Make A Big Impression With A Mini Activity

When I think mini golf, childhood summer days are the first thing to come to mind. However, after visiting the Walker on the Green: Artist-Designed Mini Golf course, I’ve been shown that mini golf can transition into a new, adult-friendly option for the entertainment and décor of your next event. The Minneapolis Walker Art Museum invites you to relive summer vacation.Screen Shot 2014-12-27 at 3.46.54 PM

The creative and unique experience was designed by 29 artists, architects, collaborative teams and mini-golf mavens. Originally planned just for the summer, the Walker recently extended access to the green to September 28. Each hole of the 9 or 18-round course presented an innovative take on the design, making each putt a topic of conversation. My favorites included a gum-ball machine and a replication of constellations. Hole 9 was also one to remember, this life-size pool table required golfers to lift their clubs onto the table and putt or to shoot them like pool sticks.

Even better, if this experience leaves you wanting more, the Walker offers free gallery admission with each golf ticket. Guests can also visit the famous spoon and cherry sculpture, along with many others, in the adjacent nine-acre Minneapolis Sculpture Garden.

Perfect for events, the course offers arriving guests a chic deck complete with cozy couches to lounge on while socializing or awaiting other attendees. The deck’s tan décor with accents of lime green epitomizes summer, and creates space for an effortless pre-event cocktail hour. The course can be reserved for parties or special events of 50 guests or more.

Neighboring Loring Park, between downtown Minneapolis and Uptown, this prime location promises great options for dinner and drinks before the event, and exciting night-life options after. Loring Kitchen is a personal favorite for happy hour or dinner, and is just outside Loring Park.

Summers in Minneapolis are what drive me, and every other resident, to stick out the cold come December (read: late October). Allow the summer celebrations to last past Labor Day by hosting your next event at this fantastic venue!
