A look at a Parlor Golf putting game from the 1930s.
We love finding and showcasing games, interesting items, ephemera, stories and history from the world of minigolf.
The Crazy Golf Museum is home to a number of fun, old and interesting items.
Yesterday I posted about the Parlor Golf game
made by Parlor Golf MFGR. Co. of La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA in the USA.
Today's putting game for Minigolf Monday is the Putt-In-Play set by Gibbs Toys of Canton, Ohio, USA.
|A 9-hole set up of Putt-In-Play|
Also known as The Parlor Golf Game, the 9-hole wooden set has a nice range of obstacles to putt through.
The Putt-In-Play set originally consisted of the 9-holes, two wooden shafted 5 1/2" putters with metal heads, six steel golf balls, rules, blank score cards and a golf bag.
It's ace to look back at historic items from days gone by. The Putt-In-Play layout looks quite similar to Beton and Eternit types of miniature golf that were created in the 1950s and are still very popular in Continental Europe.
Do you have a favourite miniature golf game, or know of any others?
Visit the Crazy Golf Museum website for more minigolf toys and games.
Having received a question about the size of this parlor golf set, the dimensions are as follows:
- The straight lanes are 12" long x 4" wide.
- The dogleg lanes are 6" long x 8" wide.
