Putting the FUN back in Funeral


If you love mini-golf but hate funerals then I have a place for you!  Ahlgrim’s Family Funeral Home puts the FUN back in FUNerals.

They offer a wide variety of funeral packages and they all come standard with a game of miniature golf.  In the basement of the funeral home is a nine hole course, known as Ahlgrim’s Acres.  You can check out the photos here.

The course includes obstacles such as coffins and headstones, with a one stroke penalty for bypassing the coffin on Hole #2. Screams and spooky music play continually.  I can’t find out what the other services include – I wonder if they will do themed funerals?

Anyway, if you ever find yourself in Palatine, IL and want to play a game of ‘haunted’ mini-golf you know where to go…don’t worry you don’t have to kill someone to get to play a game. If a funeral isn’t in progress you can go play a game of mini-golf without purchasing one of their death packages.

I need to run, I have to call my parents to see if they have created their funeral plans yet, fingers crossed they have not because I have the perfect location for their services…..
