Explore, Play & Learn Near Your Del Mar Home
Looking for a fun way to spend some time with your kids or neighbors who live in Del Mar? Visit Pelly’s Mini Golf at the Del Mar Fairgrounds! You can share fascinating facts about the ocean as you play through both of the 18-hole mini golf courses, named Pelly’s Ocean Adventure and Pelly’s Surfin’ Safari without traveling far from your Del Mar home. These courses were designed with the Surfrider Foundation and Birch Aquarium at Scripps and feature life-like marine animals and the holes are named after local surf breaks. You’ll find signs spread throughout the courses that will teach you about various forms of marine life, the history of surfing and even conservation and recycling facts.
The courses contain twenty unique, life-like sculptures of octopi, sea lions, sharks and California gray whales, sculpted by San Diego artist Gerry Kirk. Mini-golf courses are open Sundays through Thursdays, from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. and stay open one hour later on Fridays and Saturdays. Admission is $9 for adults and $7 for children under twelve (additional games are $4 and $3 respectively).
