Holiday Gift Ideas - Build Your Own Mini Golf

Well October is upon us and along with pumpkins, apple cider, and fall foliage, it is that time of year where we start getting bombarded with holiday advertisements. While I generally cast an unapproving eye at these early harbingers of winter's chill (and consumerism) I will contribute to the fray. I am making this exception because this gift may take some time coordinate - building your own miniature golf course.

The "Oriental Carpet Remnant" Hole at Mika's Down Under Miniature Golf Course

(Note the clever use of a fan aimed at the face for an added challenge.)

Back in 1996, a man named Matt constructed an entire 18-hole golf course in his basement as a Christmas present. The link I provide is from the "web archive" and unfortunately, some of the photographs will not load, but it has descriptions of the course. It truly is an inspiration and a great way to enjoy some golf when ensared in "The Snow Miser's" grip.

If anyone tries this please let me know!

Love, love, love your ideas and links!! Most of these little gifts can be modified for the holidays too with the substitution of red and green for the ribbons and other trimmings.

Thanks for sharing!
