It’s the coolest mini golf hole in the world – “The Pendulum” – you must time it perfectly or the giant pendulum will knock your ball away from the hole it was destined to go in because of your mini-golf skills!

It’s found at Golfland in San Jose on Blossom Hill Rd. That location, Sunnyvale, and their awesome Milpitas Golfland will reopen from the Coronavirus lockdown on 5/4/2020.

They will be spreading out the players and accepting reservations for tee times.

Golfland Milpitas, San Jose, and Sunnyvale will be open for mini-golf ONLY from 10am-9pm, starting 5/4/2020.

Castro Valley Golfland opened 5/1/2020 for mini-golf only from 10am-9pm

Here’s how they’re implementing social distancing:

1. Enter from the side gate.

2. Groups will be spread out among 3 courses and/or given a tee time.

3. Reserve your tee time online (to prevent crowding).

4. Cups on putting greens have been changed so that you can get your ball out without the need to touch any surface.

I’m born and raised in San Jose, and my kids and I have played many times at the Golfland on Blossom Hill Rd. in San Jose, and Golfland Milpitas. We love ’em both – for my kids – the edge goes to the Milpitas Golfland.

Be safe!
