The newly opened Wembley mini golf course is very impressive. The beautifully landscaped miniature golf course is the first of its kind in Western Australia, as it represents a scaled-down version of a full-size golf course. The 18 hole course takes into account the tee and hole placement, as well as including mini sand bunkers and water hazards.
We do love a fun family game of mini golf! We paid at the golf shop and each of us received a golf club, differently coloured golf balls and a score sheet. The course has been designed for both adults and children to enjoy. Wembley Golf Course recommends that the mini golf is most suitable for children aged six years.
Everybody tees off from the same point, but depending on your ability, there’s a choice of starter (red), intermediate (Blue) or advanced (black) holes. Little Chef and I decided we’d try the blue holes and golf nut Chef chose to aim for the black holes.
Each hole has its own individual challenges – sand traps, hills, bridges, tunnels and water features.
Hole #6 was a big hit with Little Chef. It’s set out like an AFL ground, where you “score a goal” with the golf ball.
There’s a stream running through the area, where I lost my ball a couple of times! Be mindful of the water if you have small children with you too. Hole #13 you are supposed to get the ball into the water… the stream carries your golf ball closer to the flag. The course is very well done and challenging for all skill levels.
Chef really enjoyed it and was stoked that he got TWO holes in one! SO it was no surprise that he won overall. Little Chef and I tied for second. When you’ve finished your game there’s a winner’s podium, just to make it a little more competitive! We had loads of fun and will definitely go back there again for a rematch.
Unlike traditional golf, there’s no strict dress code, though everyone must have footwear on at all times and you cannot wear high heels on the greens. There are vending machines and a kiosk for refreshments and toilets nearby. There’s not a lot of shade, so remember to slip, slop, slap!
There is a pavilion area, available for hire, making Wembley Mini golf a good idea for kids birthday parties too.
Next to the mini-golf course is an excellent new playground. It has a tube slide, climbing frame and more fun equipment. You can enjoy a bite to eat after your game at 300 Acres Restaurant and Bar.
The mini golf is open seven days, from 9am to 9pm. By night the course is floodlit and last tee off time is at 7:45pm.
Family Rate (two adults, two children/student/concessions) $59
