No longer must you journey to Towson, Perry Hall or Jessup to play mini golf – for this summer and early fall, at least. Station North is getting its very own putt-putt course, thanks to four teams of city students and artists, as well as some brilliant architects and the folks at OpenWorks.
The eight-hole Station North Mini Golf course is set to open on Friday, July 21, smack in the middle of Artscape. The endeavor has been more than a year in the making. Station North Arts and Entertainment District received a $35,000 National Endowment for the Arts grant, along with some added funding from four public and private entities from around Maryland, to make it happen.
The course will be situated in a formerly vacant space at the corner of N. Charles Street and E. Lafayette Avenue, right in front of artist Freddie Sam’s mural of Table Mountain that went up in 2012. The mini golf spot will remain open with varying hours through early October. City schools students can play for free, while admission will be $5 for everyone else.
