    Really fun book!

    I purchased this for my husband for Father's Day from our 7 year old son. They both love to play golf and this gives them something to do at home when the golf course is out of the question. They enjoy having their own miniature golf tournaments and I love being the spectator. Would highly recommend for any golf lover! FUN!

    If you like this...

    ...check out "Little Book of Indoor Golf Games". It has real putting games you can actually play at home on a carpet. It's cheap and loads of fun. In our house, the kids like it as much as the adults!

    Both books make perfect birthday presents and stocking stuffers.

    For a golfing friend that you need to buy an inexpensive gift for.

    This was a very cute idea and was kind of fun to do after leagues or an outing. A couple of brews in the belly didn't hurt. I thought it was clever and unusual.

    Fun Mini Golf Book!

    My son found this book at his school's book fair at Barnes and Noble.
    It was an absolute "hit"!

    A Hole in One for This Little Book

    A Hole in One for this Little Book
    There is nothing miniature about this book except its actual size. It is a clever, hands on, no puttering around, homage to miniature golf. And in its most practical sense it succeeds in immediate gratification for readers who cannot wait for summer to arrive. Read and Play could be its subtitle. Much fun.

    A Great Gift for Golf Lovers

    If you want to give something different and unusual to a golf fan, then this product is it. Even those you aren't golf lovers really liked the idea.

    The "book" itself is a series of golf courses. You take the minature metal golf ball and place it in the hole at the top right hand corner to see where it lands, just like at an actual mini golf course. Each page/s have different holes/courses.

    It looks and is a lot of fun! Fore!

    Perfect gift for dads - or kids!

    Part game, part book, this is a unique gift for any golf fan or anyone with fond memories of playing mini golf. Beautifully illustrated, fun, and trickier than it looks!
