Editorial Reviews

From the Author

One common worry with this book is losing the balls, which are pretty tiny.  Fear not!  They're metal, and very shiny, and show up well against carpet and wood (this has extensively been tested by two preschoolers).  If the worst should happen, they're ordinary 3/16" ball bearings, which you can get online or at any bike shop for very cheap. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

My best friend and I used to play a LOT of miniature golf years ago, so I bought this as a b-day gift for her. When I got it, it was WAY more clever than I anticipated. You really do have to see it. The pages are intricately designed and built, and that makes them challenging to play. One hole in particular (the hedge maze one) will drive you nuts. Even the text in the book is informative (when true) and funny (when not-so-true). Again, it's so well-made that there's a certain "wow" factor when you flip through it. This thing would be perfect on someone's desk at work.

I love this book! It's a book about miniature golf and actually is a miniature golf book (new Shimmer is a floor wax and a dessert topping!). Complete with a club and balls, you're ready to play. I bought a copy for myself and my father-in-law. When is the sequel coming because I want to play 9 more holes.

When we saw this book in a store, we thought it was gimmicky -- but our child thought it looked fun. And, boy, is it fun. The book -- or should I say "9-hole micro-mini-golf course" -- is very well-made, and has some very clever design features. Kudos to the author and publisher for putting (no pun intended!) together a quality product. We will be looking into other books by this author!

Jokes aside, this book is awesome and me and my brothers are often picking this up to see who can putt the lowest score. I often do one hole over and over trying to get the lowest score possible on each hole, so the we added a permanent marker dot to indicate the exact starting point for each hole, so you don't have to flip the previous page back, we are really technical on ball placement, lol. Overall, great book, and great idea you had here. Awesome.

I don't even know how I found this product... but I'm glad I did. I bought it as a stocking stuffer for my husband and he got a kick out of it (he's competitive and likes a challenge, especially mind challenges like this one). I have even enjoyed taking my turn at a few rounds of play. Usually small games like this are flimsy, cheesy, and overall not quite as fun as anticipated, however, this nifty little book is really amusing. Since each hole is challenging the games has not become boring yet.. a well spent $10!

This thing is awesome! It's a nifty coffee table book that just about anyone can pick up and play! It's sort of unsteady, but balances well enough since you really only need one hand to swing the club, so you can hold the book steady. Has two small steel balls for golf balls, so be aware if you have small children or pets.

A fun distraction and easy pick up and play game for adults and kids 5 and up. It does come with two "golf balls" (little metal balls) that can easily get lost if hit too hard. I did wish it came with a second club. I ended up cutting the spine though so I could get a flatter surface to play on. It's not a perfect setup with laying even, but overall it's well executed and I'd suggest it as a fun little gift with slightly curbed expectations.

This book is adorable and fun. It was a cute Christmas gift for my roommates sisters boyfriend. While he wanted to get him a mug, I got on Amazon and hunted down a few gifts I figured a 25 year old would appreciate- this adorable book and a set of golf club pens. It's just too much fun and he loved it! It's a unique gift that any golfer can appreciate.
