Who has the best Mini Golf and Go Karts in St. Louis?
Summer break is in full swing, and if your youngsters are in the mood to practice theirs, it’s time to head to one of St. Louis’ mini golf courses.
From indoor mini golf to outdoor, the city has something for everybody. Golfers can play a round in everything from traditional, old-fashioned putt-putt courses to futuristic, sci-fi themed monster golf courses.
Here’s a look at some of St. Louis’ best mini golf, and in case the kiddos want to give their putters a rest, we included the best go karting in town too.
Swing-A-Round Family Fun Center
For families looking for top-notch golfing and go-karts in the same place, Swing-A-Round has it. Its Fenton location features three traditional nine-hole courses with bright blue water fountains, castles and waterwheels. The course in St. Charles offers 18 holes.
Both locations also feature go-karts, batting cages, bumper boats, and arcades.
Concord Bowl / Arizona Action Park
This desert-themed course takes golfers way out west. The painted Native Americans, animal statues, and an open-mouthed snake hole add excitement to all 18 holes, and the course’s waterfall will make it an experience to remember.
Arizona Action Park also has bowling lanes, sand volleyball courts, and batting cages.
Go Karts: Pole Position Raceway
Cool off indoors and feel the breeze as you race around a track that’s a blast for beginners and just tricky enough for seasoned racers. Pole Position boasts full speed, 45-mph karts with crisp, precise steering.
Drop-in racers are welcome, and the facility can be rented for birthday parties and corporate events.
Go Karts: Boschertown Grand Prix Racing
Boschertown is a great spot for family outings. The track, which has been around in St. Charles since 1957, features four different types of karts, including go-karts that can fit kids as young as 10.
Expect a more leisurely ride here. The track’s “Super Karts” top out at 28 mph.
