Bring The U.S Open to Your Backyard

The U.S Open is here! A few lucky individuals are watching the game real time, but most of us are stuck watching on our TV's. Why not bring a bit of the game to your very own backyard? Building a backyard mini golf course is a great way to get the entire family involved, outside, and having fun. 



Backyard Mini Golf

Is there any place as magical as a mini golf course? With all of their surprises, challenges, and quirky obstacles, mini golf is a summer activity that brings joy and laughs to the whole family. Whether you're the best putter in the world or go over the stroke limit every hole, there's crazy fun to be have at every level. Some of us aren't lucky enough to have a mini golf course nearby, but no fear! SOLO is here to help you build a wacky Backyard Mini Golf course that's on par with any professional one, guaranteed.  

What You'll Need:

  • Solo® Squared® Plastic Cups
  • Pool noodles 
  • Scissors
  • Shovel
  • Trinkets to use for obstacles
  • Golf balls
  • Golf clubs

How to Create Your Own Mini Golf Course: You most likely won't have the room to create a full 18 hole course in your backyard, so aim to build 3-5 holes. On relatively flat ground, dig a hole deep enough to place your Solo® Squared® Plastic Cup. Alternatively, turn the cup on its side and dig just deeply enough so the cup will stay in place. Cut pool noodles in half and place them around the terrain you're building, forming a rectangle with one side open, which is where you will putt from. Inside the border you've created, place obstacles such as a wall of water from a sprinkler, a garden gnome you have to find your way around, or a pit of sand you have to avoid. Have fun crafting each hole, and then get playing!
