Let's Play a Mini 9

The Glenlivet City Links course is back! Glenlivet, the scotch whisky makers, have set up a free 9 hole minigolf course downtown.
Housed on the ground floor of a non-descript black windowed office building, the course is a fake grassy respite from the big hair orange tanned hustle and bustle of the nearby Staten Island Ferry terminal.
The par 3 course is actually pretty difficult- the greens are long (for miniature golf anyway) and they have sandtraps and undulations. One hole even has a water hazard. No windmills or loop de loops here. Unfortunately, they were not giving out any free Glenlivet, so no getting loopdy looped either.
The city links course is only open for one more day- tomorrow from 11-2:30p at the corner of Whitehall and State Street before moving on to Atlanta, Houston, Denver, San Francisco and Philadelphia. It only takes about 20 minutes to play and is a lot of fun, so stop by on your lunch hour.
