Cape Cod's Best Mini Golf In Sandwich

There are many wonderful adventures to be had near our Sandwich Bed and Breakfast. The historic charm of Sandwich Village is in evidence around every corner, and nowhere more so than at one of the country’s oldest Mini Golf Courses.

The perfect outing on a warm summer night that doesn’t involve sand in every conceivable crevice, mini golf is one of those quintessential Cape Cod traditions. There is nothing quite like a good, old-fashioned game of mini golf followed by an ice cream treat.

Sandwich Mini Golf was the boyhood dream of Maurice Burke who built it in the mid 1900’s, and still maintains this charming little course. It is located on property that was owned by Mr. Burke’s grandparents in the late 1800’s. Maurice dreamed of making the marshland into a quaint, Cape Cod mini golf course. It became his lifelong hobby with many bridges and regionally-themed holes, some of which are named after his grandchildren.

Located right on Route 6A in Sandwich, Sandwich Mini Golf is themed around the Cranberry River. This gently flowing stream has a ship named the Molly Rebekah, a River Raft, and a Cranberry Covered Bridge. The first bridge you putt across will take you to Treasure Island. The second dips down and up onto the Lily Pad. After putting over the water on Sand & Surf, you take the curved sloping bridge to the green. A fourth bridge crosses from Sandwich Lighthouse up a plank to the Olde Docke. Cranberry Covered Bridge is number 5.

Sandwich Mini Golf is open during the spring and summer months from 10:00 am until 9:00 pm except on Sunday, when the hours are from noon until 9:00 pm. Kids two years old and under play for free and must be accompanied by an adult. Those from three to twelve can play 18 holes for $6 and 35 holes for $10. Adults play 18 holes for $7 and 35 holes for $11.

You will find many places to play mini golf on Cape Cod, but none as quaint and charming as Sandwich Mini Golf. Come stay at our Cape Cod Bed and Breakfast and top off a day of exploring the Cape with a little mini golf and then head on over to Ice Cream Sandwich or Twin Acres Ice Cream for an unbelievable ice cream treat. When you make your reservations to stay at the 1750 Inn at Sandwich Center, mention that you read this blog and two tickets for Sandwich Mini Golf are on us.
