Hobby 13: Mini Golf

Everyone loves mini golf, and today we are going to show you how to play for free. While the international sports organization World Minigolf Sport Federation (WMF) prefers to use the name "minigolf", the general public in different countries has also many other names for the game: miniature golf, mini-golf, midget golf, goofy golf, shorties, extreme golf, crazy golf, adventure golf, mini-putt and so on.

Harshal insisted that not only do we play mini golf, but that we pay for him so he could "beat us badly." We weren't doing that. Instead, we just decided to build our own golf course for free and challenge the self proclaimed master of miniature golf, Harshal. Here's how we put together our 5 hole championship course.

-Spare carpet or rugs
-Golf ball and putter
-Golf hole or cups
-Wood, books, stuffed animals, pillows, etc.

Making your own mini golf course is simple! First, use a spare piece of carpet or a leftover rug to outline your hole. Next, place objects like wood scraps or books under the rug to make bumps and hills. Place more on top to make obstacles for players to putt around. Use a cup or a specialized golf hole as your destination and start playing. If a player hits the ball off the carpet, give them a penalty stroke and let them place the ball where it left, or give them an incomplete for that hole.

So we challenged Harshal and here was our final scores:
Mike - 10
Jo - 16
Harshal - 18

Be creative and have fun!
