Miniature golf, once a staple of Charm City’s ocean front resorts, will soon return, thanks to a combined effort from students at the Baltimore Lab School, Baltimore Design School and Margaret Brent Elementary.
The students designed an eight-hole course in the Station North Arts District. The golf course is scheduled to open on the first day of Artscape, July 21 and close in early October.
The pop-up course, dubbed “Station North Mini Golf,” will feature artificial turf, quirky obstacles and holes designed to replicate sneakers, Baltimore’s Arabbers and video game characters.
The students worked alongside local artists, Megan Lewis, Jose Roserio-Curet, Samantha Redles and Dave Eassa to bring the idea to life.
Baltimore-based FutureMakers oversaw the design process, as OpenWorks oversaw the construction and Gensler & Associates converted the drawings into practicable designs.
The project was funded by contributions from philanthropies, local organizations and the Nation Endowment for the Arts, which donated $35,000 for the cause.
