Jaycees mini golf to hold grand re-opening July 1.

LUDINGTON — The Ludington Area Jaycees will hold a grand re-opening of its Stearns Park mini golf course on Saturday, July 1 at 11 a.m. The event will include a ribbon cutting by the Ludington & Scottville Area Chamber of Commerce at 11:45 a.m.

The Ludington Area Jaycees’ Miniature Golf Course was opened in 1967 for the purpose of generating funds to support community projects. Since that year, over $300,000 has been donated by the chapter to local initiatives. Proceeds from the mini golf are only used to support local charitable organizations and causes with zero dollars going toward the Ludington Area Jaycees’ chapter projects.  

The organization recently renovated the course and has re-opened it with theme “Landmarks of Ludington,” which encompases educational and historical obstacles that highlight local attractions.

The public is invited to attend and enter to win a family-pack of five mini golf passes. Cost to play this year is $7 for adults (in honor of the Ludington Jaycees’ 70th anniversary), $5 for children (in honor of the mini golf’s 50th anniversary), and free for kids under 5.

Some of the major projects the Ludington Area Jaycees Mini Golf Course has supported over the years are: West Shore Community Ice Arena, a birthing room at Spectrum Health Ludington Hospital, Copeyon Park fish cleaning station, Ludington Recreation Soccer Field on Bryant Road, Mason County Recreation Football, emergency equipment for Ludington Fire Department, Waterfront Park Playground, the Skate Plaza, Stearns Park accessibility walkways, music departments at Ludington  and Mason County Central high schools, Historic White Pine Village Music Museum, among many others.
