Although the game of golf has evolved over the years, the most popular clubs during the past century have remained the busted curtain rod and stale baguette. Discover new forms of this ancient sport with today’s Groupon: for $9, you get a round of mini golf for two players at Pelly's Mini Golf in Del Mar (up to an $18 value).
Pelly's Mini Golf reels in golfers of all ages with two 18-hole courses designed around tropical ocean and surf themes. Golf groupies can choose to shoot for the perfect score at Surfin' Safari or Ocean Adventure, which bask in a marriage of merriment next to the Del Mar Golf Center. Beach bums trading boards for putters at Surfin' Safari will find 18 challenging holes marking landmarks such as Hole #3 Waikiki, the birthplace of modern surfing, and Hole #14 Bonzai Pipeline, reputed to be the most dangerous wave in the world, compressed in an unassuming 4.25-inch hole.
A welcome respite after a long day of commuting in the mouth of a orca whale, the Ocean Adventure course is home to nicknamed holes such as “Woke Up Crabby” and “Walk the Plankton,” and features replicas of shark fins, starfish, and a giant orange octopus. This family-friendly mini golf course revolves around two enormous breeching humpback-whale sculptures that provide a memorable photo opportunity for first daters and remorseful whales alike.
In addition to fun-filled mini golf, Pelly's distinguishes itself through its partnerships with eco-friendly organizations such as the Surfrider Foundation, which looks to protect oceans and beaches through conversation and activism.
