The cold spring waters of the North Atlantic are enough to keep all but the hardiest of shoregoers out of the ocean this time of year. With water temperatures not projected to climb above 70 degrees until mid-June, we’re all looking for ways to keep the family entertained on balmy spring days. Is there a better way to enjoy the sun than with a mini golf competition?

Invented on the Atlantic Coast in a shore town not dissimilar to those in New Jersey, this century-old activity is a great way to show off your skills with friends or keep the family engaged whether or not the water’s warm enough for a swim.

Here’s a look at some of our top places to play mini golf in each South Jersey beach town.

Atlantic City

Open every day from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m., North Beach Mini Golf offers brilliant views of the Atlantic City strip and boardwalk. Located next to Absecon Inlet, Absecon Lighthouse and the city’s finest beaches, this 18-hole course offers themed events like “May the Course Be With You” and jazz or DJ nights.

Avalon

Go Fish Mini Golf

This maritime-themed course features a giant shark, colossal ball-eating grouper, breaching sperm whale and shipwrecked lifeguard boat. Owned by a local elementary school teacher, this kid-friendly 19-hole course is open on weekends and is one the cheaper options for mini golf you’ll find down the Shore.

Cape May

Cape May Miniature Golf

This classic mini golf course is known by locals simply as Octopus Golf from its distinctive logo featured at the top of the page. With brand-new greens installed for the 2024 season, a waterfall feature and an ice cream parlor attached to the shop, Cape May Mini Golf is an easy favorite.

Ocean City

Tee-Time Golf

642 Boardwalk, Ocean City

Since 1977, this family-owned and -operated course has thrilled Ocean City visitors. One of the few wooden mini golf courses left in the country, Tee-Time Golf is an Ocean City institution.

This sub-Saharan African-themed mini golf course is complete with a waterfall feature, bi-plane, palm trees and raging gorilla. Though the course is less gimmicky than others down the Jersey Shore, it is still challenging, with water features that could cost you a stroke if you’re not careful.
