How to Design a Mini Golf Course
Your golf course should demonstrate your unique style and personality. Maybe you’re focused on creating a challenge for your customers with moving obstacles. You could also add fun features such as smoke machines, animatronics, and special effects.
You might also showcase zany tricks in your mini golf construction. That includes scale rollercoasters, attraction replicas, ball contraptions, and more. Or you could surprise your guests with a few strategically-placed shock factors.
You could even incorporate live music, on-site food, and other games to keep your customers happy. It all starts by building a mini golf course that will attract attention.
