A top-rated mini-golf course in the world is located in Illinois.

Since I can remember, I have been a big fan of mini-golf. We called it putt-putt golf. My parents would take me all the time. There were quite a few near where I grew up. You could even play indoors during the winter at one of the local bowling alleys.

It was something fun to do with family and friends. I would even take girls on a date to play. I think I enjoyed it so much because I was not a good regular golfer but I could hold my own when it came to mini-golf.

When I moved to Rockford, I would play at Arnold Palmer on Alpine Road just north of East State Street and Golf and Games by CherryVale Mall. Those are both closed now but we still have Volcano Falls. That is always a good time.

I just heard about a mini-golf course in Illinois that I am definitely going to have to try out. It is called Par-King Skill Golf. It is located at  21711 North Milwaukee Avenue, Lincolnshire. That is not too bad of a drive from Rockford.

According to travelchannel.com, It is one of the... "13 of the Best Mini Golf Courses Across the Country."

According to gosocial.com, It is one of... "The Top 10 Craziest Mini Golf Courses On Earth."

That sounds like a "must-do" road trip for this summer.

From onlyinyourstate.com,

"There’s a challenging mini-golf course in Lincolnshire, Illinois that is known as the most difficult in the country, and if you can get through it, you’ve got skills."

They have two eighteen-hole courses featuring seven water holes and nineteen moving obstacles.

Take a look for yourself...
