Halloween Minigolf

A look at Halloween-themed miniature golf courses and events in 2020.

I'm a big fan of Halloween and always looking out for themed events and activities in the run-up to the scary season. It'll certainly be an interesting one this year for sure!

Haunted Mini-Golf

Hidden Oaks Family Fun Center in East Liverpool, Ohio, USA is running The Hidden Haunted Trail & Mini-Golf this year, with the Haunted Mini-Golf teeing-off today (Friday 11th September).


If you know of any Halloween-themed minigolf courses or events please get in touch via the comments below.

Check out my other Halloween-related blog posts.


Last year our friends Tom and Robin over at A Couple of Putts shared their favourite scary miniature golf holes and obstacles on social media during October using the hashtag #Puttober.

Our friend Pat at The Putting Penguin is also a big fan of Halloween and themed minigolf.

Scary minigolf from our travels

We've seen some nice haunted obstacles and theming on course on our travels.

It was a different time last year and there were some excellent Halloween events taking place.

Halloween minigolf
Are you playing any Halloween minigolf this year?

In October 2014 we headed to Mead Open Farm for a morning of fun on the farm. And some Crazy Golf! The course was the 350th we've played on our Crazy World of Minigolf Tour and the 584th visited overall.
