  • Miniature Golf

    The greens of the two miniature golf courses at the Lippold Park Family Golf Center welcomed golf enthusiasts for the very first time in July 2003. Harris Miniature Golf of New Jersey, the premier miniature golf course builder in the United States, built the courses. The addition of the two 18-hole miniature golf courses to the existing driving range is part of the Crystal Lake Park District Master Plan, published in 1999.

    One course, Sports-N-Courts is handicapped accessible, has a sports theme and is a par 40 course. The second course Tees-N-Trees, is a par 41 course and has a prairie theme.
