Putting Green Minigolf is a course made by the local community, hoping to spread awareness of environmental issues with their solutions.

With holes designed by local artists made from recycled materials, attending this course has the added benefit of helping a local community prosper.
Located by the water on River Street, this outdoor course only allows walk-ins. If you can be there earlier in the day, it’s the most price-efficient option on this list.

Bushwick Country Club
Don’t let the name fool you; this bar is far from an exclusive country club. If you’d prefer mini-golf to be a side activity to a night of drinking in Brooklyn, the ironically named Bushwick Country Club is a homey-feeling bar with a comfortable atmosphere. This spot doesn’t have the most creatively designed course, for sure.
However, the food and drinks easily top the other options on this list. You’ll also get the chance to interact with some locals, getting a better idea of what it means to be from Brooklyn than most other places can give. The club is at 618 Grand Street, one building off from the corner of the block.
Prices:$10 per person
Open from: Monday-Friday, 5 pm-4 am

Open from: Monday-Sunday, 10 am-9 pm
Mini-golf prices: $5 for kids under 12. $10 for everyone 13 and up.

With so many options for mini-golf in Brooklyn available, it can be hard to pick just one! If your time is limited, consider your traveling companions as your guide to choosing the right destination.

In contrast, Pixar Putt and Putting Green Minigolf are fast experiences, perfect for planning more than one activity in a day.
If you’re looking to have a fun night out with friends, taking in the culture of the city, the Bushwick Country Club may be perfect for you! If you prefer a complete mini-golf experience, with a stunning theme and no punches pulled, Shipwrecked’s beautiful decorations, lighting, and atmosphere are hard to beat.
At the end of the day, no matter where you go for mini-golf in Brooklyn, you’re in for a unique experience. Breathe in the culture, take in the city sites, and get that hole in one!
