100 Things To Do on St. Croix #64 - Treat the kids to minature golf, St. Croix, USVISt. Croix offers a seemly endless series of water-based activities to do with the family, but what if you want to stay dry? Then treat the kids to a round of miniature golf! The Links at Divi Carina Bay Resort offers a full 18-hole miniature golf course that will provide hours of entertainment for you and your entire family. Even better, this family-friendly activity is easy on your budget. 

Whether you are a kid by age, or just a kid at heart, the beauty of mini-golf is that it is a fun activity for everyone. Since mini-golf generally requires non-traditional putting and includes obstacles such as tubes, ramps, and concrete forms, it seems to offer a more level playing field for all ages. Plus, mini-golf provides the opportunity to challenge yourself (and others) in a game that requires skill and finesse, while still being fun and engaging for both adults and kids.

Miniature golf at The Links at Divi Carina Bay Resort is fun for all ages!

In addition to just being fun, there are actually benefits for you and your kids to playing mini-golf. First off, it strengthens hand-eye coordination and balance. If you’ve ever played golf, you know that making contact with that tiny ball is not as easy at looks. You need a good stance, a gentle touch, patience and practice...all of which are great skills to instill in children (and adults for that matter).  Secondly, mini-golf courses are created to continuously challenge each player, which fosters creativity and problem-solving skills. Every hole is designed with a different obstacle to encourage players to find a creative way to get their ball in the hole. Third, and most importantly, it is a great way to spend quality time catching up and socializing with your family in a relaxed setting.

If you have never taken your kids to play mini-golf, St. Croix is a great place to start! With the Caribbean Sea in the background, and the cool, tropical breeze, The Links is a scenic setting for a fun day in the sun at the course. Or, if it has just been awhile since you played mini-golf, take your family or invite some friends to join you for game. Talk, cheer each other on, and enjoy some quality time together, along with some laughs. In fact, for these reasons mini-golf is a fun and unique option for birthday parties, family reunions and as a destination wedding activity.

The Links is currently open Wednesday-Sunday from 5:00pm until 9:00pm, and the cost is $8 per adult and $6 per child. For the most up-to-date hours and information, please contact the Divi Carina Bay Resort at (340) 773-9700.
