Any Epic Mini-Golf in the Suburbs?

I have some friends that love to do this Mini-Golf thing a couple times a year. We've been to the place on 75th (Woodridge?), and the one in Bolingbrook by the airport...and several others in this general area that I can't remember.

Are there any Mini-Golf places that are really Epic out here? Trying to stay less than an hours drive, but looking for something different.

There is one on North Ave (north side) just west of that huge church in Wheaton. I think the park district owns it.

And I don't think the word epic and mini golf applies to towns that are not vacation destinations in Illinois.

Understood. I was just hoping there was something out there that was above average at least.

Not epic. Just regular mini golf. I think there is a Putt Putt mini golf up north. Skokie?? On Oakton or Touhy??

I came here to drink some beer and kick some ass. And it looks like we are all out of beer.

Haunted trails is decent. Played it a zillion times, always good, but not epic. PGN (named after the owners three children, Paul, George, and Nancy) used to be epic, sadly it's run down. I haven't played there in a few years, I'll check and report back next time I stop by my moms house.

There was one out RT30 by Aurora but haven't been there in years. Also had go carts. Maybe someone will know. Near 30/34


I'm sick of following my dreams. I'm just going to ask them where they're goin', and hook up with them later!!

I'm a mini golfer for life. LR, you have a good sized back yard, make your own.

Mandy knows a place by the house. She will chime in later.

I would...we could use the dog piles as obstacles, and the varmint holes as putting greens. But it's not very epic, even when drunk.

There is one in Des Plaines ... I'm not sure what are you expecting, but it's very well maintained and it's really nice. I enjoyed playing there. I don't remember the name but here it is

There is a glo-golf in Joliet mall. The place I told Dave about is the one by the airport.

Do the Par King during the day and then get smashed and do the cosmic one across the street.
