Scarborough Golf & Mini Golf

There are some great little mini golf and golf courses in and around Scarborough. If you want a game of crazy golf then you will find plenty on the north side of Scarborough.

If you want a full round of golf or you are looking for a driving range, then there are a few close by on the outskirts of Scarborough. I took my five year old to the driving range recently and he loved it.

The crazy golf courses and putting greens are all based near the north side beach. If you walk around Scarborough near to Peasholm Park and the SeaLife Centre you will pass at least six courses.
