Juan De Anda/SF Weekly Turning the San Francisco skyline into a mini-golf course.
Steve Fox sure knows how to play a mean game of mini golf.
From getting the grip just right on the putter to navigating the obstacles in every hole, mini golf has truly taken over his mind and life. In fact, he and his wife are truly possessed by the sport.

"I'm a big mini-golf man and starting in '93, my wife and I would host these mini-golf extravaganzas where people would design golf hole and we'd built them," Fox said. "They become more and more elaborate as time went on. We'd have tubes going through the walls from upstairs to downstairs. I almost destroyed the house many times. It was very much like Burning Man Put Put."
He even quit his job as a professional journalist after 35 years to pursue mini golf full time.
But instead of keeping it be a personal obsession, Fox is turning his passion into San Francisco's first indoor mini-golf course that has interactive kinetic sculptures depicting San Francisco landmarks, history, culture fused with Jules Verne/ Rube Goldberg steam punk. The mini-golf course will also feature an adjoining restaurant and bar area.More »
