Maui Golf

We made it to the beach, and the only thing my son talked about the entire drive down was going to play miniature golf at Maui Golf. It is safe to say that Maui Golf is not the greatest miniature golf course out there. The obstacles are not very difficult and there are no moving parts like windmills or the like. However, it is the course my son likes so we usually end up there.

The reason my son likes it so much is because of its name, Maui Golf. He has a real interest in the Hawaiian islands and can name most of them along with their nicknames, like Kuaui being the garden island. He actually learned all these things by watching game shows and YouTube videos. He loves when contestants win trips to Hawaii. Playing miniature golf with my son is an interesting adventure in and of itself.

The concept of taking turns is lost on him. He will play from the tee until he knocks the ball in the hole. Most of the time, he doesn't even wait for the ball to stop rolling before he hits it again.  Keeping score is also a mute point with him, but we do it anyway.  It doesn't really matter what the score is, because he doesn't seem to have a competitive bone in his body.  Though he does get excited when he gets a hole in one.  I learn a lot about play from that guy.

  1. I know what you mean about your son making you a better person. Children look at life in an uncomplicated way....if that makes sense. Life can be as simple as you make it. Enjoy your time together. I hope you play more Maui putt-putt.

  2. we only got to play a couple of games which is unusual for him. He didn't seem to be his usual self
