On September 21 head on over to your local miniature golf course with your family and friends for a day of fun and adventure, because it is Miniature Golf Day!
An offshoot of golf, miniature golf is a leisure sport that focuses on putting and includes artificial turf and obstacles.
It is believed that miniature golf was first invented, sans their characteristic obstacles and windmills, in Scotland in the late 19th century as a way to allow women to golf. Because it was unseemly for women to use a full sized golf club, the Ladies' Putting Club of St. Andrews decided to miniaturize the sport.
Miniature golf or put put as it is also sometimes called made its commercial debut in the early 20th century in North Carolina under the name of Thistle Dhu. The name was derived from the Scottish pronunciation of the words "this'll do".
The holiday is also sometimes celebrated on the second Saturday of May.
How to Celebrate?
Round up your family and friends and visit your local miniature golf course and play a few rounds of golf.
