Community-Designed Mini Golf Course to Open in Durham
Submissions due Dec. 19
Durham’s American Tobacco Campus will soon have a new tenant when Bull City Mini, the Triangle’s first community‑designed pop‑up golf course, opens in April 2019. The course will feature nine mini golf holes and obstacles, as well as a shipping container bar, and will remain open through next summer.
Husband-and-wife founders Julie Bryce and Ben Owens, both of whom live in Durham, were inspired by mini golf courses in San Francisco, Austin and Minneapolis. “The Triangle needs more recreation — activities that encourage you to get offline and get outside, put down your device and play. Mini golf is affordable, doesn’t require any special skills or preparation to play, and is fun for all ages” Owens says.
Artists and creative members of the community are invited to submit designs for one of the nine mini golf holes or obstacles. Entries will be judged and winning submissions will be professionally fabricated for durability. Submissions are due Dec. 19. Designers of selected holes will earn a $500 stipend and be offered perks, such as free passes and exclusive invitations.
