What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“There is still a lot we would like to add to MiniGolf Maker, and we want to get the community involved in shaping the game. We also want to ensure the game is well polished, fully featured, and bug-free before making a full release.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We would like to shoot for not much more than a year in Early Access. Ideally we want our stay in Early Access to be as short as possible.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“There are several major things on our to-do list that we would like to have done before a full release, such as:
  • Multiple Game Modes
  • Additional Course Creator Content
  • Course Creator "Behaviors" and/or "Events" System
  • Modding Support
  • General Polish and Bug Fixes

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The current version of MiniGolf Maker is fully functional, but is somewhat limited in features and may contain bugs and other issues that have yet to be discovered. You can refer to the About This Game section for a detailed list of currently available features and content. This will be updated as more features and content are added.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“We plan to increase the price once the game leaves Early Access.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We want to involve the community as much as possible in the development process. This includes things like asking players what features they would like to see, suggestions for new content to be added to the Course Creator, things about the game they don't like, and so on. We will be actively using the Steam Discussion boards, and of course one-on-one communication will be available by email at

MiniGolf Maker August Update

Hi everyone!

The August monthly update is here, and I've got a lot of stuff to share!

Desert Adventure
Desert-themed content is now available in the Course Creator! This includes new objects: Old desert town building sets, ruins, palm trees, and rocks, as well as new music, terrain grounds, skies, and wall styles.

To showcase the Desert content I have made a full 18-hole course, Desert Adventure, which comes standard with the game. You can check out a preview of the course on our YouTube channel:

Mac and Linux Support
MiniGolf Maker now supports Mac and Linux! Not much more to say other than that, but of course if any Mac or Linux users experience problems, please don't hesitate to make a post in the Problem Reports Forum or email me directly at

Coming Soon
Standard Course Overhaul
It's undeniable that the courses that come standard with MiniGolf Maker have been very underwhelming. With only 2 or 3 holes each, I have seen many complaints about the lack of holes available out-of-the-box to play.

So, I have decided that starting now, every update (unless the update has new content with a new course) I will be overhauling one of the existing standard courses (Pirate, Medieval, Winter, Polyworld, and Dreamscape).

September Update
Finally, before we get to the change log, here's what I have planned for the September update:
  • Behaviors and Events Phase 3 - Mainly improvements to the Events portion of the system.
  • Course Atmosphere - Such as the ability to add ambient sound effects to your course.
  • Green Materials - Ability to change the material of greens to materials such as Sand.
  • New Power-Ups - These are a secret...

Changelog - 2019.8.0
  • Added Desert content, including new objects, music, wall styles, and terrain grounds
  • Added 5 new skies
  • Improved look of existing terrain grounds
  • Behaviors can now be nested (i.e. Objects in groups that have behaviors can now also have behaviors)
  • New Behavior - Visibility
  • New Behavior - Move to Position
  • New Behavior - Move to Rotation
  • New Behavior - Freeze Rotation
  • Added Smooth option and movement direction indicators to the Path behavior
  • Added icons that show objects with behaviors
  • Increased selected hole limit from 9 to 18
  • Course banner image selection now uses an in-game file browser
Bug Fixes
  • Fixed stroke counter breaking with 3-digit scores
  • Fixed walls not extending all the way down on uneven terrain
  • Fixed flag being groupable
  • Fixed issues when the flag green piece is added to a group
  • Fixed various issues with the Keep Straight setting on edges
  • Fixed various issues with the Snap to Surface setting
  • Fixed some inside wall textures being incorrect during play
  • Fixed pipe link properties not loading correctly
  • Fixed "Built-In" (now "Standard") courses showing as "Workshop" in Whole Course selection
  • Fixed group object not being selectable when hidden behind other objects

About This Game

Build the miniature golf course of your dreams in MiniGolf Maker

  • Behaviors and Events system for creating dynamic courses.
  • Detailed control of the style of your course.

Use power-ups to give yourself an edge or get in the way of your friends:
  • Fire – Leaves behind a trail of fire, launching any ball that touches it into the air.
  • Ice – Leaves behind a trail of ice that causes any ball that rolls over it to slip and slide uncontrollably.
  • Bomb– Explodes after a short delay, flinging away any nearby objects.
  • Weight – Makes your ball super heavy, making it immune to fire, ice, and blast effects.
  • Jump – Catapults your ball into the air when used.
  • Brake – Slows your ball down very quickly when used.
  • Rocket – Propels your ball forward for a short time.
  • Black Hole– Sucks in nearby golf balls to their doom.
