Miniature golf is one part sport, one part visual art, and one part magic. Many of us have fond memories of our favorite childhood putt-putt course, and our own children continue to find delight in knocking a golf ball through quirky, imaginative obstacles. Area courses offer families physical activity and relaxed time together for no more than the price of a movie.
Here are a few of our favorites. Also check with your local park district; some maintain their own miniature golf courses and charge reasonable rates.You might also like:
