How to Win at Mini Golf
Step 1: Choose the best putter for you.
Get into your stance and evaluate the putter. The top should hit you about where your belt does, while your hands should be just about centered on the grip. Pro tip: If you have a putter at home from playing regular-sized-golf, bring it!
Step 2: Survey the hole.
Feel free to walk to the hole, look around, and note any hazards that might endanger your shot, like water traps, uneven terrain, or sneaky slopes. Remember, mini golf courses are designed to be challenging, so there are often changes in slope that are hard to see when you’re standing at the tee.
Step 3: Get focused and visualize your shot.
The smartest move is not always an attempt at a hole in one. Mini golf courses are usually par 2, meaning that you should be able to sink the ball within two strokes. Carefully plan your shot; would it be best to bounce the ball off of something? Maybe you need to curve it off a slope to set up your second shot for success? Whatever your strategy may be, choose the exact point you want to send the ball to, and visualize a straight line to that spot.
Step 4: Nail your stance.
You can’t make a great shot without a great stance. Your feet should be aligned with the path you want the ball to take, and the ball should be lined up with the inner side of your forward-most foot. Keep your eye on the target and follow through.
Step 5: Take your shot.
The key to mini golf is giving your ball enough momentum to reach the hole, but no so much that it shoots past it. For your first couple of putts, pay extra attention to how fast the ball travels. After that, you should be able to get more of a feel for how the putting green reacts with the ball and how much power is needed to get it where you want it to go.
Whether you’re a novice or a pro, we hope to see you soon at Zone Action Park for the best mini golf in Lewisville, Texas!
