Par-King Skill Golf: Black Course – Hole 7

Lincolnshire, Illinois

Black Course: Hole 7

This hole is probably the most iconic and memorable hole at Par-King Skill Golf. Nailing a narrow skill shot with enough power to get up the ramp is no easy feat as a miss ends up on the lower green but quite short of the hole. If the skill shot is accomplished, the ball is taken up an elevator and for a spectacle of a ride down the roller coaster. With a little luck, the ball will go in the hole.

Par-King Skill Golf: Red Course – Hole 7

Lincolnshire, Illinois

Red Course: Hole 7

This hole has a lot of options and has some mechanics to it. This is designed rather well as there are many ways to get a hole-in-one. A long shot can go all the way around and bank off of the end wedge. The ball could stop along the curve and roll down. The ball could go in the apparatus loading the spaceship and shoot out. Lastly a quick bank shot off the tee gets the job done as well. The spaceship loading apparatus is fun to watch but it isn’t a reliable method as sometimes the ball pops out randomly. I personally prefer the quick and easy bank shot.

Helman’s Hole 7

Menomonee Falls, Wisconsin

Hole 7

Another long and frustrating hole. The angles don’t work well at all. You can end up in the water hazard after the bridge but it is not likely as the opening is actually not a favorable angle in itself. The hole is slightly elevated and that can throw your game off a little.

America’s Action Territory Course 3: Hole 7

Kenosha, Wisconsin

Course 3: Hole 7

A long curved hole that had some uphill elevation from the tee. There really isn’t much of a trick to this one other than hit hard enough to go around and that you need to bank off of the rock edging near the hole for the chance at a hole-in-one.

America’s Action Territory Course 2: Hole 7

Kenosha, Wisconsin

Course 2: Hole 7

A staple hole at many courses the two option hole with one path being up and over and the other being down and under.

On this particular design, the up and over is the most effective path. The angles are more favorable but a word of caution to not hit a power shot or you may fly out-of-bounds.

America’s Action Territory Course 1: Hole 7

Kenosha, Wisconsin

Course 1: Hole 7

A staple hole at many courses I’ve played, the over/under choice. Both options are viable and can play well. The high road seems easier to me to get a shot on the hole as it seems the low road would need to bank a little bit in order to go towards the hole. The important thing is to get close to where the hole is on the first shot, so focus on getting it up and over or down and under on 1.

Hillbilly Mini Golf Course 1: Hole 7

Gatlinburg, Tennessee

Course 1- Hole 7: Par 2

This one needed a bit of power to get to the back of the tunnel but the ball can bounce back so beware!

The first hole in the tunnel is not good even though it is harder to hit. It leads out of the first pipe and down a slope making a 2 at this point very difficult.

The pipe at the end of the tunnel leads near the hole, a hole-in-one all depends on ball speed and the spin it has when it leaves the pipe.

Mulligan’s Hole 7

Racine, Wisconsin

Hole 7: Par 3

There is a lot going on with this hole and a choice of playing to whatever your strength is. There are really four choices to be made and are as follows based on best outcome:

1. Sink it in the first cup. Chances are pretty good on a Hole-in-one with that shot. As it should, since it is very tough to get the right strength to not over shoot it. Behind the cup coming down the slope from either approach is more rough and it can slow down an overshot ball but also deters a bank shot so keep it in mind!

2. Sink it in the second cup. Chances are also pretty good here for a Hole-in-one if you can drain it, the only problem is the large patch of rough and the bottom where it comes out. It can slow the ball down significantly but on the other hand, it can change the ball’s course of direction and might be towards the hole

3. Aim for the small gap after the second hole. A tough shot with not much reward. Potentially can occur from overshooting the first cup. The ball may end near the actual hole if you are lucky but you have two patches of rough working against you and more randomness of angles that lessen the control of your outcome.

4. Bank of the edges to go down the left slope. This is probably the most difficult shot to line up since many angles do not work in its favor from the tee. A bank shot hard to the right from tee may work as well as banking off the edges by the gap. It is tough to judge as the brick does have some unpredictability to it that can change your desired outcome.

This one definitely makes one of my favorite holes, that’s for sure!

Lexington Ice Center Course 3: Hole 7

Lexington, Kentucky

Course #3: Miracles

Hole 7: An Axhead Floats

While on our visit, this hole was not functional. Although it leaves a poor impression on the course, the idea for this hole was quite clever and fun in theory. Water play holes are fun and add an element of randomness to the hole since the water can influence speed, direction, and ball spin. The water path on this hole would be the best option as it aligned with the hole. It probably wouldn’t be too difficult to hit out-of-bounds even with normal conditions so don’t hit too hard if going towards the water path. The narrow strip of green makes no sense for two reasons:

  1. It is extremely difficult to hit that angle to go onto the strip from the tee
  2. It doesn’t even line up with the hole as well as the water route did so why bother

The concept of this hole was fun but some design aspects were poor and the fact that it wasn’t working was disappointing. If it was working, this hole would have been a whole heap of fun and gives people a random chance at a hole-in-one.

Hole 7 Reading:

“Under the mighty hand of God, the prophet Elisha rescues an axhead from sinking in the Jordan River. By cutting a stick and throwing it in the same location, the axhead floated.”

2 Kings 6: 1-6

Lexington Ice Center Course 2: Hole 7

Lexington, Kentucky

Course #2: New Testament

Hole 7: Abide in Me

A couple of bumps and a tough angle. A one would be very difficult here and a two would also be challenging. The best bet is to aim for the left side as a normal bank approach to the right side would fly out of bounds as there is a subtle but large enough bump to do damage about 5 feet in.

Hole Reading (sign was missing but the indicated reading looked like it was Hole 6’s Reading so there must have been a little confusion here between these holes when created)

Lexington, Kentucky

Course #1: Old Testament

Hole 7: He Rested on the 7th Day

This hole, shaped like an obelisk, was almost a gimme ace, however you can over shoot it and end up on the point or even out of bounds. It does slope slightly towards the hole so it can be easy to over shoot. The best option is to give it a light, smooth, stroke and let the slope do the work.

Hole 7 Reading:

“God completed His work in six days, so He rested on the 7th day. He blessed this day as holy, and made it a day of rest.”

Mini Golf Reviews Presents Fondy Sports Park Hole 7

Fon Du Lac, Wisconsin

Hole 7: Rocky Point (Par 2)

This hole is your basic dogleg type hole but you have to bank of the large pink rock. If you miss, it could be problematic with either ending up in the rocks or out-of-bounds which is what happened to me cutting it too close to the edge of the rock.

Hole 6: Wacky Windmill

Mini Golf Reviews presents: KOA Hole 7

Union, Illinois

Hole 7 was designed well for this putt-putt type course. You have to hit into the castle and putt the ball into the hole on the left. Logically, one would think the left hole in the castle is the right one but they actually are switched! Also the design of the ramp and the small opening can make it challenging to get the one you want (the right) as it bounces around quite a bit inside.

One criticism I have for these type of holes is that you have to use the skill shot. There should always be another way that is not a direct route. This is important to allow players a choice and can be easier for younger kids. Basically a opening to the right of the castle would be a good option.
