Golf Courses

Did you know? While the modern game of golf originated in 15th-century Scotland, the game's ancient origins are unclear and much debated.

Jackson, is also an avid golfer.

Mini-Golf Courses

Did you know? Geometrically-shaped minigolf courses made of artificial materials (carpet) began to emerge during the early 20th century. The earliest documented mention of such a course is in the 8 June 1912 edition of The Illustrated London News, which introduces a minigolf course called Gofstacle. Playing miniature golf courses requires mentally figuring unusual angles and carom speeds as balls rebound from bricks and stones. (Golfers will definitely need to carom off a stone or brick since more than one hole will lack direct routes to the holes.) Players should think of miniature golf as billiards or snookers with a golf ball and putter.
