Yes, this is for real. And yes, it is so freakin’ awesome.
It’s the secretly infamous, miniature golf course Ahlgrim Acres, in the basement of Ahlgrim Funeral Home. On our recent Chicago trip we finally made it up to Palatine to experience this amazing, oddball gem. Originally built for their kids back in the 60s, the 9 haunted holes (complete with spooky music) are open to the public; when they’re not conducting services, that is. More info below.

If you’re anywhere near Chicago call Ahlgrim’s and make an appointment to play golf. They’re super-nice folks. And it’ll give you one of the most random experiences ever.
