"All Over," maine - 2018  The dynasty of Tony yet again continued in the green, coastal state of Lobsta - Maine - for the 10 year tournament anniversary. Needless to say, we were especially looking forward to this milestone. The Mini Golf Guys toured main to hit all the courses and experienced what different parts of the state had to offer. Hands down, the highlight of this trip was the people. Definitely the people. Morgan of WABI TV 5 in Bangor helped to make our10X unforgettable, so we'll always think fondly of her and her colleagues at the station in Bangor, Maine. The list goes on though, from JC of Gifford's Ice Cream and his family, to Lee Stoddard of Dolphin Mini Golf, as well as those we met and chatted with on the courses. The next 40 have a lot to live up to, and we can't wait. The planning has already begun!     Winner: Tony.

Phoenix, Arizona - 2017  The dynasty of Tony continued in the sunshine state of Arizona as the Mini Golf Guys explored their largest metro area to date. Plenty of great mini golf, plenty of firsts and a great time was had by all on this trip. Some of the most notable moments include a cactus to Mike's back, a wonderful few nights in Old Town and an absolutely dominating performance by Tony.   Winner: Tony.

WICHITA, KANSAS - 2016  A scenic course on the Arkansas River (the locals pronounce it Ar-KAN-ZEZ, as in OurKansas) was the main stop on this wonderful trip. It ended with flames at Keeper of the Plains in front of a large crowd as Tony was awarded the new champion ring. The first time its been awarded. This actually happened in early 2017 because of a family emergency when it was originally planned in 2016.   Winner: Tony.

ROCKFORD, ILLINOIS - 2010  Rockford?  Say whaaaaaaaaaaaaaat?   "You three went to Rockford to play mini golf." We always hear.  This was our first year heading for our destination with our sole intent being to play mini golf. It was more than a success, with all courses in the area being played.

SPOONER, WISCONSIN - 2009  When most people think of Wisconsin, cheese and gas stations come to mind, but if you happen to make a pit stop in Spooner in your day, we promise that you'll be pleasantly surprised. If the camping, hiking, and rural feel of the area aren't enough to put you at ease - maybe you'll end up driving around to find something to do and come across an abandoned mini golf course.   We did, and it changed the course of this year's annual event, and all that came after.  No pun intended, as they say.  The annual mini golf tournament was born!  Just one example of the great ideas that can spring from friends getting together, collaborating and growing together.
