Brooklyn mini-golfers have surprisingly few local outlets for practicing their noble sport: Bushwick Country Club’s course is more dilapidated Bushwick than country club, and Brooklyn Night Bazaar has recently died and taken its glow-in-the-dark indoor course with it.
The Fulton Mall Improvement Association hopes to bolster this sad mini-golf scene: it’s just put out a call for proposals for a mini-golf course to be built at Albee Square Plaza on DeKalb Avenue between Fulton and Bond streets, as DNAInfo reports. It wouldn’t be permanent–proposals have to be for courses that are easily moveable to storage.
Since the plaza is a public space, the mini-golf course would be BYOB (bring your own balls)–anyone with the right gear could start a pick-up game any time. FMIA has also put in a request for a liquor license, hoping to sell beer and wine in plastic cups, so your putting practice can coincide with happy hour.
