Avoid spendy property taxes with this deployable 18-hole mini-golf course, which floats on a series of interlocking 55-gallon drum platforms. Stacks nicely onto a flatbed trailer for relocation or seasonal storage.
The perimeter is not an immediate drop-off into the lake/river/sea, but rather a series
of guarded perimeter pads which slope into the water, so you can wade into the water without officially being off the course. (Reduces liability and chances of drowning deaths.)
Wave action is reduced by the steadiness offered by interlocking many platforms together, but assuming some buoyance effects would occur, the edge of each play area is slightly rounded up to avoid huge numbers of annoying "wall shots". Also, the holes could be designed to account for a little movement, so rather than large flat areas, there are series of slight hills and valleys you aim for, retaining an aspect of strategy.
Also sells ice cream cones and booze, at a hugely inflated price for water recreationists.

||And it better have a good anchor or the windmill on the seventh hole will carry the whole thing away from shore.
||haha, good call on the windmill factor
