The most common type of approved tournament minigolf courses in the world are miniaturegolf courses. These courses are mostly built using fibre cement. These courses require less space - a complete tournament course of 18 holes could be built in 600-800 m2.
To set up the course, you can select from 28 different types of holes. You will find these courses in many cities and holiday sites all over the world.
They are very popular and eventhough the holes are quite short, many people are surprised at how difficult some holes can be. The miniaturegolf courses require some maintenance in early spring after the winter, but if you are a club, all the members of the club could get the entire course ready for playing quite quickly.
You are not allowed to stand or walk on the course/obstacles, but this is not necessary to play.
