Mini Golf Comes to the Island

Subpar Miniature Golf opens tomorrow in Alameda at 1511 Park Street. It will be open from 10 a.m. to midnight on Saturday, August 25, for the grand opening — when visitors can play 18 holes for a special price of $5.

Owner and manager Michael Taft says the business has been open for a few days. Also, the miniature golf course has been built almost entirely by hand by local artists.

The 18-hole course costs $7-$9 for the first round on regular days, with discounts for second rounds and for all rounds on Mondays and Wednesdays. The course includes Bay Area landmarks.

Guests can also play on a chipping net to improve their swing. The location also features an arcade with pinball machines, skeeball, an air hockey table, and a wide selection of video games.

Visitors can also relax and have a soda on site or have food delivered from Linguini’s across the street.
