Par-King Skill Golf has two 18-hole courses that will challenge you no matter your skill level. Several water hazards and almost 20 moving obstacles are just some of the reasons they're known as one of the best in the country. They would also finish pretty high in the 'most unusual setup' category.

This outstanding northeastern Illinois mini golf experience dates back to 1955, when it was called George's Gorgeous Golfing Garden and was located in Morton Grove. After more than 20 years in that location, they moved to Lincolnshire in 1977, to a spot with much more land. The Travel Channel called Par-King, "the most original course in America."


Pack it up and get on the highway before the summer ends. Par-King Skill Golf is located at 21711 North Milwaukee Avenue, Lincolnshire, IL. For more details and some pretty amazing pictures, visit their Facebook page. For hours of operation, prices and to book a tee time, visit
