Catskill Game Farm — Catskill, New York
Remnants of a simpler time when even horses could be an attraction having their own special area at the game farm.

The miniature golf course was awash in green – from the faux-grass putting carpet to the overgrown pathways to the filtered sunlight through the trees above – the area was very green. The 2006 price list indicated it was $2.50 per person to play.
As my visit to the Catskill Game Farm was at the height of the summer, everything was quite saturated with green and the bright yellow of the sun only added to the green hue. This image is the clubhouse entrance to the miniature golf course where the rules say “Play in groups of 4 or less, Maximum 5 strokes per hole, Ball may be moved 4″ from edge and Do not swing club above the knee…”
Just on the outside of a miniature golf area was this little souvenir stand – shut down while the park was still in operation, it was a sign of things to come. 20¢ each or two for 35¢
Be sure to check out this weeks Monochrome Madness Challenge hosted by Leanne Cole – where the theme was to find something in monochrome and render it in color.
As for me, here is my submission for this special challenge:
Almost every pavilion had signs up for Kodak film and nothing says end of an era like film sales. I wonder what size film they ended up getting stuck with…110, Disc, 126?
Posted with a smile to my buddy Lignum Draco who knows film…
A bright blue kiosk sits along side the entry path at the former game farm. From an old map of the site this may have been a place to purchase film and photographs. Most of the outbuildings were yellow and green – this one stood out with its bright color.
