The world record on one round of minigolf is 18 strokes on 18 holes.
While the international sports organization World Minigolf Sport Federation (WMF) prefers to use the name “minigolf”, we prefer the term “SAFARI GOLF!” The general public in different countries have also used many other names for the game: miniature golf, mini-golf, midget golf, goofy golf, shorties, extreme golf, crazy golf, adventure golf, mini-putt and so on. The name Putt-Putt is the trademark of an American company that builds and franchises miniature golf courses in addition to other family-oriented entertainment, and the term “putt-putt” is sometimes used to refer to the game itself. The term “Minigolf” was formerly a registered trademark of a Swedish company that built its own patented type of minigolf courses.
The 18th and final holes of many miniature golf courses are designed to literally capture the ball, effectively preventing the player from playing additional rounds without purchasing another game. This may be accomplished with a “drain” or trap-door hole setup that channels the ball to a lockbox. One popular method of theming the 18th hole in the United States is to use a gated, ramped target area. In our case we make the offer:
