There's just something about spending time playing mini golf that brings friends and family together. As a matter of fact, some of my best summertime memories involve playing the game, no matter how bad I might be at it. From first dates to Saturday nights with friends to taking my son for the first time to experience it for himself, mini golf has been a huge part of the warmer weather months of my life.

Do you remember the old golf course that was once on the Vestal Parkway where Serafini is now? I think it was called Taylor's Tiny Town.  Do you remember playing on the course and thinking if you took too big of a step back that you might fall down the hill? I only played there once about 20 or so years ago and yet that day is still cemented in my memory. That's the power of mini golf!
