MinnPost has an interesting piece today from Ron Way, who mixes an assessment of Walker on the Green with a short history lesson on miniature golf. Among other “hmm … you don’t say?” nuggets, Way drops this factoid:
(The) first miniature golf course was the Ladies’ Putting Club in St. Andrews, Scotland, formed in 1867. Back then, it was taboo for women to swing a golf club more than shoulder high.
Some taboos are more meritorious than others. At least the Walker doesn’t discriminate with its taboos — anyone playing Walker on the Green will get a finger-wagging for swinging a club more than shoulder high.
