Polynesian Putter


Polynesian Putter is located in the City of St. Pete Beach in Pinellas County. The miniature golf course was built in 1967 by John McConnell and his wife. In the early 1970s, Richard and Renate Ostrovskis purchased the Polynesian Putter and the adjacent Sea Palms motel. The miniature golf course and motel are still owned by the Ostrovskis family today.


Polynesian Putter is an old style 18-hole miniature golf course along the Gulf-facing beach strip in St. Pete Beach. This course has retained almost all of its historical holes and contains various jungle and tropical hazards but the most distinctive features are the large Tiki head and snake!

Local Knowledge
