Minigolf course, bikes and books at Kurpark
Not too sure whether minigolf could be considered a sport? However it's a funny looking game, I personally am not really familiar with. Yet this minigolf place right at Timmendorfer Strand's Kurpark is a very neat-sweet one! We haven't played there but had their fantastic tasting coffee (comes in a plastic cup what's just fine) & ice cream (popcsicle). Also this minigolf course offers bicycles to rent.
And how precious that is: they sell used books for supporting the local fire department (cash of the sold books is given to the fire dept). Also the salesfolks behind the counter are very, very nice!
The earliest documented minigolf competitions were played in the United States.. qualification play-offs were played in all of the 48 states, and the final competition on Lookout Mountain, Chattanooga, Tennessee attracted over 200 players representing thirty states. After the Depression ten years later, minigolf died out as a competition sport in America, and has begun to recover only during the most recent decades. Luckily enough, the American minigolf sport boom of 1930s inspired many European countries, and the fire of minigolf sport lived on in Europe.. In 1938 Joseph and Robert Taylor from Binghamton, New York started building and operating their own miniature golf courses. These courses differed from the ones in the late 20s and early 30s; they were no longer just rolls, banks, and curves, with an occasional pipe thrown in. Their courses not only had landscaping, but also obstacles, including windmills, castles, and wishing wells..
