This landscaped 18-holer describes itself as the closest thing to being on a full-scale golf course. It is set against a mountainous Adirondack backdrop amid flowing streams, waterfalls and real sand traps. Hand-carved wooden lumberjacks complement plush green plants and flowers, and water hazards can be found on every hole. At an acre in size, it is one of the bigger mini-golf courses to feature in our top ten."
