Get ready to kick some serious putt at Pixar Putt, a Disney Pixar animation themed pop up mini-golf course in Frankston. It's open for a limited season from Friday 16 December 2022 until Sunday 29 January 2023.
Mini golf is a great activity for the school holidays as it caters for most age groups and abilities. There are shorter golf club putters for younger kids and sometimes whether you score a hole-in-one has nothing to do with skill and everything to do with luck!
Pixar Putt adds an extra element of fun into putt-putt golf because you can work your way around 9 or 18 Pixar-themed holes.
You will have fun playing ‘guess that movie' as the kids recognise characters and sets from Toy Story, The Incredibles, Finding Nemo, A Bug’s Life, Ratatouille, Monsters Inc., Wall-E, Inside Out, The Good Dinosaur and more.
The course has a good mix of easy and challenging holes.

Conquer the flying house in Up, where you get to winch your balls up in the air and have them all fall down the waterfall…
.….the challenging kitchen set up from Ratatouille, shooting the ball through the target from Brave, and using the ball to ‘play' the guitar strings from Coco.
It takes about 80-90 minutes for all to complete all 18 holes. In retrospect that was probably too long for the kids' enthusiasm levels and attention spans as there are four of us playing and some waiting around for the people in front of us to finish. Next time we'll just go for 9 holes and manage expectations about why we miss out on some of the course.
You will need to pre-book Pixar Putt tickets, and a family ticket (2A + 2C) costs $79.90 for 9 holes, or $119.90 for 18 holes.
