The phosphorescent indoor landscape at Monster Mini Golf immerses putters in an eerie universe that inverts the sun-soaked cheer of conventional courses. Rimmed in glowing green barriers, 18 holes lure swingers of all sizes to challenge their coordination and resolve in the face of winged monsters, scowling animated trees, a creepy clown, and their opponents' shockingly dazzling smiles. Sheltered from searing rain and howling wind, the indoor course enables play around hazards such as a spell well and luminous, ghostly windmill at any time of the year. An in-house radio station and DJ mask the sound of pounding hearts with lively beats and course commentary, and golfers looking for additional glory can win prizes by participating in regular contests or at the on-site arcade.
In 1967, William J. Cuddigan began tilling and transforming his farmland using natural grasses and wooded barriers, slowly building what has since grown into a family fun center replete with a miniature golf course, batting cages, and a 52-stall driving range. The Cuddigan family still tends to the landscape, honoring William's original design while updating the facility with modern amenities. Covered and heated hitting stalls line the driving range, enabling players to practice in a natural setting throughout the year. The 18-hole miniature golf course has also seen many renovations but, like a recurring dream, many of its original features?windmill, lighthouse, and sinister clown nose hole?have been faithfully preserved.
