Basic Mini-Golf Terms

Mini-golf is a game that can be enjoyed by people of all ages and skill levels, even those who have never played before. Here are some of the most common terms you might encounter

  • A “Hole-in-one” refers to sinking the ball in the hole with just one shot.
  • “Par” is the expected number of strokes a golfer needs to sink the ball. A hole’s par value determines its difficulty.
  • A “birdie” is achieved when a player scores 1 under par, such as sinking a ball in 3 shots on a par-4 hole.
