Fort Kent Recreation Department constructs public mini golf course

FORT KENT, Maine — The Fort Kent Parks and Recreation Department has enhanced summer activity options in the town with the addition of a new mini golf course.

The nine-hole course is located in a fenced area behind the town pool next to Fort Kent Community High School on Pleasant Street. 

The mini golf course is anticipated to increase visitor traffic to the pool while offering the community another opportunity for a family outing, Parks and Recreation Director Jason Nadeau said. 

The location of the mini golf course is also logistically sound, because the pool building is already fully staffed during the course’s hours of operation, Nadeau said.

Those who want to play mini golf can obtain balls and clubs from town pool staff at $3 per person for nine holes.  

Nadeau ordered the course from Adventure Golf & Sports out of Michigan.  

“It came on three large pallets. My summer staff and I assembled the course and brought it over to its summer home,” he said. 

The mini golf and fence were separate orders and totaled around $20,000, which came from the department’s reserve account. 

The mini golf course is open from noon to 4 p.m. Monday to Saturday, and from 6 to 8 p.m. Monday to Thursday.
