There’s nothing like playing a fun 18-hole round of mini golf on a beautiful sunny day or warm evening under the lights. It’s even better when you’re playing on a Chuckster’s course. At the Chuckster’s in Alton Bay, the former Jay’s Bayside course has been reclaimed by Chuckster’s and offers holes that challenge and entertain, with plenty of fountains, bridges, stone obstacles and shade.
