Par-King Skill Golf, Lincolnshire

#3 of 13 in Fun & Games in Lake County
Mini Golf · Fun & Games
Par-King originated in the late 1950′s in Morton Grove, Illinois at its founders golf range called 4G Fairways… George’s Gorgeous Golfing Garden. Soon thereafter, in the 1960′s, it was branded by the country’s leading trade magazine as “Minigolf’s Taj Mahal” and noted to be the most elaborate 18-hole minigolf in the nation.

In 1977, our current course in Lincolnshire opened, doubling the size of its predecessor and setting a new standard with its imaginative design and attention to detail.

Now with two 18-hole courses, 19 moving obstacles and 7 water holes you’ll find both a fun and challenging experience for pros and first time golfers alike.

  • $9 a person for 18 fun holes. It’s very clean & supervises. They wait to start the next group so people aren’t on top of each other or waiting around for the next hole. Best mini golf place around...  more »
  • Very fun place and extremely cheap. The colors are eye soothing. Great music. Awesome staff. 100/10 recommended. We’re going there again (Side note they’re a cash only place)
  • Par-King lives up to its slogan as the world's most unusual golf course. The course is extremely popular but is also very well maintained. Many of the holes are mechanical and require some skill (or luck) to make par. There are two separate 18 hole courses - the black course and the red course. When we went, they were using the black course for groups of two and the red for larger groups. My only issue is that they made us wait to start in order to prevent back-ups on the course, but they were calling groups up a little fast as halfway through we were waiting for a hole and had two groups waiting ahead of us plus the one on the course. Of special note would be that they do not allow children under 48" tall to golf here and they are cash only. There is an ATM on site.
