Minigolf articles

A quote from Dr Michael Hurdzan: "to grow the game all of us in the golf business should do everything in our power to get a golf club in the hands of non-golfers.  If getting beginners to start out playing miniature golf is the way to get them interested in the game, then that's great!"

Minigolf balls

Glow Products Glowing Golf Balls.  A clear dimpled ball with a luminescent stick insert (available in orange, green, pink and blue).

I've now got a couple of these and they're great.  Only problem I foresee, if you're a course owner, you may not, won't, get them back.  So you'll either have to charge a small additional deposit or sell them on site.  The kids will love them.  I haven't got the heart to hit one of mine with an 8 iron as I intend to keep them both for miniature golf, so no views on flight characteristics here.  Having said that, given my slice I wouldn't learn much any way.  I strongly doubt you'll be allowed to use these for tournament play, except for the World Crazy Golf Championship perhaps. Highly recommended for fun miniature golf.  And having used them in a friendly, they give a great insight into the movement of the ball on the greens.  This is due to the insert that runs through the centre, giving more visual information more effectively.  Try one and see for yourself.  I've learnt a lot and incidentally I won, I think Britain's number 7 (Mark Spry) wasn't ready for this latest innovation.  Stephen Potter (a famous English author - to some) wins again.

I strongly suggest that you do not buy this book.  It's too common-sensical, it's too obvious, it's too good for you.  How am I supposed to continue my domination of world putting if you read this?  Gamesmanship has no place in tournament play I whole-heartedly agree, in all other scenarios it's perfectly acceptable.  Indeed it should be encouraged, the success of Planet Hastings Crazy Golf Club is down to hours of practice with fellow members in full-blown mayhem - what better way to test your pre-shot routine, your target fixing and your play for the moment attitude?  Sadly Doctor Bob doesn't highlight this, but in time............
