Miniature Golf Courses of America is a 7" single released by American ska punk band Five Iron Frenzy in 1998 on Asian Man Records.[1]

Overview[edit]

The 7" consists of a ska punk cover version of Swedish pop group ABBA's song "Mamma Mia", as well as two tracks from Five Iron Frenzy's previously released albums: "Arnold, and Willis, and Mr. Drummond" from Upbeats and Beatdowns and "Handbook for the Sellout" from Our Newest Album Ever!, both released in 1997.

The album's cover and title are direct references to Lake Charles, Louisiana lounge singer and former singer of Chase Gee Gee (G.G.) Shinn's garage rock album titled "Putt Putt Golf Courses of America Present Gee Gee Shinn And His Band", released in 1967.[2]
