Random Terrain's Tetraternarium - Skee-Ball "Golf"

Recommended Posts

In my Protection for Bad Home Putters blog entry, I described my little home miniature golf setup. We had to put it away when we lived in an apartment, but now that we're in a house again, we got it back out.

We were saving up money to have a guy mow our yard, but he never found the time, so I had to do it. My sister said we could spend some of the money on something fun and while we were out shopping the other day, we stumbled upon an officially licensed Skee-Ball tabletop game. It comes with 5 wooden balls. Each one is almost the size of a golf ball, so we thought we could play Skee-Ball Miniature Golf at home, especially since we got out the putting mat just a few days before. Here's a photo showing one of the wooden balls next to a real golf ball:



Unlike the Callaway Kickback Putt Cup, the Skee-Ball game doesn't return the ball, but it's not difficult to pick up the balls with a grabber.

Here are two photos of our Skee-Ball Miniature Golf setup:





I made a video with my aging HD video camera:

A long, straight putting mat: http://amzn.to/2mHnVqQ

If you don't want to or can't bend over to pick up the balls, you'll need a grabber: https://amzn.to/2Uw1XbV

If you'd like to have more balls, you might want to get some practice foam golf balls since real golf balls are too heavy: https://amzn.to/2MwLFMV

Disclaimer: Use this home version of Skee-Ball as a miniature golf game at your own risk. I am not responsible if you damage the wooden balls or the game or break a window or something else. Use your brain and be careful.
