About this Episode

It's been long overdue that we sit down with fellow minigolf enthusiast Richard Gottfried, he of the Crazy World of Minigolf Tour and a Guinesss World Record holder. Given the massive amount of courses Tom, Pat and Richard have visited and their overall pulse on the industry, this episode focused on the trends we are all seeing in recreational minigolf. We talk electronics, bar-tainment, chains expanding and more on different gameplays and course styles. There's speculation on the cycles of minigolf and where we might be when it comes to this business that certainly seems to be in a boom. There's even talk of pirate dinosaurs! We also talk quickly about some of the upcoming AMA events and the expanding AMA 2024 schedule.
