City Park Set to Cut Ribbon on New Miniature Golf Course



For almost a year, City Park patrons have been watching the construction site across from Storyland and waiting with eager anticipation for the opening of the park’s newest attraction, a miniature golf course. 

 

Their wait is now coming to an end as the two course, 36-hole and 100% ADA accessible ‘City Putt’ is now ready to open its gates on May 24th, just in time for the long Memorial Day weekend.

 

“This is a very exciting course, it’s definitely not your parents put-putt,” said John Hopper, City Park’s Chief Development Officer.

 

The two courses are 18-holes each and carry two distinct themes, one focused on cultural themes from the state of Louisiana and one on New Orleans, featuring the iconic streets and city staples.  The grounds and greens will feature lots of landscaping, flowing water and water features (or hazards if you will on some holes.)  Holes bear names of New Orleans streets and Louisiana landmarks, displayed in traditional New Orleans street tile and as Hopper explains; “We snuck a little learning in along the way…like you can find out exactly how Magazine Street got its name.”

 

The courses themselves are said to be challenging and fun, suitable for the full skills scope of putt-putters, from amateur to professional (yes, there are actually mini-golf leagues out there).  There are clever tricks and different approaches to each hole; one hole in particular will whisk your ball down stream if you happen to hit it off course, so keep an eye out for those water hazards.

 

This year-round putt-putt playland will be open Tuesdays through Sundays from 11am to 10pm, with last call for rentals at 9pm.  Admission is a wallet-friendly adult price of $8 bucks and kids for $6 for one course, with an option to do both for $4 more.  The City Putt Clubhouse features two party rooms for birthdays and corporate events, and Hopper says the phones are already ringing with reservations.

 

“My guess is that this is going to be a very popular attraction, it’s the only course in town and a great place for parties and I also see a lot of dates taking place here.  Many memories will be cemented at City Putt,” said Hopper.

 

For the official ribbon-cutting, head over to City Park on May 24th at 10am for free popcorn and Arnold Palmers and be one of the first to grace the greens on City Putt’s inaugural day.  For more information, visit the City Park website at www.neworleanscitypark.com
