A fun recreational pastime for families, in riverside county, is mini golf. But, most mini golf courses include a whole array of activities, optional of course. They include rides, batting cages, bumper karts, arcades, and a few other activities. In this local area, I have found a couple courses of mini golf to be among the best.
The first location is Scandia, it includes two mini golf courses, set within a theme park, that resides in Ontario, Victorville, and Sacramento, California. It is on the I-15 between the 10-60 freeways. It has a “Scandinavian” theme to the mini-golf course.
Scandia’s hours of operation are:
Monday-Thursday, Sunday 12pm-10pm,
Friday 12pm-12am, Saturday 11am-10pm.
Their contact information:
1155 South Wanamaker Avenue
Ontario, CA 91761-7839
Prices for Unlimited Golf Passes:
JR. VIP (under 54″) $6.95
VIP (54″ and over) $9.95
Even though Scandia is a theme park, their two mini golf courses are a great part of the park. They plant over 12,000 plants and flowers each year, and have rivers, streams, and rushing waters encompassing Scandia.
You can also get group discounts saving 50% for 15 people or more. Prices would be as JR. VIP ($6.95) per person.
I took my son to Scandia, in Ontario, for his birthday not long ago, and had a blast! However, I did also include fun with the theme park. I felt at ease, even though the golf course is located near the freeway. It must have been most assuredly the environment that set my family at ease. I am actually considering taking my son again this year; shhh, it’s a surprise!
The mini golf courses are not the only attractions worth visiting, with picnic tables, batting cages, rides, and go-karts it is a one stop family place to be!

Boomers! Also includes a Cosmo mini golf course, which could bring extra fun and excitement for the family, at the same price! Cosmo golfing is mini golfing that glows with fun! I have also been to this theme park, which includes bumper boats and rock climbing. This place is buzzing with excitement and fun as well as Scandia, which is why I placed it second. They also have an all you can eat buffet at $9.99, which includes chicken, pizza, salad and much, much more.

Mini golf is a fun pastime and can be enjoyed in various areas of the Inland Valley. These are the three best according to my personal experience, of Inland valleys mini golf courses. The best way to know, however, is to get out there and find out for yourself which is best!
