After graduating from college a young man from Denver, Colorado has embarked on a trip across all 50 states to visit and review crazy golf courses. A minigolf fan since childhood, Dan Caprera, 23, has trekked around the States putting and fulfilling his passion for travel. He’s still out there, and is documenting his exploits on a blog, with funny and action-packed posts on each minigolf course he visits and plays.
You could say he’s an American version of our home grown hero, ‘putter nutter’ Richard Gottfried, whose similar passion has led to his visiting hundreds of minigolf courses in the UK and Ireland. His blog The Ham and Egger Files can be found here.
But Caprera has a fellow countryman of equal or even greater minigolf fame: Pat Sheridan aka The Putting Penguin. Pat has been reviewing minigolf courses since 2001 and also happens to be Editor in Chief of Minigolfnews.com. The impressive array of courses he has reviewed can be found on this Google Map.
At the moment Caprera is somewhere in Canada on his way to Anchorage, Alaska. So he seems to have reached the edge of the United States and just kept on going. Maybe he’ll putt his way right over the Arctic Circle and end up in Russia. We don’t know much about the minigolf scene in Russia, but if Caprera did find himself there, he’d blog about it. We wish him all the very best of luck, fun and adventure on his crazy golf tour.
Minigolf courses and clubs everywhere buy their putting equipment from the Putterfingers, the Minigolf Masters: putters, balls, obstacles, cups, and extras like scorecards and marker flags. We also hire out complete minigolf packages for parties, weddings, corporate events and charity fundraising. Browse our range of equipment here and our range of complete packages here.
Olympic Alligator Club Poke Shocker!
In other news, champ golfer and recent Open winner Henrik Stenson poked an alligator with his club during the Olympics.
We’d like to take this opportunity to say that we in no way recommend annoying large aquatic reptiles with sporting equipment. Especially not ours, as we like it to be returned to us in good condition. Preferably not chomped through by an enraged hellbeast from a Brazilian swamp.
Thank you, and remember we’re always here for all your putting needs.
