Miniature golf has been called numerous names since its inception. A few of these name are: goofy golf, midget golf, garden golf, pitch and put golf and shorties. In 1867, at St. Andrews Golf Course in Scotland, miniature golf was invented. It was originally intended as a women’s game, because golf was too masculine and inappropriate for women to play. The 18 hole course was called the Himalayas. Miniature golf courses then began to show up at hotels. These courses were designed to be 1/10 the size of actual golf courses. The golf courses played today began to evolve in the 20th century, with the carpet instead of grass.
