Whew, I’m tired. I just finished an 18 hole round of golf. Being mini-golf it did not involve much walking but it did take me a lot of strokes. The course rules are only in Czech so Karin and I made up our own as we went along. We each maxed out one hole at 12 strokes yet we also had a few pars at 2 strokes. We did not score the 18th hole because the players behind us were waiting.
Karin is very familiar with the last hole because every missed shot makes a distinctive thonk! sound. Her desk sits in front of a window that she usually keeps open so her afternoon is frequently punctuated with thonks! So there are pros and cons to living in an apartment over-looking a mini-golf course.
When construction was first started last autumn we worried about noise but that proved groundless. Other denizens of the park make far more noise through the night and early morning. We did enjoy watching the step by step progress as the course took shape through the winter. It was completed while we were away this summer.
The green fees are 140 Kc ($7) for adults and reduced fees for seniors, children and families. Each hole has a shelf for resting your sustaining refreshment as you battle your way through the many tricky shots.
As a footnote for real golfers: Prague and the Czech Republic have many fine golf courses with relatively low-cost green fees and un-crowded conditions.
