Premier 18 Hole Mini Golf Course for the North Shore

Mini Golf Course at Nunan's, Georgetown

Have you been to Nunan’s lately? Last year, we proudly opened Kallie’s Kones, a full-service ice cream parlor, and Garden Golf, a premier 18-hole, beautifully landscaped mini golf course. Our General Manager and Co-Owner Stephen Flynn, Jr. came up with the idea of building a miniature golf course to our property after seeing a rise in agritourism—a term that simply means an activity or attraction that brings visitors to a farm. Wanting to venture away from corn mazes, Stephen began planning for a miniature golf course. Construction began shortly after, and on July 29, 2016, Nunan’s Garden Golf celebrated its grand opening with a weekend of miniature golf, hot dogs, and ice cream!

Nunan’s Garden Golf is in the quaint town of Georgetown, MA, surrounded by our growing greenhouses,and a full-scale garden center, flower shop, and landscape company set on our 22+ acre lot. It’s not your run-of-the-mill mini golf course, as Garden Golf boasts no windmills or dinosaurs. Instead, our 18-hole course is set amongst a beautiful botanical garden that has some of the most alluring and unique annuals, perennials, shrubs, and trees that grow in the northeast. The course takes you over bridges, through water hazards, by an 18’ waterfall and many other obstacles that make it a fun and challenging experience for the entire family! Throughout the garden, each plant has an identification label and our scorecards are designed with a “Plant Wish List” on the back of it so that you can write down what you like. After your game of golf, you can walk through our beautiful blooming front displays to our ice cream parlor and enjoy a Richardson’s ice cream as you shop for the plants on your wish list.

Now, Nunan’s Garden Golf has opened its doors to new opportunities within the community by offering a number of different programs, including youth programs and field trips, private events such as birthday parties, fundraisers, and corporate events. Garden Golf and Kallie’s Kones have already hosted a number of birthday parties and they’re a huge hit!

Hosting a corporate event for your business? Try something new and host a mini golf tournament for your employees. Many companies have standard golf tournaments, but the problem with that is not everyone plays golf and it takes an entire day. Mini golf is comparatively shorter, sweeter, and easier to play! With a Nunan’s Garden Golf corporate event, you can bring everyone together for a fun-filled day. Mini golf is a great outing activity for your employees—it helps improve communication amongst coworkers, helps employees get to know each other better, celebrate company achievements, show appreciation, energize your team, and boost morale. At Nunan’s, you can rent the entire area to play mini golf, bring in food or have it delivered, play music, or host family games, company awards, and presentations.

Nunan’s has a rich history of family, top notch customer care and service to the community.  Albert D. Nunan started Nunan Florist & Greenhouses as a florist shop in Saugus, MA, in 1917. After a long and successful career, Albert passed the business to his son Ken. In 1985, Ken sold the company to Steve Flynn and Bill Guerrini. Respectfully, they decided to keep the name of the business. Over the last 30 years, Steve and Bill have grown Nunan’s into the diversified, family-oriented business it is today. Steve continues to oversee Nunan’s business operations, and, though Bill is now semi-retired, he continues to help in the greenhouses on a part-time basis.

Family ties are strong at Nunan’s. Steve’s son Stephen, Jr. is the Owner/General Manager, his sister Maryanne is the Office Manager, his sister Maureen is the Garden Center Manager, his wife Christine is an office staff member, and his son Brody is a full-time employee. 

Over the last 30 years, Steve and Bill have grown Nunan’s into the diversified, family oriented business it is today. From its small roots as a florist shop, they have added services and offerings year after year including a vibrant nursery, landscaping services and plant rentals. In 2016 they opened an extraordinary 18 hole Garden Golf Course and an ice cream shop named after their grandchild – “Kallie’s Kones” proudly serves premium Richardsons ice cream.

If you haven’t experienced Nunan Florist and Greenhouses this is your excuse to explore this amazing garden center while enjoying the Nunan’s 100 Years Celebration.  A trip to Nunan’s is more than a shopping excursion. It is a fun afternoon activity! You are certain to be impressed with the knowledgeable and friendly service and understand why Nunan’s has been able to achieve this wonderful accomplishment of 100 Years in business.
