I understand miniature golf and regular golf are not exactly identical twins. However, they are at least in the same family. Therefore, let’s take a look at some of the craziest, wackiest, coolest, and most fun miniature golf courses from around the globe. Now my boss didn’t allow me to travel around the world to play each of these courses (Believe me, I asked!) so I wasn’t able to put this list into any particle order.
Shoot for the Stars Mini-Golf (Branson, MO)
This unique course brings the thrills of Hollywood to Branson, Missouri. Through 18-holes of fun miniature golf, you rise to fame as Hollywood’s latest celebrity. You even have your own agent, Marty McBooster, who gives humorous advice on each hole.

Dino Park (Phuket, Thailand)
We are traveling abroad for this next one. Located in Phuket, Thailand, Dino Park is primeval 18-hole experience, which takes golfers face to face with dinosaurs. According to their website, golfers “play beside a primeval swamp, in a lava cave, beside a moving and roaring Tyrannosaurus rex, under a 12-meter waterfall and beneath an erupting volcano”.

Cancun Lagoon Golf (Myrtle Beach, SC)
