9 Super Fun Places To Play Putt Putt In Omaha

I have a love-hate relationship with putt putt golf. My kids love it, so I put up with it. The Omaha area has several miniature golf venues with creative courses – think pirates, dinosaurs and castles – so even if you’re an impatient player (like me), you’ll probably enjoy the view while you play. Read on for all the Omaha area putt putt golf places, including those in nearby towns of Elkhorn and Council Bluffs.

Indoor places to play miniature golf in Omaha

Here are all the indoor putt putt golf courses in Omaha and nearby cities. Note that some of these are just putt putt golf centers and others are within larger entertainment facilities. This list was also included in the post about 30+ fun things to do in the winter in Omaha.

A video game themed hole at The Fat Putter has Donkey Kong barrels, and a Super Mario Bros. background and figures.

The Fat Putter

Vala’s Pumpkin Patch

Where: 12102 S. 180th St., Gretna, Neb.

Note: Open seasonally, even though it’s indoors.

Why it’s unique: This is the only putt putt course on this list located in a pumpkin patch – and it’s the biggest pumpkin patch around. Called “Graveyard Golf,” you’ll be putting around in a dark room with glow-in-the-dark obstacles.

Outdoor mini golf in Omaha

These places are going to be open seasonally. Because, who wants to putt in the snow, right? Call ahead to see if they’re open.

Why it’s unique: Boulder Creek’s two 18-hole courses are called the Adventure Course and the Sport Course.

Fun Plex

Where: 7003 Q St., Omaha

Why it’s unique: The 18-hole mini golf course at Fun Plex is probably the last thing you’ll want to do at the 16-acre park. However, if you’re looking for something low-key to do between rides, this would be a good option.

Papio Fun Park

Where: 210 E Lincoln St., Papillion, Neb.

Why it’s unique: The 18-hole course at Papio Fun Park is themed off of U.S. landmarks.

I built three franchised Putt- Putt Golf ( TRADEMARK ) locations in Omaha & Bellevue- 9 -18 hole courses. 1968- 9216 Maple still exists under name - Putting Plus, thats 52 years old, Another at 9112 west center road, the third Hwy 370 & Wilshire - Bellevue. Latter two are no more. Great memories of birthdays, dates, group functions- we had fun & so did the customers at a reasonable price & clean environment for all ages to enjoy- even had a PPA TV show on all summer, Sundays 1 pm

Thank you for building those courses. Great memories. REAL PUTT-PUTT doesn't have windmills... :-) I played for many years at the PUTT PUTT in Hazelwood, MO. Just typing PUTT PUTT reminded me of hole number 5 on course 2. It was a straight hole, but the steel PUTT PUTT letters needed to be navigated.
