Miniature Golf in Church: 0050.0680

“MINIATURE GOLF” BUG HITS CRANBROOK HARD. – Course In Old United Church Building Drawing Good Crowds Since Opening Monday.

            Monday night saw a crowd of almost 300 people at the new public miniature golf course opening in the old United Church building at the corner of Hanson avenue and Louis street.  It was a jolly crowd, and the new game seemed to go over well.  Messrs. Wilson and Blakeman have the place fixed up, with an eye top the artistic, and everything required on the full sized course can be found there.  Mr. Blakeman explains that he has out in light obstacles to start with, but will add the more difficult ones when the players become more accustomed to the game.  However, right now players will find the turn bridge, the swordfish, the punk hole, the two-in-one tunnel, the whoopee-whoopee, the up and over and other retarding features.  The place has been receiving good patronage since it was opened.
