We travel all over to find mini golf courses of varying quality but what we have here is a special find. It felt perfect to share for National Mini Golf Day 2016 and for the 100 year anniversary of the game.
The Pink Putter’s father, step-mom and sister were in town and we used their visit as an excuse to road trip down the beautiful Wisconsin/Minnesota border to the highly recommended Elmer’s Auto and Toy Museum in Fountain City, WI. After a stop for delicious pie in Stockholm, almost everyone fell asleep in the car for the final leg of the drive.
Thirty minutes in, I caught a quick glimpse of a sign for a mini golf course. I woke up everyone in the car with a quick stop and veered on to a dirt road. If everyone in the car wasn’t slightly annoyed already, we had to wait for a long train to go by to get to this abrupt stop that was not on the schedule.
We head down a road into a campground/marina/trailer park and no course was in sight. Sensing a revolt from the Pink Putter’s family, I looped around the campgrounds to exit. Just before the failure could sink in, I spotted green turf surrounded by red brick. The inhabitants of the trailer park had set up in the middle of the mini golf course after it was decommissioned. I grabbed these photos quickly from the car as everyone urged me to finish quickly. They were worried the locals might not take too kindly to us.
