I hope you give it a second chance. I would prefer this for family viewing on summer television.
When you were young and played your first round of miniature golf , did you dare to dream there might be a fun challenge to Pursue this hobby with your friends or family for a lifetime?

Saw it, cute though nothing spectacular. I’ll watch again, works just fine as summer entertainment. As for Disney creating a similar course, not a chance they’d risk that liability. I’d gladly take another regular mini golf course, but since the two (well, four since there are two courses at each location) aren’t usually full I sincerely doubt that’s anywhere in the plans.

Thanks for reminder .
I confess I have never played the Fantasia Gardens Or Winter Summerland Courses on WDW property. The Winter summerland looks fun but Fantasia very dated. Plus with all the construction in the area for new Swan Dolphin Resort.... this would be good time to update Fantasia. I guess I will check it out soon.
Can anybody tell me their preference?
Do you think it is time for update ?

I have yet to try Winter Summerland but Fantasia Gardens still in good shape. I opt for the whimsical course every time (the alternative is more “professional”). Always fun.

Please. The staging was necessary and was only highlights. That ending win was better than current pro golf just watching her talk to herself and instructing herself on camera was inspiring.
The problem to me is the ending seemed fake - very scripted to me. That's why I didn't like it as much.

I missed it tonight as I am looking for a new fridge to replace my POS that died under a year. I won't avoid it, but I won't go out of my way to watch it.

Well shopping for a frig and extended warranty does sound tempting but even a bad round of golf beats that.
Good luck with your evening.
That drill sergeant in your face was great. And the “sports commentator/ comedian/ actor was in the Marines. So having the Sergeant stare him down was funny before the commercial break.

I wonder if I can find it on demand just to see.

But yeah the fridge is not fun. We're going out soon (my son and I) to see if we want to switch styles. 2 French Door styles haven't lasted near as long as I hoped. At least the last was under warranty which is why we are getting an accomodation for it failing to work properly less than a year in.

Who knew there were "professional" mini-golfers?!?!

I am very amused by this show, although I have not liked either one of the winners. The one who won last night was my least favorite of all of them.

The fans look like they are freezing! I looked it up and it was recorded in southern California in April. I guess I didn't think it got parka-weather cold then!
