Mini Golf is a game that has been around for well over 100 years.  In fact, the first known record of it stems from a 1912 edition of The Illustrated London News, which introduces a minigolf course called Gofstacle.  The game became so popular that at one point in the 1920s, there were over 150 rooftop courses in New York City alone.

The game has taken on a whole new life recently, with the television show Holey Moley.  The 10-episode reality TV series based around the classic game first aired in 2019, and is hosted by  Joe Tessitore, color commentator Rob Riggle, and sideline correspondent Jeannie Mai.

Pardon the pun, but let's get back to....reality.  Here in the 21st century, the game continues to thrive.  There are currently an estimated 875 to 1000 mini golf courses located here in the Empire State.  So, which ones are the best in Western New York?  Here's what we found.
