The History of Miniature Golf

Geoblog Bearings has an excellent overview of the history of miniature golf.  Starting from the Romantic era of the late 1800s, the history of game is traced through its various evolutions including the mom and pop businesses that seem to infest any tourist trap, to how the "sport" came to be taken over by corporations.  Give it a read, and then share if you have any fond memories of miniature golf yourself.
