The first known miniature golf course apparently was built in Pinehurst, North Carolina in 1918 by Steamship magnate James Barber, although St. Augustine claims have the oldest still existing golf course in the United States. Who knows and really, who cares!?! The idea is to have fun, get a little exercise and see just how well you can handle all the trick shots required to play the game. There are even National Miniature Golf contests just like the PGA tours. (Well, maybe not just like) So whoever was the first and whoever is the oldest is all great, just get out and have some fun before the weather covers them up with snow!
How to celebrate – Go play Miniature Golf. Make your own miniature golf course in your back yard. (We did and boy does it require a lot of upkeep) Take the family out to have some fun today.
