There are few attractions that are more common and classic than a mini-golf course. Whether you are looking for something to do with your kids on a Saturday afternoon or need a great first date idea, mini-golfing is always a good option. And while it might seem simple, the sports complex design that goes into a mini-golf course can often be complicated. Sports complex design is always important, but for a complex like a mini-golf facility, the aesthetics of your facility will play a huge part in your success. Today, Sports Facilities Advisory will look at some sports complex design tips for your mini-golf course.
Why Is Sports Complex Design Important For Mini-Golf?
Sports complex design is not something that many people think about when it comes to mini-golf. However, with any sports or leisure complex, the design plays a major role and one could argue that it is even more important for a facility like a mini-golf course. Everybody remembers their local mini-golf course they used to play on back home thanks to their unique design.What makes mini-golfing memorable is often all of the flashy obstacles and design elements that go into making the course. Whether that is the classic windmill or more complex water-based obstacles, having the right design elements can help separate your course from the competition.
Knowing Your Target Audience
Another thing to keep in mind with mini-golf courses is the target audience of your course. While mini-golf can be enjoyed by people of all ages, your course will most likely cater to young kids with their parents and teenagers. Knowing that changes your design thought process.For instance, designing a course that looks like an actual golf course would appeal to older golfers, but for young kids and teenagers, this is not all that entertaining. They want loud colors and crazy obstacles. Understanding who your target audience is will be the first step in designing a great course.
Keeping It Fun
Lastly, the most important thing to remember when designing a mini-golf course is that it should be light-hearted and focused on fun. While it can get pretty competitive on the course, people come to your facility to have a good time. Design your course in a way that it conveys that light-hearted attitude.
