We're trying to kick start the new year right by returning to some of our series that feature looks at miniature golf in non-competitive arenas. We're headed back into our piece that highlights the impact it can have on our communities in Part 8 of our "Bettering the Community" series. If you missed Part 7 last year, you can visit it here. We start this review with two articles that look how miniature golf has played an impact in a youth's life by helping him achieve the rank of Eagle Scout in the Boy Scouts. For those not familiar with the program or rank, to achieve Scouting's top honor an individual must plan and execute a community service project, leading other scouts and adults to accomplish the goal.

The team at Minigolfnews appreciates everyone who continues to follow us and our quest to further the sport of miniature golf around the world in conjunction with the World Minigolf Sport Federation (WMF). We know the second half of the year here was a little slow with articles and blogs and we're looking at ways to increase the content in 2019. As always, if you are interested in helping out, even if in a limited capacity, please reach out to Pat Sheridan at patsheridan@minigolfnews.com. We hope that everyone has an enjoyable holiday season and can find some time to hit the mini-links in your area (whether indoor or outdoor depending on your location). More and more courses are using this time to "dress up" holiday fashion, so it's great to give them a visit. We're looking to have at least one more article by the end...

A new book about miniature golf has just entered the libraries of many putting lovers around the world, just in time for the holiday season. Amazing Strokes is a 600 page tome that is a testament to the length and breadth of the history of miniature golf and its expanse across the world. You can purchase the book on the author's page or over at Amazon, which might be most convenient for international orders. The book is part minigolf encyclopedia, part factual history and part oral history straight from the mouths of the players, course owners, organizers and other miniature golf fanatics. There’s plenty of pictures throughout the years, showing how the sport has matured. While the focus is primarily the United States, the book does devote significant pages to miniature golf worldwide. As Editor of this fine website and Co-Founder of The Putting Penguin...
