Increase Community Engagement

Mini golf has the power to elevate community engagement by providing a fun and family-friendly space for residents.

Every business needs a powerful marketing plan to guarantee its success, and today’s mini golf operators have to use aggressive tactics for market share. A successful business owner must triumph over the competition. Just being the owner doesn’t guarantee achievement. A well-designed, well-constructed and attractive Harris miniature golf course will support you in your long-term success.

Low Overhead

One of the benefits about running a mini golf course business is the low cost of supplies – balls, scorecards, and putters, and staff overhead (usually one or two employees to man the day-to-day operation). On top of this, liability insurance for a miniature golf course operation is relatively inexpensive.

Investment, Payback & Profits

The cost of building your course will naturally depend on the size and scope of your project, and the features you choose to make your course unique and attractive. Depending on construction costs and course design, many of our clients recover their initial investment within the first 18 months of operation. Actual results vary from site to site. Through discussing with existing mini golf course owners, the courses with the highest revenue are in good locations, well run, and with a good marketing strategy. Get our investors kit today.
