Putt-Putt (or mini-golf) has become such a popular activity for kids across Sydney, we thought it was high time we got our butts (and putts!) into gear and checked out the best venues in Sydney. We know you're going to love these!

Holey Moley

Holey Moley is Sydney’s first putt-putt/mini-golf bar, but don’t let the bar bit put you off! Kids are certainly welcome when accompanied by an adult before 5 pm. The mini-golf course is one of Sydney's most popular due to its funky pop-themed decor to the likes of The Simpsons, Pac Man, and LEGO. Offering 9, 18, and 27-hole courses, Holey Moley caters to all levels of golfing and endurance. Once you've had your fill of putting, head downstairs for a snack at their on-site cafe, or the Caddyshack bar if you're feeling festive. Holey Moley also caters to group functions and children's birthday parties.
