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...

Shhh...Library Minigolf - Part 1


United States of America 25 Jul 2016 at 01:13 | Published by: PatPenguin | Views: 7102 | News search

Shhh...Library Minigolf - Part 1 What do libraries and miniature golf have in common. For one, both tend to want you to be quiet while taking part (although we all know minigolfers can be quite the rowdy bunch when things are going their way) and second, both can be enjoyed by people of all ages. So it's no surprise that minigolf events are popping up in libraries everywhere as a way to raise funds for these civic establishments. Libraries are in some ways perfectly suited for minigolf with large floor space, plenty of straight shots through stacks and obstacles (chairs, books, desks, etc) that are easy to integrate into a whole design.

Like with any charity event, these library set-ups come in a couple of varieties. The first is having a professional group come in and set up the course. There is one company, Library Mini Golf that specializes in these types of events and this is featured in the article about Schertz library. At The Putting Penguin we recently had an opportunity to play a Library Mini Golf course and the link to our review is below. The second type of course is where the library or even the participants build their own holes, usually incorporating items from the library or library theme. In the link to the Charleston library golf, we see that the participants building the holes were asked to reuse items from around their home when making creative holes, so as to reduce the impact of purchasing new materials.

With the cost to the library being fairly minimal, especially if they go the homegrown route, it's easy to see why a minigolf event is a perfect way to raise some funds. In addition, the indoor nature of the event means that it can be held any time during the year and isn't going to be too impacted by adverse weather.

Know of any libraries or other public institutions in your country that are using minigolf to raise awareness or funds? Send an email to patsheridan@minigolfnews.com with the information and we may feature it in an upcoming article.
