Recently I started going to the Clube de Mini Golfe do Porto on a regular basis and I must confess that it quickly became one of my favourite ways of spending an afternoon. While it’s not the best activity for rainy days (and like some wise man said, Winter is Coming), I take what I can get.
It has 2 different courses, so you have 36 holes in total to explore. Nevertheless, even if you want to play them both, you have to pay them before each match. They are both simple but challenging courses. However, don’t expect crazy holes like at a lot of American mini golf courses. As far as prices go, kids that are younger than 13 years old pay € 1.50 per course and after that age, you pay € 2. It’s an affordable way to keep everybody entertained.
What I like about this place is that it’s a funny and relaxing way of spending time with family or friends near one of my favourite parts of Porto: Foz. The Club is inside a small park called Jardim do Passeio Alegre where you can see the Atlantic Sea and the River Douro meet. It’s a beautiful place. This park is also one of the favourite spots of the Pokémon Go players of Porto, so there are always a lot of people around during the day and also at night. Keep that in mind if you’re playing and you see a lot of people running towards something… there’s probably a Pokémon nearby.
