I remember seeing an article in the Mathematics Teacher by a teacher whose
students designed a miniature golf course.  The class was divided into
groups and each group designed a different hole.  So I went to


and searched for "miniature golf+math".  Here's some of what I got:

This one brings miniature golf into the classroom in a very simple but
effective way.


This one describes the process and has lots of links.  The internet was used
a great deal.


This one has a careers slant to it.


This teacher's class built a few holes, too.


There are so many more sites.

Thanks for asking. I am thinking of doing aspects of this in my room next
