The Illinois funeral home with a mini-golf course underneath

People love miniature golf. Every year, millions across the globe putt their way around an endless array of obstacles in the pursuit of bragging rights. Few players, however, would describe it as a sport to die for. Yet at one unique venue in Illinois, death is par for the course. Welcome to Ahlgrim Acres, a macabre mini-golf experience buried underneath a funeral home.

His other favorite – trumping the ones with a moving guillotine, a life-sized grim reaper-like figure, and even a water trap – features Ahlgrim’s very own miniature mausoleum. Engraved on the tiny gravestones that players must avoid, are various names marked with their respective dates of death. Nothing out of the ordinary there, until you discover they are the names of Ahlgrim Family Funeral Services’ still-very-much-alive funeral directors.
