Miniature golf, also known as minigolf, mini-putt, goofy golf, crazy golf, or putt-putt, is a kind of golf that focuses only on the putting part of the game. The goal of the game is to get the fewest points possible. It’s played on courses having a succession of holes (typically a multiple of 9) that are comparable to its parent, but with shorter lengths (usually within 10 yards from tee to cup).

Artificial putting surfaces (such as carpetartificial turf, or concrete), a geometric layout that frequently necessitates non-traditional putting lines such as bank shots, and artificial obstacles such as tunnels, tubes, ramps, moving obstacles like windmills, and concrete, metal, or fiberglass walls are all used in the game. It is merely a tiny version of its parent game while miniature golf preserves many of these traits but does not use any props or obstacles.

While the World Minigolf Sport Federation (WMF) favours the term “minigolf,” the general public in various nations refers to the game by a variety of names, including miniature golf, mini-golf, midget golf, silly golf, shorties, extreme golf, crazy golf, adventure golf, mini-putt, and putter golf.

The phrase “putt-putt” is frequently used generically to refer to the game itself. Putt-Putt is a trademark of an American firm that creates and franchises miniature golf facilities as well as other family-oriented entertainment. The name “minigolf” was once a registered trademark of a Swedish corporation that designed and built its own proprietary minigolf courses.

Minigolf courses with geometrical shapes made of artificial materials (carpet) first appeared in the early twentieth century. The Illustrated London News’ 8 June 1912 issue presents a minigolf course named Gofstacle, which is the oldest known reference of such a course.


The Thistle Dhu (“This’ll Do”) course at Pinehurst, North Carolina, and Garnet Carter’s 1927 Tom Thumb design from Lookout Mountain, Tennessee, were the first standardized minigolf courses to reach into mass production. In 1922, golf enthusiast Thomas McCullough Fairbairn changed the game by inventing a suitable artificial green made of cottonseed hulls, sandoil, and dye. Miniature golf became widely available as a result of this discovery; by the late 1920s, there were over 150 rooftop courses in New York City alone, with tens of thousands more across the United States.

The early twentieth-century American minigolf boom came to an end during the late 1930s economic downturn. Before the end of the 1930s, nearly all minigolf courses in the United States had closed and been demolished. The Parkside Whispering Pines Miniature Golf Course, located near Rochester, New York, and designated on the National Register of Historic Places in 2002, is an unique surviving example from this time.

The Maples Inn in Pointe-Claire, Quebec, has Canada’s first miniature golf course. In the 1890s, the “Mapes” was built as a vacation residence, but it was remodeled as a club in 1902, opened to the public in 1914, and included a miniature golf course in 1930. In 1985, the popular nightclub burnt down.
