Frequently Asked Questions about out Mini Golf Birthday Party Venue
Are the Party areas under cover?
All our party areas are fully weather protected. Our party spaces are quite large, generally there will be space for the kids as well as any parents and relatives who might like to come along.
When do I have to confirm final numbers?
When you make your booking, we will ask that you provide an estimate of the number of children attending. We will require a firm number no later than four days prior to the party as food orders need to be arranged.
What happens if it rains on the day of the party?
If there is only light or intermittent rain the mini golf will be open and play can continue. Guests should dress appropriately for the weather conditions. We also have raincoats for the children to wear if they require one. If there is heavy rain, the children can use the driving range which is undercover.
When do I pay for the party?
A $100 deposit is payable at the time of booking to secure your date and time. This deposit comes off the total party price and is non-refundable if you cancel or move your party less than 2 weeks prior to your booking. The balance is payable immediately upon completion of the party once final costs have been confirmed with you. If you have parents of children staying for the party we are happy to open a tab for you and provide them with food and drinks from the Bunker café. Some may even want to browse our retail golf shop, next to the cafe.
What is the format of the party and how long is it?
Ideally you should arrive at least 10 minutes before the party commences to ensure the set up is correct and confirm any specific arrangements with our staff. Please note, access to the room is only available 15 minutes prior to the start of the party to allow for smooth transition between party bookings. Once everyone arrives, kids will drop the presents into the party room then head straight out to play mini golf; a short introductory lesson on putting and an outline of the rules of mini golf will be given before the children start play. The kids will then return to the designated party area for food and cake before returning back to the mini golf courses for a further 18 holes. Each mini golf course typically takes around 30 minutes to complete. For the remainder of time, children can hang out and munch on snacks as parents arrive to collect their children. We do ask that you vacate the party area by the designated time so that our staff can clean the room in preparation for the next party booked. The party runs for a total of 2 hours; unfortunately we are unable to extend this time-frame unless arranged well in advance.
Are there any supervision requirements?
Parents are required to provide adequate supervision at all times. Children under the age of 10 will require an adult supervising each group of 4 children. If parents are not be available to supervise the children, please ensure you make arrangements with us to have one of our staff members present while the children are playing. An additional cost of $40 will be payable for this service.
To ensure their safety and the safety of others, kids are not permitted to run around the venue at any time.
Do supervising parents have to pay?
If the supervising adult is not playing Mini Golf there is no need for them to pay.
Can I bring extra things to the party?
Feel free to bring any additional food, or party accessories including the birthday cake & lolly bags and don’t forget the candles! We can provide a cake if required but this needs to be ordered in advance. If you would like us to store an ice-cream cake (standard size) in our fridge on the day, please give us some notice in advance so that we can clear a space in our freezer. Unfortunately, for health and OHS reasons, we are not able to heat any food or provide you with access to any kitchen facilities.
Is a Mini Golf party suitable for all ages?
Mini Golf is a great activity for people of all ages and skill levels, from young children to grand parents. Our course designs ensure a minimal number of steps making them very easy to navigate.
Are there any optional extras I should know about?
We can provide a party host for up to one hour who will provide an introductory lesson before heading out to play, provide basic supervision out on the mini golf course/s or driving range and ensure everyone is having a fabulous time. Please discuss this or other options with our staff at the time of the booking. Please note, we will require at least two weeks notice to book in hosts for the party.
Some of the children did not show up to the party. Do I still need to pay form them?
Yes. We will require you to confirm final numbers prior to the party. Based on this final number, we need to ensure we cater enough food, drinks and staff for the day. If your confirmed numbers change, please let us know as soon as possible; we will accept changes up to 9am on the morning of your party.
