photo: RIC DUGAN / staff photographer Cissy and Larry McQuait of Hagerstown just got started playing putt-putt golf last summer. "It's so much fun," Cissy McQuait says. Also it's relaxing and different, she adds. Cissy McQuait recalls playing miniature golf for the first time when she was about 10. She thought it was better to have a higher score, so she cheated to raise it. Larry McQuait used to play real golf, and Cissy McQuait has hit some holes in one, but neither of them is very good, she says.
