Wimmer Yamada and Caughey was commissioned to create the design theme for San Diego County's newest leisure attraction – Pelly’s Mini Golf. Working hand-in-hand with Del Mar Golf Center, Surfrider Foundation and Steven Birch Aquarium, the 36-hole course was designed to provide both entertainment and education about our oceanic environment and the history of surfing.


  • Surfing Safari course references historically well known surfers, local surfing hot spots and surfing techniques
  • Ocean Adventure course references sea life, ocean water quality, harmful dumping and pollution prevention measures
  • Sea life sculptures, by local artist Gerry Kirk, are located throughout both courses
