Action City – Eau Claire, WI

Welcome to the first entry of our mini-golf blog. The adventure begins with an impromptu stop on our voyage from Chicago back home to Minneapolis.

Par – The design of the course was simplistic: No castles, bridges, moving objects or even sand traps. The terrain was well manicured but lacked personality. It’s the mini-golf equivalent of a suburban home. It’s nice for a little bit but lacks the character and personality of something that you would go out of your way to tell your friends about.

We did love the putter selection and display

We stopped on the way home from a road trip that included a stop in the Wisconsin Dells. We stopped because we didn’t have a chance to play any of the fun looking mini-golfing places we saw from afar in the Dells and needed a fix! We got our fix but felt like Action City could step up their game.

Pros 
Well maintained course
Greens were in stellar shape
Functioning water tower

Cons 
Lack of creativity in the design (see “bridge” photo)
Not much kitsch or fun to the play
Background noise from I-94
