Walker Introduces the Artists and Teams of Mini Golf 2013: We’re In!

We wanted to wait until it was official but we’re happy to announce that the Walker Art Museum selected our mini-golf hole design for their Walker on the Green: Artist-Designed Mini Golf Course that will be located at the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden  right next to the FlatPak house. Our hole, Can You Handle This?, is one of 15 holes that will make up the two separate 7 hole courses that share a final hole. You can see some renderings of what the rest of the course will look like at the mnartists.org blog and check out the first bit of circulating press. There are a number of incredible artists who were accepted and we’re eager to share the news. Obviously, we’re looking forward to playing (and reviewing) the course many times  this summer!

The hole we designed, “Can You Handle This?”,  incorporates some fun elements of classic mini golf, challenging play, an opportunity to get a hole-in-one. Most importantly, it fits the overall “garden” theme of this year’s course. We wanted to make a hole that we’d get excited to play and looking forward to watching others try their luck on it.  The renderings below will give you a better sense of how play will work.

Players have the option of hitting up a loop de loop into a watering can to get to the lower level.
Those who can’t “handle” the loop have the option of going a safe route to the left of the loop…but will miss out on a chance for a hole-in-one!
If you take the loop, you have a 1 in 3 chance of landing a hole-in-one.
