The Mini Golf Industry
Mini Golf was once an incredibly popular pastime in the US. It was one of the top outdoor summer activities for families and had a good run from the 1950s to 1990s. The activity has seen a decline in popularity over the past decade or so. Kids didn’t have the same interest in this old-fashioned activity.
Families didn’t have the income to spend on these sorts of treats. As a result, many independent mini golf providers went out of business. Childhood landmarks were mourned by locals that were simply no longer using them. Despite this drop in participation, there is hope for the future of the mini golf industry. Economic changes and creative ideas are building towards a potential resurgence in the activity.
