Mini Golf Course Planning, Construction and Operation

In the Indian context, Mini Golf is a popular game played on courses consisting of a series of holes, usually a multiple of 9 or 18. The courses are characterized by their short length, typically within 10 yards from tee to cup. Mini Golf in India often utilizes artificial putting surfaces such as carpet, Astroturf, and concrete. The courses have a geometric layout that requires non-traditional putting lines, including bank shots, and incorporate artificial obstacles like tunnels, ramps, concrete/metal/fiberglass forms, and moving obstacles such as windmills.

While the international sports organization World Mini Golf Sport Federation (WMF) prefers the name "mini golf," different countries, including India, have their own names for the game, such as miniature golf, mini-golf, midget golf, goofy golf, shorties, extreme golf, crazy golf, adventure golf, and mini-putt. In India, there is an opportunity to promote mini golf as an adventure sport and entertainment activity for both kids and adults. It can be introduced at schools, holiday destinations, malls, tourist spots, public parks, and community clubs.

For those interested in developing a mini golf course in India, MINI GOLF INDIA provides comprehensive services to ensure feasibility and successful implementation. The process begins with a site visit and data collection, including soil and water sample analysis to assess the physical and chemical properties of the area and its surroundings.

The planning and coordination phase involves preparing all the necessary details for the construction of the mini golf course, such as bill of quantities, proposed estimate, enlisting contracting agencies and suppliers, and creating a construction schedule using the critical project method (CPM) network. Feasibility reports, budget information, and locally available material details are shared with the designer to create a sustainable and financially viable golf course and driving range.

During the construction or installation phase, MINI GOLF INDIA ensures high-quality project management services, adhering to requirements and delivering within the specified timeframe and budget. This includes activities such as surveying and stacking of golf boundaries or fencing, site clearance, earthwork, construction of lakes, cart paths, bridges, and refreshment points, as well as the shaping and creation of golf features like greens, bunkers, tees, and fairways. Installation of irrigation and drainage systems, pump sets, and pump houses is also part of the construction process. The formation of the soil profile is done according to specifications using the best agronomical practices. Grassing and planting, along with the installation of synthetic turf, complete the construction process, and the mini golf course is then ready for operation.

MINI GOLF INDIA also provides maintenance and operation support to clients, including marketing and sales promotion assistance and training for site staff on how to maintain and operate the mini golf facility.

Quality measures are given utmost importance, with a commitment to operating the business according to the required systems and implementing a quality management system to continually improve effectiveness. The skills of management and staff are enhanced through regular reviews and an ongoing training policy to achieve targets. The quality management system is promoted, and the policy is reviewed and revised as necessary at regular intervals.

By following these steps and ensuring quality throughout the process, MINI GOLF INDIA aims to assist clients in creating and maintaining a successful and enjoyable mini golf course in India.
