Harris Mini Golf is the Jekyll & Hyde of companies: while some of their courses are fun and creative, others are frustrating and boring. And then there is West End Creamery, a course that seems to fall somewhere in between, depending on what type of mini golfer you are.

Many of the holes are in upwards of 30 feet long. As a result, you usually end up hitting your tee shot "wicked" hard. The ball caroms off the bricks, and you hope that the ball stops in the vicinity of the hole. Luck is much more important than skill. While the cups are top-notch, the carpeting is horrible. It can be difficult to gauge the proper speed of a short putt, and it's impossible to read several of the greens.

If you don't take mini golf seriously, you'll probably enjoy the experience. If you play competitively and want to be rewarded for finesse shots, this course will frustrate you to no end. I guess it's fitting that the course is located on Purgatory Road.

Beautifully built and kept course. Some challenging holes. One of them is actually designed to give you an advantage by hitting it in the stream --it will carry it right down to the hole. Found it to be especially fun due to the atmosphere, landscaping, and surrounding property.

This is a well maintained course that provides a pleasant break along RT 146.  It is right near Purgatory Chasm. Not particularly difficult, but enjoyable none the less.

A real waste. The course is so uphill you just take a shot and pray. It looks like it was designed by the three stooges.
