From Pebble Beach to Augusta National, there are many beautiful golf courses all across the country and in Minnesota. 

None compare to one unique mini golf course in Minnetrista. 

Big Stone Mini Golf is part golf course, part art gallery and part zoo. 

Nearly three decades ago on a former hayfield, owner and artist Bruce Stillman started building his dream.

"Kind of the philosophy here is make everything creative," Stillman said.

The land has a 14 hole mini golf course and 70 sculptures, almost all created by Minnesota artists.

The property also has several animals. 

"We have about 14 goats, 25 chickens, a big horse, a mini mule, a Scottish Highlander cow and sometimes the chickens will be walking around the golf course," Stilman said. 

You still have time to visit Big Stone Mini Golf, it's open through the end of October.
