A Fun Family Entertainment Business

In the family entertainment business market, there are many opportunities for entrepreneurs but there are not many that are as profitable as miniature golf. Find out how lucrative a mini golf course business is with our mini golf revenue calculator. More than 130 million people play miniature golf every year with an excess of $1 billion annually in industry revenues. From children to senior citizens, miniature golf appeals to players of all ages. What’s more, it’s a fun business to operate.

More Time To Do What You Want

In the northern altitudes, miniature golf is a seasonal business. It will leave you with six months or even more to enjoy family time, to travel wherever you want, to make plans for the next season, or operate another cold-weather business. “In the winter, I spend time skiing with my family and planning my marketing for the following summer,” says Mark Blasko of Chuckster’s in Vestal, N.Y. “I only have to work half the year. Miniature golf is the perfect business!”

Investment, Payback & Profits

The cost of building your course will naturally depend on the size and scope of your project, and the features you choose to make your course unique and attractive. Depending on construction costs and course design, many of our clients recover their initial investment within the first 18 months of operation. Actual results vary from site to site. Through discussing with existing mini golf course owners, the courses with the highest revenue are in good locations, well run, and with a good marketing strategy. Get our investors kit today.

Low Overhead

One of the benefits about running a mini golf course business is the low cost of supplies – balls, scorecards, and putters, and staff overhead (usually one or two young employees to man the day-to-day operation). On top of this, liability insurance for a miniature golf course operation is relatively inexpensive.


Every business needs a powerful marketing plan to guarantee its success, and today’s mini golf operators have to use aggressive tactics for market share. A successful business owner must triumph over the competition. Just being the owner doesn’t guarantee achievement. A well-designed, well-constructed and attractive Harris miniature golf course will support you in your long-term success.

What Our Owners Say?

"The people at Harris were efficient, effective and flexible. I was on site every day during construction and the guys were always asking me for my input. They would take what I suggested and make it happen. They were on time and on budget, which was an absolute delight! Best of all, I’ve made a ton of money in the miniature golf business."
