A miniature golf craze sweeps America in the 1920s, and Tudor City, ever the full-service community, has its own 18-hole version. An inspired publicity stunt, it's touted by the French Company as "the most expensive course for its area in the world, occupying land worth over a million dollars." Read more about it here.
In 1930, the golf course is dismantled and the lot re-landscaped into the South Park. To compensate, an indoor course is installed in No. 5 that same year. It has a brief run, closing in 1932, concurrent with the waning of mini-golf mania.
