In late 2015 the Grosse Pointe Woods City Council approved the Foundation’s plan to build a miniature golf course in Lake Front Park. The Foundation will fund and oversee installation, with the course to be owned and managed by the City. The City does intend to charge a fee for play in order that the course is self-sustaining.
The miniature golf course will be a fun, outdoor activity for Grosse Pointe Woods residents and their guests from mid-Spring to mid-Fall. It will be enjoyed by pre-school children to senior citizens, whether with families, friends, or in recreational leagues. The design will include nine contiguous handicap-accessible holes. A nautical theme will be enhanced by a lighthouse, a bridge, and water features. The course will be located adjacent to the Activities building in Lake Front Park, providing restroom, snack and beverage machines, and a comfortable viewing area.
We hope to have the course built and opened in 2017. Funds are needed, however, to create this exciting addition to our city’s offerings. Please consider “getting in the game” by making a donation!
Your support of the mini golf course will provide many hours of fun recreation to Grosse Pointe Woods citizens and their guests of all ages. All sponsorships of $200 and above will receive permanent recognition at the course site.
