Mini Golf Guys bring laughs, charity to Williamsburg, Virginia Beach
Michael Babcock squared up on the green, grasping the orange child-size golf club and training his eyes on the last cup of the 18-hole mini golf course.
With a gentle putt, Babcock sent the pink golf ball rolling toward the cup, hoping the hole could win him the game — and missed. Behind him, Anthony Haakenson took his shot as Babcock covered his face with his hands, landing his yellow ball in the cup.
“I was doing really good … you know what the keyword of that sentence is — ‘was,'” Babcock said.
Putt-Putting Through Virginia
After traveling to 50 states, The Mini Golf Guys are bringing their mini-golf tournament to Richmond.
For several days, co-founder Michael Babcock and his two longtime high school friends, Alex Cram and Tony Haakenson, will be playing mini-golf matches in and around Richmond, at courses like Hotel Greene and Glowgolf in Glen Allen. The three have several other stops booked in Chesterfield, Williamsburg, and Newport News, before they finish their trip in Virginia Beach on August 11.

For Michael Babcock, Alex Cram and Anthony Haakenson, surprises — and traditions — have come in unusual places.
In 2009, the three college friends stumbled upon an abandoned mini golf course while on an annual camping trip in central Wisconsin. Making light of an odd situation, they grabbed a set of golf clubs from the back of Babcock’s vehicle and started to play the game.
