Finding an activity the whole family can have fun doing together can sometimes be a challenge, especially living in the desert. While traditional miniature golf courses are a good source of family fun, the Rock N Roll Mini Golf in La Quinta is anything but traditional. For starters, the whole course is indoors, which gets my vote during summertime. The minute you walk in the door it’s obvious why they called it “Rock N Roll” mini golf. Both kids and their parents can dance and sing along to some of their favorite rock songs from the 70’s and 80’s that can be heard throughout the building.

Recently opened in 2014, Rock N Roll Mini Golf challenges players with their 18 hole, air conditioned, neon lit course. Gone are the traditional windmills which are replaced with black light lit guitars and the big red lips on the Rolling Stones album cover. Once players master the mini golf course, they can keep the good times going in the arcade. Parents will be excited to play some good old fashioned pinball while the young ones can play games and win tickets which they can exchange for prizes.

This fun and interactive attraction is not only for families but is great for fieldtrips, fundraisers and corporate functions. There are 3 party rooms suitable for birthday celebrations and special occasions. Make sure you check the website for special offers like two for one Tuesdays. Wednesdays students get half off and Thursdays you get a free drink with every paid round of golf. They are open 6 days a week and closed on Mondays.

Rock N Roll Mini Golf is located at 46-805 Dune Palms Road, La Quinta. To make reservations or to call with questions you reach them at: (442) 400-3572 or E-mail:
