A mini golf center in England at Boscombe Pier in Bournemouth now has golf balls that feed the fish! The 18 hole mini golf course features Ecobioballs. When dropped into water, the golf balls biodegrade within 48 hours and contain food that feeds the fish.

The mini golf course is part of a larger attraction on the Boscombe Pier. As a player meanders along the course, the 18th and final hole has a special feature. When you putt the ball into the hole, it drops through the pier and into the ocean, feeding the fish.
