Original Mini-Golf Holes Designed by Area Professionals

The Museum invited firms and individuals to sponsor, design, and construct a hole with the theme of “Building the Future.” Many participants have formed teams with other building industry professionals to make their hole as dynamic as possible. The Museum will present a Best in Show award, determined by a jury of design experts, and players will vote for the People’s Choice award.
