The fall season and weather are here, which means your family may be looking for an activity to do outside before the weather gets too cold. Can we suggest a round or two of mini golf? Make sure dad leaves his clubs at home, he won’t need them! A good game of mini golf has its own rules and winning strategies.
If you’re looking to master mini golf, check out our 4 tips:
Choose Your Putter Wisely
When you choose a putter, you’ll want the top of the putter to be around your belt level to make your swing comfortable. Should you want to play it safe, you can always bring your own putter to ensure a comfortable swing.
Get A Lay Of The Land
Before you putt, evaluate the land for the hole. You’ll want to take a mental note of any slopes, water traps, and any obstacles. In addition, it’s not a bad idea to watch any players ahead of you and learn from their mistakes. It may save you from a bad swing!
Play Your Angles
There will be obstacles between the tee and hole, that’s the fun in mini golf! The first hole or two are typically easy, so they build your confidence and get you comfortable with your swing. It’s important to remember once you hit holes with obstacles in them, the walls are your friend. Do a little math and play your angles to get around any hurdles.
This is the important tip! You can visualize yourself getting a hole in one. Don’t think about missing it or having a hard time! Win or lose, the most important thing is to have fun!
