Mini golf is a very fun activity that brings people together, and what would make it even more entertaining is being able to create your own course. Working on a project and getting to enjoy it when you are done is so much more rewarding. So, let me walk you through how to build your very own miniature golf course.
Choose the location
The first and most important step is you need to decide where you want to build your course, because so many other decisions will depend on this. You get to choose how big you want it to be and what shape it will be so your future plans can be clearer and more accurate.
Choose the material
Deciding what material you are going to use to build your golf course is very important for the type of adhesive you will use and the kind of props you will add later on, all depend on this. There are lots of options to choose from. Here, you could use wood if you want something more sturdy or a cardboard if you want something lightweight. Foam could also work, but the glue you use to stick everything together will differ and the weight of the obstacles will also vary.
Choose the theme
The fun part about building your own mini golf course is that you get to decide its theme. You can make it animal themed and add cute stuffed animals all around, or maybe you could make it city themed where you could put mini buildings as well as sidewalks, maybe even some miniature humans here and there. The sky’s the limit really.
Get your gear
One of the most important things in golfing is having the appropriate gear, like golf tees and clubs. Selecting the right golf tee could be tricky because there are some specifications that should be followed. Also, using the right golf club could make or break a game. But if you get the right golfing tee and club your game and skill will be improved significantly so choose wisely.
Design your course
After you do all that, you need to take a step back and start sketching the layout of your course. There are so many choices you need to make now, like where the hole is going to go, how many curves you will add, where the obstacles will be. Having a detailed drawing or blueprint with the details will help make this process easier and providing you with a clear guideline to follow.
Bits and pieces
If you decide to build your own course, there are some things that you won’t need to buy. The holes can be made out of plastic cups that you can duct tape or glue in place, the obstacles can be built out of Legos, cardboard or even empty cans. This way you will end up with a very unique course that has your own personal touch all over it.
Once you are done, you get to assemble everything and build it following the original plan that you made where you get to see your vision come to life. This is where the sense of accomplishment, joy and pride that you actually built this sets in.
Now you get to play mini golf on your own personalised golf course whenever you want, with whoever you want. Let’s not forget that you get bragging rights since you are the one who made this whole miniature golf course yourself.
