A new pop-up mini golf course is coming to Durham's American Tobacco Campus, and it's a huge step up from the game you played as a kid.
Bull City Mini will be the Triangle's first community-designed mini golf course. Each of the nine holes will be designed by a different local artist or creative around the theme of "Durham Landmarks in Miniature." Designers include a team of local middle school students, a ninth-grader from Chapel Hill, several working artists, a team of Duke medical school student, Triangle-based tech professionals, and a handful of creative Durhamites inspired by the project.
Plus, there will be a bar serving local beer, wine and frozen beverages for adults and kids. In other words, not only can you come have a blast with your friends drinking and playing everyone's favorite sport in the sun, you'll also get to appreciate some art along the way. (And we imagine the whole course will be super 'grammable to boot.)
“Our vision for this project is recreation as art and art as recreation," says one of the founders, Julie Bryce. "We’re hoping for humorous as well as thought-provoking submissions, given Durham’s rich history and passionate residents.”
Just want to get your putt-putt on? The course, which will sit be partially indoor and outdoor in the former Bullpen space on Blackwell Street at American Tobacco Campus, will open in May of 2019 and be around throughout next summer. Follow @bullcitymini for updates as the project comes to life!
