New Mini Golf Kit alternative to concrete-built courses offers advantages

Adventure Golf Services (AGS) is introducing “Modular Advantage Mini Golf,” a new modular 9- or 18-hole miniature golf course that looks and feels like concrete but isn’t, and offers the same playability and fun as a traditional concrete course for less cost. The course can be purchased either as an owner-installed kit or as a turnkey installation. It is ideal for FECs, parks, campgrounds, hotels, resorts and other businesses interested in adding an entertaining, revenue-producing or amenity attraction to their facility.

“Miniature golf has always been an in-demand, family-friendly attraction with a healthy return on investment, and our goal is to help owners improve their bottom line even more,” says Scott Lundmark, President of Adventure Golf Services. “The Modular Advantage is just what the name implies – it provides owners an alternative to a concrete course that looks and feels like a traditional mini golf course and costs less.”

According to the company, the Modular Advantage is an economical, prefabricated course using an interlocking, flexible, patented panel system that offers many benefits to the owner. The system provides excellent drainage with no water ponding from rain, eliminating the need to squeegee the greens and fairways before reopening the course – a quick-dry, no mess system.

Weather is not a factor during installation, so spring, fall or winter installations can stay on time, and the owner has the option of installing the course using a templated kit, thus reducing more costs. One new benefit to the owner is that the modular course can be moved, minimising the investment risk on leased land.

“Less time on the job means fewer installation hours,” says Lundmark, “And, that translates to more savings for our clients. All-in-all, it’s a tremendous alternative to traditional concrete-poured courses. Plus, an owner can relocate the entire course to any other location.”

The base course features 4,000 square feet (1,219 sq m) of playing surface and fits into a minimum of 13,000 square feet (3,962 sq m), according to CEO & Chief Designer Arne Lundmark. Two other upscale options will feature 4,800 and 5,400 square feet (1,463 and 1,646 sq m) of playing surface and can be sized to fit larger footprints. The new system is also an efficient and cost effective way to help owners with miniature golf renovation projects. Adventure Golf Services is currently renovating a course using the panel system and, as a side benefit, saving the owner more than $60,000 (€52,872) in soil remediation costs, due to poor soil conditions where concrete cannot be used.

AGS is a global leader in the design, fabrication and installation of fun, interactive, cost-effective entertainment attractions like Miniature Golf, Pickleball, Shuffleboard, Bocce Ball, Croquet & other recreational courts. Besides concrete-poured installations, AGS has long term experience installing interlocking panel system versions on rooftops, cruise ships, indoor waterparks, and other outdoor applications, such as amusement parks, family entertainment centres, hotels and resorts, and other attractions.
