Serene Custard & Golf, a Family Owned Business for Over 60 years!

Originally built in 1959 and owned by the Gorgo family and named for the family’s matriarch Serene, the roadside custard stand has been a Vineland landmark ever since. It is one of the longest-operating businesses in the Vineland area. Under the new ownership of Ari Dendrinos & Philip Martinez, this family-friendly
destination continues to draw in crowds with its delicious frozen treats and popular mini-golf course.

The 18-hole miniature golf course was added in 1996. It is one of the few miniature golf courses in South Jersey that is not located on a boardwalk. It is regarded as one of the most challenging courses in the tri-state area. The course — which includes a walk-thru cave, waterfall, three ponds, and over 500 plants — underwent an upgrade in the Spring of 2022. More improvements are planned, including glow-in-the-dark golfing and a haunted themed golf experience in October, 2024.

Serene has consistently been named one of the top locations for custard in the State. In 2022, we were named the #1 custard stand in the state by NJ.com.

Tens of thousands of guests visit Serene every summer, and many share heart-warming stories of visits here over their lifetime. We have served four generations of locals since our founding in 1959
