What's great about this activity is that you don't have to be an avid golfer, talented, with a low golf handicap to enjoy it, no, the whole family can play, regardless of their skills level and age.

Mini golf is known as one of the most popular entertainment attractions and it is a proven social experience that brings people of all ages together.
