2023 Best of Lake Erie: Mini Golf

Putt-putt in paradise with two 18-hole courses that sit feet from the water and create a spectacular backdrop for an afternoon of fun.

Oliver’s Bayfront
Erie, Pennsylvania

Year Opened: 2023 

The Vibe: This sunny course, which offers an education on the Battle of Lake Erie, overlooks Presque Isle Bay and is right next to the also-new Oliver’s Beer Garden.

Lakeside Chautauqua
Lakeside, Ohio

Year Opened: 1963

The Vibe: With wide views of the lake, this always shady course is in the 150-year-old Lakeside Chautauqua and, while it’s a dry community, there are plenty of places to get ice cream.
