Thanks to Jimmy, Neil and their crew from Elk Mountain Construction, the clubhouse is nearly completed.
And Harris Mini Golf is working on the last three holes. Then the turf layers will be onsite to complete the greens in just a few days. Richard and Kyle have done a fantastic job getting the 18 incredible holes laid out and built.
We anticipate opening for the first weekend in August.
The harrisminigolf.com guys, Richard, Kyle and Arron worked hard to make up time from the cold and wet weekend. We now have six holes in. Soon we will be laying down green carpet.
We also started our perimeter fence with Handhfenceco.com, Merritt and Leo worked hard and fast. They were so fast that they may have to give us a few days to finish the perimeter rock wall. The three rail fence really catches your eye as you dive by.
This weekend,the snow, rain, sleet and hail set us back a few days. However, today we have hole 11 and 12 laid out. And tomorrow hole 16 will be laid out as well. That means Wednesday we will have a total of 6 holes waiting for “grass”.
Welcome to the newest family activity that Grand Lake has to offer. Those folks that call Grand Lake their summer home know; that Lilli Putt, the iconic miniature golf course, closed it’s doors several years ago. Now when you visit Grand Lake you have a new adventure to test your skills on the greens. Make plans this summer to create new family memories with your children and grandchildren on your next visit.
Lance Maggart of the local newspaper Sky-Hi News announced a new miniature golf course in Grand Lake. The article can be found in the Sky-High News archives from November 25, 2018.
A highlight of the article recalls the long time dream of building and operating a miniature golf course. Or as they called it in their college days Put-Put golf. On their trips from Grand Junction to Grand Lake they would stop in Glenwood Springs and play a course that had a hill and a river flowing down it. They always walked away wishing they could own it or something similar. Well it seems that they made that dream come true.
The summer of 2019 allows the couples’ dream to come to life in Grand Lake some 30 plus years later and guess what it’s on a hillside and has a stream running through it.
