MINI GOLF – a social practice: H#8
Lee Goreas: Straight and Narrow
This public installation combines aspects of mini golf with regular golf. My approach to this project was design a hole that incorporated the natural and pre existing features of the site/landscape. I wanted to draw the audience’s attention to the mundane, sights and sounds of the location. My intention was to create a hole that was absurd, minimal, site specific, difficult to play and humorous.
“I am not saying my golf game went bad, but if I grew tomato’s they would have come up sliced” – Lee Trevino.
- This is a par-2 hole
- For a minimalist mini golf hole, this hole can be tricky.
- Tee-off from the perimeter of the box.
- Note: The concrete is sloped to allow for drainage, a hole-in-one does not require much force.
