6. Pillow’s Funtrackers, Ruidoso, NM

Family fun for more than 25 years in this mountain resort town has to happen seasonally due to weather. But when the weather is good, this outdoor fun center is the place to be. The hike around the 18-hole course has its ups-and-downs … you are in the mountains … but the game pace is moderate enough to manage the hills. There are man-made water hazards to get across and long holes filled with non-traditional putting lines. Open from Memorial Day to Labor Day, seven-days-a-week.

7. Black Mountain Lodge and Playhouse, Taos, NM

This one-time dance hall built in 1935 has been transformed into a family fun center, that’s also a lodge. It snows here in winter, so you’ll find both an indoor putt-putt golf course in this 15,000-square-foot playhouse and an outdoor one. Make memories on snowy evenings knocking a ball along the hardwood floors and around the cedar posts. It’s a new take on the game! The fun also includes skating, arcade games, pool tables and air hockey.

8. GlowGolf, Albuquerque, NM

This is a franchise that pops up in malls across the country. This particular mini-golf spot is in the Cottonwood Mall, north of the downtown section of the city. It’s a fun and relaxing way to take a break from the outdoor activities found throughout the region. You’ll find the same black light set-up that makes the glow sticks, glow walls, glow floors, glow balls and glow putters shine.
