Christmas is around the corner, summer is in full swing and it's time to part-tee — in more ways than one.
Our favourite Pixar characters are popping up in Melbourne at a mini golf course inspired by some of our favourite Disney films. After setting up its (temporary) home in Fed Square and St Kilda last summer, the kidult-friendly course is now heading to the Melbourne Museum Western Forecourt from December 20 to February 3.
Designed to challenge both eight-year olds and adults, Pixar Putt features nine- and 18-hole courses that take you past childhood heroes like Buzz Lightyear, Sheriff Woody and Elastigirl. Hit a few balls with Darla and Marlin from Finding Nemo, and flick one past Princess Atta from A Bug's Life. No need for a trip to Disneyland.
So, if you didn't beat your cousin at backyard cricket over the holidays, challenge them to a rematch at the Museum in February. All you need is your hat and A-game (and no pressure if you remain defeated, there's always the nineteenth hole nearby).
Pixar Putt is also open for after-dark sessions every Friday and Saturday night — and they're only for adults. Running from 7–10pm, the post-work putt-putt hours are perfect for those date nights when you want to do more than just have dinner and see a movie.
Pixar Putt has tee-off times every 15 minutes between 10am–8pm, Sunday–Thursday; 10am–10pm, Friday–Saturday. From 7–10pm on Friday and Saturday nights, sessions are for adults only.
