On a really rainy day, real golf isn't much fun. But the kids can have a great time playing miniature golf while it's raining - and stay dry doing it - if you find a miniature-golf course with a roof over it.

On Ocean City's Boardwalk, Gillian's Wonder-land Pier opened an indoor mini-golf course in April.

Two blocks south on the Boardwalk, Ciarra Dougherty, 15, of Philadelphia, was finishing up Under The Sea Miniature Golf on a sunny day, but she's sure kids would enjoy the covered course in the rain. She liked the black-light setup that casts the whole course in a neon glow.

And a few more blocks south, Medieval Fantasy Black Light Mini Golf has "seven holes of black-light, six holes indoor and six outdoor," worker Steve Chapman said. "I call it the value pack in mini-golf."
