Mini Golf Grand Re-Opening Celebration Planned for July 1st
The Jaycees are excited to announce that their mini golf is open and that a Grand Re-Opening Celebration has been scheduled! There will be a presentation beginning at 11 am and the Ludington/Scottville Chamber of Commerce will perform a ribbon cutting ceremony at around 11:45 am. Refreshments will be available.
The public is invited to attend and enter to win a family-pack of 5 mini golf passes. Cost to play this year is $7 for adults (in honor of the Ludington Jaycees’ 70th anniversary), $5 for children (in honor of the Mini Golf’s 50th anniversary), and free for kids under 5. The theme of the course is “Landmarks of Ludington”, encompassing educational and historical obstacles and highlighting local attractions.
The Ludington Area Jaycees’ Miniature Golf Course was opened in 1967 for the purpose of generating funds to support community projects. Since that year, over $300,000 has been donated by the chapter to local initiatives. Proceeds from the mini golf are only used to support local charitable organizations and causes with zero dollars going toward the Ludington Area Jaycees’ chapter projects.
Some of the major projects the Ludington Area Jaycees Mini Golf Course has supported over the years are: West Shore Community Ice Arena, a birthing room at Spectrum Health Ludington Hospital, Copeyon Park Fish Cleaning Station, Ludington Recreation Soccer Field on Bryant Road, Mason County Recreation Football, emergency equipment for Ludington Fire Department, Waterfront Park Playground, the Skate Plaza, Stearns Park Accessibility Walkways, Ludington and Mason County Central High School’s Music Departments, White Pine Village Music Museum, among many others.
