Take a standard billiards table. Add bumps, ramps, obstacles, bridges over streams, windmills, etc. Make sure all horizontal surfaces are still covered in felt.

Now play pool on it: standard pool games like 8-Ball or Cutthroat.

This is merely minigolf using a pool cue. [drzeus, Oct 01 2010]

       You could take it to the next level as PinPül, including bumpers, flashing lights, extra cueballs, and a slight incline to the table.

       I can see this as a series of 18 tables with ever-increasing amounts of obstacles. You tee off at on end of the table and try to make it onto the pocket at the opposite corner in as few strokes as possible.

       I ran this a project for a group of my students a few years ago - ie design a snooker table that incorporates the features of a crazy-golf course. Some of the results were fab.

       Cool. Any pictures [xenzag]?   

       Agree with [2_friesl], please post some, if you're able & permitted.

       I don't like it.

       [Dr. Worm]: that already exists (see the link). I'm going for something more towards the billiards end of the spectrum.

       You need a more frictive surface than felt, to prevent the balls pooling, as [21Q] suggests. That would make it a little more like golf, with difficult lies created as balls stop on sloping surfaces.

       //need a more frictive surface// [bungston]'s variant is an alternative solution to the same problem.
