Mini-golf exhibit inside local museum
CORAL GABLES, Fla. (WSVN) -- An exhibit is allowing golfers of all ages to enjoy the love of the game, even under pouring rain.
The Coral Gables Museum opened a new nine-hole course to bring back the memories of miniature golf.
Miniature golfer Tonie Braswell said, "Just being goofy and just having fun, bumping each other out of the way."
South Florida used to be home to various miniature golf courses in the 60s and 70s.
"People love it. It's a great family activity," said Christine Rupp, Coral Gables Museum Director. "It's inexpensive, and it gets kids away from their devices."
The 9-hole course is not your average course. The course is themed to represent several locations found throughout the city. "We have the Biltmore, we have the Riviera Country Club, the Coral Gables Water Tower, we have a hole that was designed by a local organic farmer," said Rupp.
One hole, which seems to already be the crowd's favorite, includes an alligator.
The game does require patience. Golfer Steve Zuniga said, "I think I get the angles right, but then I don't. It's kinda like billiards in that regard. I see it, but it doesn't always work out."
With some luck it can work out. Hole in one, through the streets in Paris. I guess it's beginner's luck.
