18th Hole.

Novelty Golf and Games

A unique mini-golf with two 18-hole courses. Some holes have a foot pedal you stand on when you putt to make the hazards move (windmills, a drawbridge, bowling pins). Very entertaining for kids, and fun for adults too.

Novelty Golf and Bunny Hutch

Novelty Golf is the perfect date night adventure. Play a couple of rounds (they have two courses), then finish up with some batting cages (baseball and softball), a few video games and a little something to nosh you can take pics with a plethora of fiberglass goodies like the snazzy bunny in front of the Bunny Hutch. Have been loving on this place since the '80s!

Novelty Golf

Built in 1949, this is my favorite mini golf Course in the country! While vintage, it does maintain the grounds, has a cool vintage arcadem and next door is The Bunny Hutch Restaurant, which serves some fab banana splits and cones! Its original vintage and escaped any ugly updates over the years, thankfully! They are in Lincolnwood, which is basically the north Side of Chicago, and while has a parking lot, is accessible by bus! Safe neighborhood!

Dinosaur hazard at Novely Mini Golf.

Novelty Golf and Bunny Hutch

If you are driving through Chicago and looking for something quirky and timeless, try Novelty Golf. This summer the photo booth was even working and the next door restaurant, The Bunny Hutch, was under new ownership (try the Vienna hot dogs and the bacon cheeseburgers).

There's nothing modern about this Novelty Golf, which makes it so appealing and gives it so much character. A lot of the holes require a pedal to be pushed to move doors and raise and lower bridges. Plus the landscaping is beautiful in the summer. We've been going here for over a year now, several times a summer, and Novelty Golf never disappoints.

Fiberglass chicken at Novelty Golf.

Novelty Golf and Bunny Hutch

There is a miniature golf course on Devon and Lincoln Ave's in Chicago, that sports a huge chicken, a big Frankenstein head, a small Statue of Liberty, among other weird fiberglass thingies. But the best part is that even though now it is called Novelty Golf, in the 70s it was called 'The Bunny Hutch' and it still says 'the bunny hutch' on the side of the video entertainment room.
