After our little Orlando Christmas adventure, we drove about three hours south the visit my family in the West Palm Beach/Delray area. My mom had heard about a new mini golf course that opened at the local Science Museum, so we knew we had to check it out.
Par – This 18-hole Conservation themed mini golf course was designed by Jim Fazio and Gary Nicklaus. Located in the museum’s backyard, it blends in well with the surrounding landscape. Palm trees, natural grass, ponds, brooks and local plant life work together to create a small sized version of what feels like a real golf course. While very scenic, the game play is better catered toward practicing real golf putting. There are no novelties or games of chance. It was a pleasant outing and we got to check out the rest of the museum and aquarium, which had some fun exhibits.
