The miniature golf course on Lake Seferan is the first of its kind being established by TIFF as part of its Tourism EcoCluster on Lake Seferan, Belsh. This is a new recreational variation of the long golf courses, new in Albania.
Miniature golf, also known as minigolf, or putt-putt, is an offshoot of the sport of golf focusing solely on the putting aspect of its parent game. It is played on courses consisting of a series of holes (usually a multiple of 9) similar to its parent, but characterized by their short length (usually within 10 yards from tee to cup), the use of artificial putting surfaces such as carpet, a geometric layout requiring non-traditional putting lines such as bank shots, and artificial obstacles such as tunnels/tubes, ramps, concrete/metal/fiberglass forms, and moving obstacles such as windmills.
Take your family and come over. Stay for a day on Lake Seferan and see how competitive you really are.
