I’ve got a like-hate relationship with mini golf: While I’ve hardly ever even played real golf, for some reason I think I should be waaay better at mini golf than I am. I started up a mini golf tourney at work ages ago at the Village Green in Natick, came in as the runner-up a bunch of times, but never could win. My boss beat me once while carrying a colleague’s baby on his back. The tourney is no more, though there were rumblings recently that I should restart it…
That brings me to this weekend’s Wellesley Free Library second annual A Hole Lot of Fun indoor miniature golf event, which uses hallways, stairs, stacks and every floor to transform the main branch into an eighteen-hole course. More than 550 people young, old and in-between played last year, all in the name of raising funds for the Wellesley Free Library Foundation.
Local organizations sponsor the event, including a practice green and hole-in-one contest. Among raffle prizes is a football signed by New England Patriots’ Coach Genius himself. The Kidville band will play at the 19th hole on Sunday from 10:30-11:30am.
Saturday, January 30 from 5pm to 8pm
Sunday, January 31 from 9am to 1pm
(Please note that the Main Library will close at 2pm on January 30 to allow for event set-up.)
Individual round of golf: $7.00
Group of Five: $30.00
Children under the age of 10 must play with an adult.
