Have you ever played mini golf? A variation of golf that focuses exclusively on the putting aspect of the game, this popularity of this activity is in great part due to its accessibility. It can easily be played by people of all ages and genders since it doesn’t require any specific knowledge and isn’t physically demanding.
The rules of mini golf are similar to those of its parent sport. The only difference is that mini golf courses feature various obstacles such as mini bridges, lakes, buildings, statues and barricades in order to make the game more fun and entertaining. Of course, because of the difference in scale, the techniques used by mini golf players are different from those applied by golfers – overall, though, the goal is still to put a ball in a hole.
