Goodrich Mini Golf – Maplewood, MN


Played September 7, 2015

Reviewed by the Pink Putter

Goodrich Golf Dome is an indoor Driving Range and outdoor Mini Golf course located in the northwestern suburbs of Minneapolis/St. Paul. It was one of the few places left on our quickly shrinking list of mini golf courses to play in the Twin Cities area and so we decided to finally give it a visit on Labor Day 2015, the unofficial last day of summer.


Sandtrap – Based on its scale, game play and general layout, this course appears to have once had a heyday that has since disintegrated. Goodrich displayed intermittent efforts for improvement which were strongly outweighed by blatant neglect. Overgrown weeds, haphazard and broken obstacles and ripped turf are just a few of the negatives we experienced. Unfortunately, the course’s state of disrepair led to a below average mini golf experience.

Balls and Scorecards located inside. While slightly ramshackle, this place still has some old charm in it.

Nerdy Notes:

  • Plastic flag poles in some of the holes
  • 18 holes, no course par
  • Two cups in many of the holes (possible kid’s hole?)
  • Indoor driving range and Pro Shop on premise
  • Rubber-covered putters
