BUILT INTO A BEAUTIFULLY landscaped hillside, the
18-hole Gaithersburg Miniature Golf Course leads golfers past
artsy animal sculptures, rocky streams and a tiered waterfall.
While there are some hole-in-one opportunities (the putt under
a penguin), aiming the ball through a lion statue’s legs, dodg-
ing water hazards and attempting a bank shot over a double
bridge are all decidedly more challenging. One of the back
nine holes features a steep downhill putt that’s a favorite with
kids, who love following the ball down the slope. The course
is in the heart of 57-acre Bohrer Park—home to a skate park,
picnic areas, walking trails and a water park—so it’s easy to
expand a putt-putt outing into a full day of fun.
