America’s Best & Bizarre Miniature Golf Courses – Mini Putt Putt

I have a confession to make…..

I have never understood the fascination with golf. You wander around a park, whacking a little ball too far for you to even really see where it goes, and then you hop in a little car, drive to the next hole, and do it all over again.

Pretty boring if you ask me.

Unless of course the golf game you are playing is a game Miniature Golf – then it’s down right fun!

Here’s a great summer vacation idea…..take a trip across America and visit America’s Best (and Most Bizarre) Miniature Golf Courses.
