More than any other summer, we've had fun playing miniature golf.

Before school starts, try one of these fantastic miniature golf courses in Ocean County, chosen by you:

Top 5 Miniature Golf Courses in Ocean County, Chosen By You

Take the whole family and do all 5 in one day. Nothing says summer fun than a fun, competitive night of miniature golf with the whole family. We have some of the "best" I've ever played right here in Ocean County. I'll take the pink ball or maybe the orange ball. Sorry, but pink usually brings me good luck.

I know, I know I tend to cheat a little bit by kicking the ball in the hole. Every time I play Shawn Michaels, he says I cheat. Maybe, because I always win.  Abby now realizes I cheat, I'm a horrible Mom. I think I've created a cheater now in mini-golf.(Yikes, I know it's terrible).

Most miniature golf courses have 18 holes, some have more. Then, of course, most of these have an ice cream shop right next door, stop by for your favorite scoop. It's the perfect summer night.

Growing up in Pennsylvania, we had one miniature golf course. Here in Ocean County, there are tons. Most of the fabulous miniature golf courses are next to the beach and that makes it even more special. Miniature golf here in Ocean County is so much better than where I grew up in Quakertown, Pennsylvania.

Abby and her friends play all the time. I'm so happy to hear them say, "We're going to play miniature golf." I think it's so cool. Teenagers love it.
