I'm pretty sure that basically everyone who has ever played mini-golf has lost a ball or at least failed in other entertaining ways. The ones you post don't have to be entertaining, they could be so bad that I feel really sorry for you. XD

This is the place to share any fails you made in mini-golf! Have fun and don't cry.

I don't play mini-golf often, but when I do I fail
a lot. One of my greatest fails from recently is this. There was a giant wooden triangle filled with rocks in the middle of the green. When I hit the ball, I bounced it right in there.

Speaking of rocks, another fail involving rocks happened that night. Every hole is surrounded by rocks, likely as decoration and to prevent your ball from bouncing right into the water. Well, this time I had a gray ball and I bounced it into the rocks. Almost every rock was gray or white so it took me longer than it should have to find the ball right in front of my face.

At least I got an accidental hole-in-one during the first game!

Me and my maternal family used to spend the summer at a certain place where my uncle had a small house. There was a mini-golf rather close, and we used to go there frequently. It's been ages since then, but forever in my memory will remain the last hole.

It was basically a couple of straight sections to build up speed with the hole on the center atop a small mountain, which we nicknamed "The Volcano". Basically, shoot the ball in any trajectory that isn't fully straight, with too much power and/or with too little power and the ball goes nuts. I don't remember many people clearing it, but trying dozens of times to clear it was bloodily fun. Balls going up and down the hill, running through the whole path, and of course, going off-bounds.

There's also a mini-golf near to my aunt's house, but I don't remember going there. Maybe I should go and see if it's possible I got any worse at playing it xD

I have been to crazy golf a couple of times... and most of the time it can be very mundane and a bit boring unless you are constantly heckling friends for being bad or just having some good banter with each other... 

The thing that popped into my mind when I read this thread though was when I was playing mini golf absolutely bored with a friend and we just started being a bit too aggressive hitting the ball... I ended up basically breaking a large rock on the boundary of the course... and the golf ball flew up into the air and over a spiked 6 foot fence.....Luckily we managed to get the ball back... but it certainly made me calm down and behave my self a little more indeed.

EX Palen: That definitely sounds really fun! Well, the worse you become at playing it, the more entertaining it is for you and whoever is with you XD That's why I'm actually glad not to be good at it. Doing well would take the fun out of it.

Sonicmcmuffin : I don't think it's boring, but that could just be because I don't do it often. I find it hard to believe the ball ended up breaking a large rock
and flying over that fence. That would be sweet on camera. :P

That would make me act like a complete sophisticated gentleman if that happened to me... after I catch my breath from dying of laughter.

The first feeling was that of fear for breaking property honestly... Then after we realized that no one saw it we began to laugh it off and  actually play the game properly... I was 14 at the time and full of sugar...  lol...

Once upon a time when I went to a mini golf course, I was getting really frustrated losing so much to my dad that I hit the ball way too hard. The ball sailed way over the course and into the water, never seeing the ball again.

There's also an area earlier where the hole was on a hill and I couldn't get it in for the life of me. I had like 10 over par on that hole.

pacman1755 : Thank you for bringing this thread back to life XD Oh man. It's very easy to hit a golf ball too hard and my friends and I have learned that the hard way.

The holes on hills are what everyone dreads the most in mini-golf. There's something so amazingly frustrating about trying to hit the ball just right on a hill. Usually what happens to me is that I overshoot the ball and it ends up rolling down the other side of the small hill.

I rarely play mini golf, but whenever I go down to the Outerbanks (in North Carolina) for vacation, my family and I always go to this one mini golf course once every trip.

This one time, I was the last one to do my initial stroke and I ended up using a little too much force (it was one of the uphill courses) and it flew over the hill, ricocheted off of one of the rocks and bounced into the water. Thankfully, this was the 14th-15th hole, but I did end up getting a new ball and continued on like nothing happened. I'm pretty awful at mini golf, but I'd never done anything this ridiculous before.

SacredShadow : When I go mini-golfing, I almost always go to the same course every time too. I like that because it gives me an accurate picture of just how amazingly bad I am much I've improved or worsened since my last visit.

You pretty much did a failure trick shot, meaning you messed up with style so it's automatically cool XD I'm not that good at mini-golf either. I got a hole-in-one without really trying before, but I barely ever score one on purpose.

My Mini Golf Fails. Well there was one that was memorable and my friends still laugh with me over it to this day. 

When I was in high school my old  church's youth group would go to Talladega for youth camp. Well for about 4-6 hours we had free time. There was a recreational place we all went too. You could swim, play mini golf, play tennis, play in the field, play volley ball,  or play on the water ride in the lake. Well one day I was playing mini Golf.  

I just swung at the ball and when I hit it the ball went all the way past the tennis courts. My friends chanted home run, my other friends who were playing tennis looked up in disbelief. Then we all laughed and I realized your not supposed to hit the ball real hard.

tornadocam : The way that went down just made me laugh out loud. For me, most of the funniest/weirdest things that ever happen to me happen at youth group events. Like when I stayed at a lock-in at the church where the youth group is held. At 3am I got a boost of adrenaline since my body was confused as to why I was still up that late. I became very hyper and I'll never forget the reactions my friends gave me. One looked genuinely concerned for me, and one just laughed XD

My friends and I often make jokes about other sports when we're playing games, like if I throw my basketball over the backboard, "OH FIELD GOAL!!!"

I think many people need a warning before playing mini-golf that it isn't baseball or hockey :P The ball doesn't just come back when someone hits it into the water. :D
