Played by the Pink Putter back in June 2010 (I thought I’d review this one in retrospect, only because it’s a goodie!)

Hole-in-one: This course is top notch- if you can get there. Giggle Ridge Adventure Golf was designed and constructed by Dan Sawatzky over at The Imagination Corporation. Dan took us out to play this course during his Sign Magic Workshop that I attended. He showed off his techniques and reinforced the idea of telling a story through a themed environment. This course tells the story of the Giggle Ridge mining company and the detail and props at each hole successfully add to the narrative. Plus a fun play!

Even the Snack Bar is themed!

Beautiful detail work. All sculpted cement.

The train adds to the mining theme.

Even the hole numbers were perfectly themed.

The 18th hole.

I got a hole in one on this one, but unfortunately never got to go back to use my free game.

Pros
Unique story
Well designed
Fantastically constructed.
Clean
Challenging
Quirky and fun.

Cons
A bit far away for regular play (you need a plane ticket, a passport and a car to get here from the midwest).
On the pricer side

Cost: $8.75 per play
