    I played putt-putt golf this evening with a girl we'll call Melissa. It was a really great time and Melissa is just the most amazing woman ever. Totally love that girl to death. But that's besides the point.

    So. The last time you played miniature golf and/or putt-putt golf? Any pointers? Best game? Worst game?

    Yeah? Was it fun? I did it last night, it was a total blast! Really wore me out though. I guess I'm out of shape! :)

    No, he was playing XTREME miniature golf. The hole is at a 90 degree angle from the starting point.

    Anyways, I love miniature golf. I'm glad the closest miniature golf course is an hours' drive away, otherwise I'd waste entirely too much money at those things. Especially the cool golf course I went to once where you had to put the ball into a stream, which then carried it down to the hole.

    Last time I played was in December. I got four or five hole-in-one shots that time. To me it's really just intuition about how the ball is going to act if I hit it with the putter angled a cartain way with a particular amount of force, so I can't really give tips on something that I just feel my way through :( 

    You'd be surprised though, how many courses at Putt-Putt franchise locations are designed to give a hole-in-one if you can make a perfectly straight shot, even if it doesn't look like it immediately, and even on some of the "hard" courses.

    I used to play a lot... Now not so much... It makes it more fun when you bet a dollar a hole...

    As for the putter, if I get one that rattles, I'll ask for another one... And normally choose the golf ball that is my favorite color or a close second...:lol

    it's been years... and I really suck at it. I am almost as bad at Mini Golf as I am putting on the green of a real golf course.

    I played it on sunday with my missus. We call it crazy golf here.

    You have to have a very firm grip on your putter shaft and have a keen eye. If you don't aim carefully, you'll end up missing the hole entirely.

    I find that if you miss, you are best to just keep going and try again. Nothing more worse than missing the final shot and giving up!

    My missus says i'm the best shot she's ever seen. She handles the putter well too though!

    My wife and I played it on our honeymoon about 8 years ago. I wasn't too bad at it, and shot 3 hole-in-ones in a row, and it won me another round free. Funny thing is, I had never played it before that day in my life! :p

    I'm going to one this Sat in Pine Creek, NJ. Mimi golf is great. Girls can play and not that much physical endurance is needed. Kinda helps with your short game in golf, too. You drive for show, but you put for dough....

    I used to play by myself, but that got boring. Later, my girlfriend and I started playing minigolf together - that's when the real fun started.

    It's been way too damn long, and I don't know why.

    Sometimes I feel like I'm the only one interested in it.


    EDIT: Goddamn, that looks like innuendo.
