Best Mini Golf Courses In Baltimore

Playing 18 holes of putt-putt golf among giant, sword-wielding pirates, extinct dinosaurs and blue waterfalls is so much more thrilling and less time consuming than a round on a regular course where the hazards are harmless trees, ponds and sand. Miniature golf is also significantly less expensive, so skip hauling around your own clubs — that'd just be weird — and bring your family instead. Baltimore's best mini golf courses promise a great game every time.
