The Ludington Area Jaycees’ Miniature Golf Course was opened in 1967 to generate funds to support community projects. Since that time, over $300,000 has been donated to various community projects including a Birthing Room at Memorial Medical Center (now Spectrum Health Ludington Hospital), a fish cleaning station at Copeyon Park, the Ludington Recreation Soccer Field on Bryant Road, Mason County Rec Football, equipment for the Ludington Badgers Traveling Hockey Team, emergency equipment for the Ludington Fire Department, the Ludington Skate Park, Waterfront Park Playground, West Shore Community College Indoor Ice Arena, Hospice of Michigan, Ludington and Mason County Central High Schools Music Departments, among many others. No profits from the course are used for the Chapter’s projects.
A major renovation of the entire mini golf course is planned including razing and rebuilding with a “Landmarks of Ludington” theme. Local businesses and organizations are the sponsor and inspiration for the holes such as the North Breakwater Lighthouse, Cartier Mansion, and Park Dairy House of Flavors. Scoring posts will serve to allow players to record their scores, number the holes, and list information about the hole’s obstacle and it’s sponsor.
The renovation of the Ludington Area Jaycees Mini Golf Course will increase traffic and sales at the course which will, in turn, allow the Jaycees to continue to pump more money back into enriching Mason County through donations to community service organizations and projects.
Please gather pledges and go Jump in the Lake this Saturday for this very worthy cause! If you’re not able to jump, please consider a donation to the project. Contact Mary Burden at (231) 690-2020 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more information!
