If you are looking for an activity for date night or to do with the entire family but have exhausted the normal options, here is a great list for you today! Its time to hit the astro turf and track your score while playing miniature golf. This sport is known by other names such as putt putt golf or mini golf but it usually consists of small putting irons, colored balls, plastic grass, tiny holes and obstacles and odds stacked up against you.

Playing can become quite competitive and fun which makes it perfect for group outings. Here are several local places that offer miniature golf fun to check out this summer:
