Last Sat I had a choice: movie, bar, or mini golf. I have not played mini golf in ten years, so I opted for it. It was fun. There are a lot of courses around, if you google it. And, talk about a healthy alternative to my other evening options!
I haven't played in years either! I wonder how much that would ruin my real golf game. I feel like I might want to hit the ball too hard.
Although what you said about an alternative to some of your other evening activities made me want to comment - it's so fun when you can come up with something to get your friends out of their regular rut of drinking or going to a movie. Remember all the fun we used to have getting physical as kids? Planning a tennis game, a hike, a volleyball or kickball or swimming outing are all great fun - and typically less expensive than a debaucherous, typical outing.
