Mandy’s 30th Birthday Mini-Golf Return to Novelty page
Wethersfield, CT 06109
Let me first admit that I am completely biased when it comes to this review. Let me set the scene: For my 30th birthday my parents threw me a birthday party. My mother came up with the brilliant idea of creating a 9 hole minigolf course in her yard. This was a completely original course.
The holes were lined with rope that was nailed into the ground. The obstacles were lawn ornaments that my parents already had throughout the yard. My father mowed the lawn a bit shorter within the bounds of the holes.
The course was quite difficult due to the unevenness of the lawn. The putters were plastic children’s putters, and the golf balls were plastic (to avoid broken windows due to enthusiastic swings). Needless to say, it was rather hard to execute a perfect swing.
This course was very difficult, but also incredibly fun. Considering my parents are very much amateurs when it comes to minigolf, I was very impressed with their attention to detail and their effort. There were even specially printed scorecards and miniature trophies!
