Hike and play with a lot of fun
They have sounding names, such as “Sautrog”, “Plumpsklo” or “Käseplatte”, can be found in the middle of the forest – and are a lot of fun. We are talking about GaudiGolf. Similar to playing miniature golf, only with a wooden club and wooden ball, players are in the great outdoors moving from station to station.
Fox and hare play GaudiGolf
Already at the beginning we meet “fox and hare”, which stand here peacefully together and wait for the hikers. The station is more difficult to play than it seems. Everyone has the same chances, big and small need marksmanship, patience and a dose of luck. After the score is entered in the card, you move on to the next figure.
Hay cow Elsa does not play yet
After a fierce winter, the stations are now all playable – only hay cow Elsa looks very sad. The figure was made of iron and hay, the wooden ball is sunk with momentum in the “rear” and then Elsa spits it out again. But nothing comes of it yet, because her “coat” of hay is almost completely gone and the iron frame bent:
Elsa and the strong men
That’s where help is needed! The first thing to do is to get Elsa out of the forest and into our “hay workshop”. This is done by the reliable construction yard employees of the municipality. They are our helpers when we need strong men to transport the hay figures. Thanks for this!
Now Elsa’s legs have to be straightened again. How fortunate that Rupert Rettenbacher, who also helps run the local history museum, is a trained locksmith! With a lot of patience and a hammer, he gets to Elsa. A few well-aimed blows on the front hoof and Elsa stands upright again.
Next, Elsa needs a good base. The wood on which it has stood until now is softened and no longer needed. Carpenter Harry Schober screws Elsa onto a new, beautiful pallet and supports her hind leg with a piece of wood.
New hay dress for the GaudiGolf cow
Now Elsa just needs to be dressed well. Barbara, Vroni, Monika, Elisabeth and Regina wrap the “sick” leg, skillfully fill the holes and even make new horns for the hay cow. Soon she will be able to play GaudiGolf again. After work Antonia also brings coffee and cake to strengthen the hardworking ladies.
Time to play!
Ready! Now Elsa can go to her place in the forest with the other GaudiGolf figures. Many thanks to all who helped to bring Elsa “back to life”. But now it is finally possible to play. Where you can find Elsa? Click here for all the info about the GaudiGolf course. Have fun playing!
