ok — it’s taken me a couple weeks to decompress from the install, openings, road trip, and catching up with sleep & work, but i’m finally ready to post photos of the entire course.
what’s more, you can call 801.349.3498 to listen to a super-nifty cell phone audio tour. once you’ve called in, simply dial each hole number followed by the # sign (so, for hole 3, you’d dial 3#) to hear each artist talk about their golf hole for about 1.5 minutes.
so, without further ado, i give you holes 1 through 6 of contemporary masters, artist-designed miniature golf. all photos were taken during the public opening reception, june 18, 2010 at the salt lake art center. the next two posts will showcase holes 7-12 and 13-18, respectively.
