A while back, we offered up some tips on how to choose the ideal mini golf course location. This post gained some traction, so we figured we’d follow it up with a part two. We consider ourselves experts in designing, developing, and building miniature golf courses. Being an expert means always learning and growing. We’ve uncovered some additional insight for what to look for in terms of the right location to build a mini golf course, which is why we want to share this addendum with you now!
Look Beyond Competition
Evaluating the competition is certainly important when looking for the right location for your mini golf course, but it’s not the be all end all. In fact, there are benefits to having multiple miniature golf courses close by. It is also important to consider if moving your course a bit further to capture a different audience would be an option.
Still, evaluating where to build your mini golf course isn’t just about knowing the competition. After doing some research, you may find that your type of mini golf course could cater to a different crowd than what is already there. In an area primarily geared towards couples and date nights, perhaps your focus on being a family-friendly establishment could be your niche.
Learn About the Demographics
Understanding who your target audience is and what they may be able to bring to your mini golf course will help you cater to them better. Whether you choose a location first and build a mini golf course around it or decide on a niche and choose a location second, it’s important to know who will be coming into your business. Look into median home prices; find out if the neighborhood is primarily made up of families, couples, or single individuals; look into the proximity of school districts; determine whether this is a residential area or geared towards corporate buildings; finally, consider whether the location you plan to build your mini golf course in is urban, suburban, or rural. All of these will be factors that could play into determining the success of your mini golf course.
Consult the Experts for Guidance
Location is an important aspect of starting a successful mini golf course. Part of finding the right location is evaluating the grounds upon which you’ll be building the course. Working with a team of experts who know all about what it takes to build according to the contours of grounds and work within whatever constructs they are given will make all the difference.
