Mini Golf in Marin at McInnis Park
I'd driven by McInnis Park off Smith Ranch Road in San Rafael many times before I realized that—hidden amongst the driving range, nine-hole golf course, clubhouse, and batting cages—there was a miniature golf course there too (it was the a little windmill and castle on the hill that tipped me off). Since then, it's been a favorite place for us to go with the kids for a fun day out.
McInnis Park's miniature golf course is a colorful, 18-hole, artist-designed course with features like a waterfall and windmill. The tiered, lushly landscaped course winds its way up a hill as you play and the views from the top are spectacular. COVID-19 precautions are in place, with limited numbers of golfers admitted at any one time, social distancing, and mandatory masks or other face coverings.
McInnis Park's mini golf course is kept up pretty well, and it looks like they've recently replaced some of the old artist-designed features and are upgrading many of the holes. But as far as we know it's the only miniature golf course in Marin, so if you're looking to play and don't want to schlep all the way up to Scandia in Rohnert Park, this is the place to go!
