PROBLEM:
How can we attract patrons inside with an indoor miniature golf course?

SOLUTION:
The game has changed—miniature golf is not just an outdoor activity any longer. Nor is it played only in the daytime or under high-power lights. Indoor miniature golf courses provide shelter from heat, humidity, rain, snow and other adverse conditions. They can be modeled after outdoor courses, or they can be radically different, such as newer glow-in-the-dark courses.
