A golfer's life for me
A few months ago, I tried to arrange a field trip to play mini golf on a boring Sunday afternoon. There was a major hurdle standing in my way: Portland's mini-golf options are limited. I made a few calls. One place had shut down, another was too far away and a jaunt down to Bullwinkle's in Wilsonville seemed like more trouble than it was worth.
During my search, I found this website. Glow-in-the-dark, blacklit mini-golf with a pirate-theme? Sure, it sounded great but would the concept ever come together?
Low and behold, Glowing Green Blacklight Mini Golf is set to become a reality at, according to a post over on Metroblogging Portland, downtown on SW Taylor. I couldn't find a grand opening date but the place could open its doors in as little as a few weeks. Here's a link to their MySpace page.
The place looks fantastic and will look even more fantastic if the owners ever opt to start selling beer ala Ground Kontrol. Now if we could only get an over-21 Chuck E. Cheese-style venue going around here, that would really be something. Who says swimming pools filled with plastic, neon balls should be just for the under 8 set?
