Cards Now Played like Midget Golf (Jul, 1931)

Cards Now Played like Midget Golf

THE latest addition to the ever increasing list of games devised for the amusement of incurable golf fans is a combination of midget golf and bridge, played on a carpet spread out at the bathing beach for games between plunges.

The unique carpet on which the game is played has painted on it a circle containing card symbols on which various card numbers are inscribed. In the center is a cup, and the objective of the player is to score by driving the ball into it. If he misses, the ball rolls onto a section representing another card.

The carpet can easily be rolled out on the beach for a rubber at any time.

    “a rubber at any time” ???

    And when exactly did “Midget Golf” turn into “Mini Golf”?

    Rubber as in a rubber of bridge – ie a match, a “best of three” or such.

    The proper term is now “Little People Golf”.
