Mini golf returns to Minn.’s Walker Art Museum

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Golfers can tee up again on the Walker Art Center’s new artist-designed miniature golf course in Minneapolis.

The Walker has brought back mini golf to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden this summer.

But it’s not your traditional mini golf course. This course features garden gnomes masquerading as foosball strikers, a scale model of a French chateau and gopher holes.

Winning proposals for the two eight-hole courses came from a group that included architects, artists and engineers. Two more holes were designed by students from a University of Minnesota public sculpture class.

Walker on the Green is open seven days a week through Sept. 8.
