The town with greatest number of minigolf courses? Myrtle Beach and some other American towns have more than 50 minigolf courses. In one town.

Actually there could be even more clubs in the Moscow Area, but my Russian is a bit rusty and I only used the ones where I could find the word клуб which means Club in the Moscow list at the Russian Federation site: http://www.rusminigolf.ru/mgolf/courses.html
My assumption is that the rest is just Courses without a club.
