  • What are mini golf rules?

    Start by placing your ball on the green at the beginning of the hole. Take turns placing the ball (with the golf club) towards the hole and counting how many strokes it takes you to sink the ball. On the scorecard, write down how many strokes it takes to get the ball into the hole.

  • What if someone hits your ball in mini golf?

    If you are off the green and play your approach and your ball impacts your playing partner's ball, your ball will be played from where it lays, but your friend's ball will be returned to its original location. There will be no penalty incurred, and there will be no penalty in match play.
