There are about 300 recesses on one golf ball, and thanks to them, the ball flies three times farther than a smooth one. ... Balls of the same size...

Miniature Golf as Art – Part 1

Miniature Golf as Art – Part 1
 (Photo by Kickstarter)

One of the things we’re going to bring to the site is looking at how minigolf impacts more than just the competitive scene. It’s being used in a variety of different ways around the world to celebrate food, education, art, charity and sometimes even social issues. We hope to run a series of articles that touch each topic, to help promote the wide reach our sport has.

Our first article on this subject highlights a Kickstarter campaign that is looking to install a miniature golf course in Trafalgar Square in London. From the Kickstarter page: "For 1 week we want to take over Trafalgar Square, home to Nelson’s Column and the epicentre of London, transforming it into a crazy golf course designed by some of the world’s most renowned architects, artists and designers. It will be futuristic, functional, fun and free for the public to play."

While minigolf has been featured in other museums' art installations, this would by far be one of the biggest displays of minigolf as more than just a sport or family outing. Being set up in one of the most recognizable places in all of Europe, and showing off such great artistic designs, can bring some great publicity to our sport. Plus if you look closely, playing a round with a professional from the British Minigolf Association (BMGA) is one of the Kickstarter rewards, giving funders a chance to learn about the competitive side of the sport as well.

If you are interested in supporting the Kickstarter campaign the link is below.
