chasing after every trend

A few years ago, on a really long road trip, I listened to some podcasts to pass the time. One of them was on the history of miniature golf courses; the hosts of the show said it was invented in order to keep the ladies off the “real” course at St. Andrews Golf Course, which of course everyone knows is THE golf course.

I am not real sure what the St. Andrews fellows thought they were protecting the course and/or the gals from, but what happened was that this new, simplified game took off and by the 1920s there were scaled down golf courses all over the place.

And that brings us to this out-of-commission miniature golf course on the edge of town.
