Par-King Skill Golf: Black Course – Hole 9

Lincolnshire, Illinois

Black Course: Hole 9

The trumpeteer announces your arrival as a Mini Golfing legend! As he turns, the opening to get through changes direction. The hole is straight back but your timing has to be spot on to make it through otherwise you are down a slope on either side of the hole. Simple yet effective.

Par-King Skill Golf: Black Course – Hole 8

Lincolnshire, Illinois

Black Course: Hole 8

This hole totally reminds me of playing Gator Golf as a youngster.

I included a link above as Amazon has a few of these left! (It is an affiliate link through the Amazon Affiliate program) Basically Gator Golf was a fun looking ball return for kids.

For the hole, it is basically an adaptation of the classic around the bend type hole. The path on the right takes you closest to the hole. The path on the left wraps around and then drops in a cutout portion down to the lower green.

Par-King Skill Golf: Red Course – Hole 8

Lincolnshire, Illinois

Red Course: Hole 8

The race car hole! The middle track is the best option and then the left. The worst is the right. The ball can be blocked for shot two very easily and can hurt your score fairly quickly. A short shot goes down a blue ramp but doesn’t end up in too bad of a spot. The key is to stick to the left.

Helman’s Hole 8

Menomonee Falls, Wisconsin

Hole 8

A long and uneven dogleg left. Not sure I agree with the par of 5 since I easily nabbed a 2. The uneven surfaces could cause a bounce that makes the ball go out-of-bounds I suppose.

America’s Action Territory Course 3: Hole 8

Kenosha, Wisconsin

Course 3: Hole 8

This hole is rather tricky to get a hole-in-one on as the angles are tricky to hit and the variances in rock surfaces. One of the better options is to try to layup and get close to the hole for a 2 instead of gunning for it because you might end up far away and score a 3 instead.

America’s Action Territory Course 2: Hole 8

Kenosha, Wisconsin

Course 2: Hole 8

A simple hole but it can still can catch you off guard if you are not focused. The key to this one is to play the curve of the last bump. The slope will take the ball right to the hole and it doesn’t take a ton of power to do it. The rocks won’t help too much so it is best to avoid them. 😁

My approach was to hit from the left side of the tee area and aim for the last rock. Although it takes some practice to feel out your stroke, you have a pretty fair chance on sinking this one for an ace.

America’s Action Territory Course 1: Hole 8

Kenosha, Wisconsin

Course 1: Hole 8

This hole is very tough to get a hole-in-one on because the design makes it have only a few touch points that work. It’s a long hole but you don’t have a good angle from the tee-off area. You have to play one of the two slopes at least and you need to avoid banking off of the big rocks. The difficult part of that is that the slopes don’t have a lot to play off of and the rocks are not a smooth flat surface so the ball can fly in many directions, especially up and over to out-of-bounds.

My suggestion is to bank off of the left wall from the tee and hit the second slope to help change the direction to go towards the hole.

Hillbilly Mini Golf Course 1: Hole 8

Gatlinburg, Tennessee

Course 1- Hole 8: Par 2

This hole really punishes you if you miss the mark as follow-up shots typically will have bad lies. You have to hit under the barrel if you want a chance at a hole-in-one.

To make this shot, you have to bank twice. The first bank is off the left side of the narrow orange corridor then you have to bank off the right side concrete when under the barrel if your power and angles are right, you will hear the ball rattle in the cup.

Mulligan’s Hole 8

Racine, Wisconsin

Hole 8: Par 2

A relatively flat hole with a fork of paths. Both sides have a little bit of a bump but the left side is preferred as the angle for a bank shot is a bit better and there is a bit more room. The back of the hole is sloped a bit so it is great for rebounding shot where you go past the hole, up the slope, back down the slope and towards the hole.

Lexington Ice Center Course 3: Hole 8

Lexington, Kentucky

Course #3: Miracles

Hole 8: The Descending Dove

On this hole we really experienced an elevation change. Starting at the top of the slope, you hit the ball down and bank off a wood plank into a small room with the hole in it. Not much for skill on this one but more luck really. You just need a good bounce off the wood and the right speed. Also, do note that the ball could go out-of-bounds to the left at the bottom of the slope if you are not careful. This hole also had a beautiful painting of the Jordan River.

Hole 8 Reading:

“After Jesus was baptized by John, in the Jordan River, the heavens were opened and the spirit of God appeared, descending like a dove saying ‘This is my son whom I love, with him I am well pleased.”

Matthew 3: 13-17 NIV

Lexington Ice Center Course 2: Hole 8

Lexington, Kentucky

Course #2: New Testament

Hole 8: The Temple

A straight shot with a slight incline. Quite the reprieve from the prior grouping of challenging holes. In the design aspect, this hole reminds me of Fondy Sports Park Hole 4, with the structure covering the hole.

Hole Reading:

“The God who made the world and everything in it is the Lord of Heaven and earth and does not live in temples made by hands.”

Acts 17: 24-25

Lexington Ice Center Course 1: Hole 8

Lexington, Kentucky

Course #1: Old Testament

Hole 8: Garden of Eden

Somewhat octagonal in shape, you have to hit hard up the middle and bank to the right. This one was hard to get to near the hole off the tee. With the hole being blind from the tee makes this one pretty tough. The tree in the middle was a nice aesthetic to the hole.

Hole 8 Reading:

“After God had created the first man Adam, He saw it was not good for him to be alone, So he created a woman (Eve). He placed them both in the garden called Eden to work and care for it.”

Genesis 2: 4-18

Mini Golf Reviews Presents Fondy Sports Park Hole 8

Fon Du Lac, Wisconsin

Hole 8: Whoop-D-Doo (Par 2)

This type of hole is one of my favorites because it can be played in many ways. It also looks really cool if you can ace it because many have difficulty with this type. The three bumps cause the challenge here because you need to decide if you want a smooth stroke that plays each bump and rolls gently into the cup or you want to power through and skip one or two bumps altogether. The first option is preferred but sometimes course condition impacts that option. Another consideration is understanding your putt and how the ball rolls for you. You may need to compensate for each hill and its unique slope. After a bit of practice you should be able to play both styles.

Mini Golf Reviews presents: KOA Hole 8

Union, Illinois

Hole 8 was showing a bit more wear than other holes. This hole layout was also a bit misleading because the hole wasn’t straight through the opening as expected but instead slightly to the right. In order to ace this one you either needed to go straight along the right rail inside the church or bank off the left rail inside the church.
