Mini Golf, a game that has kept countless friends, families, couples and co-workers united for generations, celebrated its 100th anniversary in 2016. In earlier times, mini golf was played outdoors, where grinning clowns and spinning windmills were the main features. Now, the newer generation of miniature golf is called “putt-putt.” It is played indoors, in complete darkness, where the player is guided by fairways and backlit figures.
How Miniature Golf is Different
Mini golf has evolved from the original sport of golf and is much easier to play than its parent game. When compared to 17% of players who enjoy playing the quite expensive game of golf, 44% accept that they enjoy playing its lighter version, miniature golf, according to a golf survey published by Aytm.com.
Similar to regular golf, mini golf too is played on courses consisting of a series of holes that are usually a multiple of 9 and are kept within a distance of 10 yards. In “putt-putt,” the sole focus is on a player’s ability to hit a ball and ‘putt’ the golf ball into a hole. The player, however, needs to ensure that they don’t hit the ball too hard, such that it knocks clear to the other side. To create a similar environment of a typical golf course, there are artificial surfaces like carpet in a volcano-shaped terrain with artificial obstacles like rocks, caves, ramps, tunnels, tubes and windmills.
