In 1928 there were just 2 miniature golf courses but by 1930 there were over 25,000.  Rooftops in the cities were converted to miniature golf course.  Over two million people were playing the game every day during the craze.

  • nrauch@npr.org Added The music behind the announcer was also used to accompany "The Champion," a Charlie Chaplin film from 1915 (for a reissue after sound films came in, probably late 1920s/1930s). Would love to find out the source of this music and if there are any recordings in existence.
