Miniature Golf Course Terminology
A visit to a miniature golf course can be an enjoyable outing with friends and family. It can also be used as a chance to improve essential putting skills. The following is some golf terminology to help you feel more at home on the green.
Ace: Ace is another term for a hole in one. Aces are more difficult on some holes than they are on others. While a hole in one is always impressive, the par difficultly of a hole determines just how impressive the ace really is.
Address: In mini golf, your address is the way your body and feet are positioned prior to hitting the ball. If your stroke was bad, try adjusting your address.
Birdie: Players get birdies when they are one under par on a particular hole. This means they have completed the hole in fewer strokes than anticipated.
Bogey: Players get bogeys when they are one over par on a particular hole. This means they have completed the hole in more strokes than anticipated.
Cup: The cup is the hole in the ground you are aiming for.
Face: This is the part of a putter that – hopefully – makes contact with the golf ball.
Mulligan: A mulligan is when a player retakes a shot. Mulligans are not allowed in any official golf tournament, but they may be allowed by friends and family in a casual game of golf.
Par: Par is the ideal number of strokes it should take to sink your golf ball into the hole. The par difficulty is determined by the course designer, and it varies depending on factors such as the length of the hole and the obstacles that are present.
Play Through: Allowing another group to surpass your group is also known as letting them play through. It is proper etiquette to offer another group the opportunity to play through if they are being kept waiting.
