The Potential Challenges of Putt Putt Golf
Most people don’t consider miniature golf to be challenging. On the other hand there are
avid putt-putt golf participants that travel the United States in search of the next great
challenge. Almost every town has at least one such golf course. There are websites that
deal strictly with miniature golf vacations.
What better way to form a sense of bond with your family than to pack them up and head
off to the nearest putt-putt golf course? Or set your entire family vacation around the idea
of a miniature golf course. Just like with every other family there is a theme to your
family vacations. Now if dad can just admit his inner most desire to see the largest
miniature golf course in America, we can be happily on our way.
Whether you are heading across the state to see the most amazing small golf course or
across town to the local putt-putt course you are bound to find fun. From the largest to the
smallest family member there will be challenges for each one. And normally there are
video arcades or large ponds with giant goldfish to feed when you are finished. Don’t
forget the ice cream parlor on the way home.

you make your way through difficult miniature golf holes. Keeping score is always a fun
thing with real golf and miniature golf should be no different. The secret is to make the
most honest person in the group scorekeeper.
So the next time you are stumped for something fun to do on a Saturday night or if you
are trying to decide on the best party place for your eight-year-old son and six of his
