Tips for a fun time at a Mini-Golf Course?
Know your group. Are you super competitive, or will it cause a fight? In our house, we learned not to keep score. It’s a no-win situation when you do.
Be prepared for the sun. Most courses have little cover. Consider going later in the day, or bringing plenty of sunscreens. If you want to skip the chemicals, wear a sun shirt! I’m in love with them. Also, consider bringing a bottle of water to stay hydrated.
Go early or late in the day. I love being the first to the course, just so we don’t have to wait on people.
If you are going with someone really young, under three, consider not paying around for yourself. Chances are you’ll just be messing around trying to hold your club plus helping someone else put.
