Pelly's Mini-Golf

Have fun while learning about the ocean as you play Pelly's Ocean Adventure and Pelly's Surfin' Safari, two 18-hole mini golf courses featuring life-like marine animals and holes themed after local surf breaks. The courses were designed in cooperation with the Surfrider Foundation and Birch Aquarium at Scripps to not only entertain, but also educate participants about one of our most precious resources, the ocean. Multiple signs spread throughout the courses educate golfers on the various forms of marine life depicted throughout the course, the history of surfing and numerous conservation and recycling facts.

Pelly's Ocean Adventure course features unique, life-like sculptures of sea animals such as an octopus, sea lions, sharks and California gray whales, which were created by local artisan Gerry Kirk. It took him nearly a year to design the 20 animal sculptures.

Pelly's Surfin' Safari begins with the birthplace of surfing, Hawaii, and progresses to local San Diego surf breaks.

Pelly's Mini Golf also is open for birthday parties, company team-building opportunities, groups (with group discounts) and many other events.

  • We played here about three years ago and it was a little tired however on a return visit it has been spruced up and we all really enjoyed the course we played. Will definitely return when we are back....  more »
  • We visited the course on Sunday around midday. The greens (or blues as they are blue) were well designed and in good condition - except the last hole which was a little frustrating. It was hot, and...  more »
  • This is a great driving range and golf center conveniently located just off the 5 freeway and Via de la Valle. Del Mar Golf Center has tons of parking, a pro shop, and miniature golf course. The driving range has three areas to hit from; turf, mat, and an area that can be reserved with shade and Golf instructors are available. Two areas to chip, and a large putting green. For 150 range balls the charge is $17.00 (largest bucket). Great place to stop in.
  • Sad to say, awful customer service. We paid for mini-golf around 8:30 pm when the place closed at 9 pm, however, the service associate gladly took our money but failed to mention they would shut the lights off and leave us in the dark... All 6 players were within striking range, a few more holes to go, and they shut off all electricity... and it was my best friend’s birthday. (Which the service associate was well aware of) It would have been courteous to allow us to finish the game or tell us at the front desk that park will shut off all electricity at 9 sharp. I will not be back.
