a mini golf course will give you something valuable: profits from people who come out to play on it!


Miniature golf courses are a great way to entertain your family and friends. They can be built in your backyard or even inside your home! The best part about them is that they don’t take up much space, so if you have limited space but still want an outdoor activity for everyone, then this might be the perfect option for you.
