What is Lightning Mini Golf?

Lightning Mini Golf is a collection of small (usually one hole) miniature golf courses that are built on private land (often between the sidewalk and the street) but are 100% free for anyone to play and generally available at all hours, all days and all seasons.

Lightning Mini Golf was created to give people something free, fun and different to do walking around town.

A QR code can be found at the courses to donate to the project. Donations support construction and maintenance of the courses, and ALL additional funds will be donated to charity. 

Right now that charity is the Animal Friends Alliance.

Where are these courses?

Right now, Lightning Mini Golf is just in its birth town, Fort Collins, Colorado at these addresses:

  • 128 N Whitcomb – around the corner 529 Laporte Ave
  • 130 N Whitcomb

Who is behind this?

Matt Gettig

Hi! I’m Matt. For years I’ve been doing landscaping/irrigation and custom lighting. One day I decided to make the space between my sidewalk and the street a landscaped and night lit one hole golf course.

I wanted it to be absolutely free and give people something fun to do walking around town.

What started on a whim has gained enough traction that I decided to make it official and see if this completely free new fun project can also help fundraise for good causes.
