    People are creative. Especially people with a lot of snow in their yard and a lot of time on their hands. Some people build snowmen, others erect igloos, while dedicated fans create the Super Bowl teams' logos, and really ambitious kids build snow sharks.

    All that is impressive, but what can you really do with any of those skillfully-arranged piles of snow? Take pictures? Brag to friends about how those photos randomly ended up on some website? What's so great about that?

    How about a putt-putt course made from snow? Now that's ingenious and practical. And it's been done. We just wish these guys were our friends. (Hole descriptions courtesy of the creators.)

    Hole 1a: Curved downhill to the fence, thread through and climb back up to the left.

    01 - Hole 1a

    Hole 1b: Nestled back in the left side of the green on a small plateau.

    02 - Hole 1b

    Hole 2a: Dog-leg left, watch out for snowmen.

    03 - Hole 2a

    Hole 2b: Just through these snowmen lies the cup.

    04 - Hole 2b

    Hole 3a: Straight shot down the hill, then back up.

    05 - Hole 3a

    Hole 3b: Tricky shot up the ramp.

    06 - Hole 3b

    Hole 4a: Go left and then right to play safe.

    07 - Hole 4a

    Hole 4b: Like risks and thinking about taking the bridge? Careful, the trap to the left is a one stroke penalty and a drop farther to the left.

    08 - Hole 4b

    Hole 5a: Straight ahead to ride the rail to the pin.

    09 - Hole 5a

    Hole 5b: Once you reach where the pole is, gravity takes over and feeds your ball into the cup.

    10 - Hole 5b
