What in the world is that? Well, out on the grounds of the Walker near the Sculpture Garden, there are two 9-hole courses that are creatively designed by artists with different themes.
About once a year I usually enjoy a good game of putt putt. The first time I played with a group of friends on a Florida trip, we laughed our way through the whole course. And some of the laughs were directed at me. I had trouble minimizing my swing. I would step up to the tee, brandish my putter and everyone dove to the sidelines.
"Why does everyone run away when I get up to bat?" I asked.
"Think about what you just said," my spouse called from several feet away.
Below are just a few of the themes at the Walker course. The Artist Designed Course is open until Sept. 1. Admission includes a one day museum pass. For more information click on this link.
|The stars in the constellations become obstacles.|
Try to hit the musical instruments embedded beneath the rock.
|Be a Sculpture|
Opponents stand on the footprints to help or hinder the putter.
|Right on Cue|
Use your putter like a pool cue.
|Wield your putter on a ping pong table.|
The paddles can either help or hurt your score.
|Tricky! Opponents can move a board into the open hole that you've been aiming for in the past four shots, and then you have to aim for a new one.|
