Would use only non-violent animals. (No big cats or bears.) Same placid, semi-boring enjoyment of regular mini-golf, only you get to see zebras, tailed pheasants, camels and cassowary as you play. Fences and wire blocks prevent the balls from straying into animals' area. Different holes and obstacles could have a different theme for each proximal animal. You could buy hay or peanut-feed along with your balls and club. Also would be more of a workout, as the course would have to be rather large.

       Lots of spinoff possibility here.   

       Mini golf art museum?   

       Mini golf movie theater?   

       Mini golf fitness trail?

       ...and (I'm surprised no one'sthought of this before) the Mini Golf Treasure Hunt! - Use your combined golf club/metal detector to find treasure hidden around the golf course.   

       Actually Crazy Golf (windmills, ramps, etc.) would be a nice intermission during regular golf - once all players had got their balls on the green the remainder of the hole would then be decided not by putting, but by a Crazy Golf match.   

       Disclaimer: I have never played golf in my life.

       Mini-golf lap-dancing?   

       I'm sorry.

       What's a "cassowary"?   

       Answer (thanx to egnor and msn): A cassowary is a large black flightless bird of northeastern Australia and New Guinea that resembles an ostrich or emu. It has colorful wattles and a large bony head shield.

       See link above. (Now you just need to do this to Lemon, and we'll complete the cycle.)   

       It's apparently, like, a big ostrich-like bird thing.

       Monkeys or baboons would make an interesting obstacle in themselves. Just train them to steal the ball when it rolls their way, or throw it somewhere, or something.   

       Or, get a bunch of dogs with an overdeveloped need to 'fetch'....
