Golf N' Stuff Ventura


For hours of amusement check out Golf N' Stuff off the 101 freeway in eastern Ventura, just 20 miles west of Newbury Park. Golf N' Stuff features two 18-hole miniature golf courses, Indy style race cars (go-karts), bumper boats, bumper cars and laser tag (offered at designated time frames) and a large arcade. You must be 4' 8" tall to drive the go-karts and at least 4' tall to drive the bumper boats/cars, so make sure to wear heels if you're really short.

Each activity is priced separately. Mini golf as of March 2019 costs $11.00. You can also purchase a 2 hour unlimited use wristband on weekends for $30.00 (as of March 2019) and try everything. I highly recommend registering in the Golf N Stuff Email Club as they email periodic 2 for 1 mini golf coupons that come in handy. There are also printable coupons on the Golf N Stuff site at


Wow, talk about a fun venue for a kid's birthday party! Prices range from $15 to $38 per person (as of March 2019) for Ameci's pizza, cake, access to the rides, etc.

Mini Golf at Umami Burger Thousand Oaks

Umami Burger at The Lakes at Thousand Oaks opened its doors on May 3, 2012. Previously Umami was Nate N Al Deli, which closed its doors on January 4, 2012. Before that, Sushi Ko resided in the spot from 2005 to August 2009. Yes, sushi, deli and gourmet burgers all in this spot at The Lakes...but one thing that hasn't changed is the little mini-golf area outside of the restaurant! Yeah!!

We stopped by to sample the gourmet Umami burgers (they were pricey but really good) and while awaiting the food, my 6 year old and I entertained ourselves on the green. They have plenty of clubs and mini wiffle balls on hand in the restaurant.

Something to consider when you're out dining with kids who can't sit still...
