Forced to cut its cultural budget or face a total loss of its nation's heritage, Scottish Parliament settled on miniaturizing golf—a fortunate last-minute substitute for miniaturizing kilts. Celebrate the Scots' pared-down pastime with today's Groupon: to Midget Links Golf. Choose between the following options:
- For $8 you get two adult rounds of miniature golf (a $12 value) and two small shaved ices (a $4 value; a $16 total value).
- For $10, you get one round of miniature golf for two adults ages 13 and older (a $12 value) and two children ages 5–12 (an $8 value; a $20 total value). Children under 5 play for free.
The emerald fairways at Midget Links–one of the nation's five oldest miniature golf courses–guard 19 dimpled orb receptacles with a collection of wacky and challenging obstacles, creating fun and exciting play for the entire family. Classic putt-putt fixtures include cannons, waterfalls, and windmills; dwarfed moats, drawbridges, and stone castles coalesce to form 16th century landscapes. After sinking long puts on the 18th hole, consult the resident goldfish housed in a 1,500-gallon aquarium at the bonus tee for tips on sinking prize-winning holes-in-one or surviving if your office cubicle fills up with water. Golfers can go toe-to-toe with a similarly aged loved one, nemesis, or clone, and cool off from hotly contested battles with two small servings of shaved ice, which tickles taste buds with more than 15 flavors including black cherry and ocean-blue raspberry. Alternatively, choose the second option to round up a family foursome and determine the household's preeminent putter.
Midget Links Golf
The gauntlet of ramps, windmill blades, and dastardly drawbridges at Midget Links Golf has been challenging players for more than half a century. Originally opened in 1947, the 18-hole course is most famously known for the goldfish-filled, 1,500-gallon aquarium that serves as the focal point of the course’s circular layout. Other noteworthy course features include the unofficial 19th hole, which gives players the chance to win free rounds, prizes, and the polite applause of onlooking goldfish. With so much history embedded in its greens, Miget Links Golf even plays host to the annual Indiana State Open, a tour event for the putt-putt pros of the United States Miniature Golf Association.
