Mega Mini Golf


You might call it mini golf, putt-putt or something else entirely, but whatever you call it, you are in for quite a crazy game. Despite the haters, I remain adamant that it is more than just playing fetch with yourself. The novelty of it is charming and there's something to be said for themed props, no matter how old you are.

We recently enjoyed a game of American-themed mini golf that was both entertaining and challenging at Mega Mini Golf Campbelltown. It's the right place to go for a little healthy competition.

Let the games begin


Mini golf has been popular since the 19th century, the oldest course can be found in Scotland, constructed in 1867 for ladies only, as it was thought unbecoming for a woman to swing a golf club past her shoulders. It remains as one of the most prestigious mini golf courses today.

In the 1920's, mini golf was so popular, that there were over 150 courses on rooftops in New York City alone. After the depression, however, cheaper versions of courses became the norm, full of old tyres, rain pipes, barrels and rocks. By the end of the 1930's, around 4 million people in the US were playing mini golf. The motorised windmills, moving ramps and hazards started appearing in the 1950's.

In Australia today, mini-golf is a great family activity and somewhat of a casual game, good for a laugh with your mates. In Europe however, the game is taken very seriously by some, and this year, a handful of Australians tried to make their mark on what is currently a European-dominated competition at the Mini Golf World Championships in Croatia.

In our game, however, we battled it out in a game that lasted around an hour. We began our adventure under the sea, putted through to Egypt and the Pharoah's tomb, then on further into the Wild West for a putting show down.

Under the Sea


The themed courses are detailed and well laid out, suitable for any age or skill level – I know this because I was playing and not doing too badly against my opponent.
