Mini golf as playable art? Yes, at the Boca Raton Museum of Art

The Boca Raton Museum of Art in Mizner Park is featuring a fully playable mini golf course, with holes designed by artists from across the U.S. including Florida.

There’s more to miniature golf than faux pirate ships, windmills, tunnels or other clichés of the vacation pastime.

As it turns out, mini golf can be fine art. Who knew?

Through Oct. 14, the Boca Raton Museum of Art in Mizner Park is featuring a fully playable mini golf course, with holes designed by artists from across the U.S. including Florida.

This exhibition shows that golf art isn’t limited to paintings or Pete Dye. A diversity of materials (one hole is made out of recycled pallets) and imagination (another hole is played inside an enormous hole cup) is on full display, with every hole completely playable. Check out some of the pictures here to get a sense of the creativity.

Clubs and balls are provided by the museum.

The Boca Raton Museum of Art is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Friday (open until 8 p.m. on the first Wednesday of each month) and from noon to 5 p.m. on weekends.
