KING OF PRUSSIA PA – Miniature golf played under black light; that’s Glowgolf, the newest addition to the King of Prussia Mall. For mini-golfers lovers across Montgomery, Bucks, Chester, Delaware, and Philadelphia counties, it’s just one of three putting options within comfortable reach, Melanie Sole of the Greater Philadelphia Tourism Marketing Corporation said Tuesday (July 3, 2012).
Glowgolf’s 18-hole fairway, located on the second floor of The Court section of the mall, features fluorescent putters, balls, obstacles and wall decorations that add a glow-in-the-dark look to traditional mini-golf. But if the feel of moving along on a black velvet poster isn’t necessarily part of your personal best mini-golf game, look toward Philadelphia for two other choices:
- “The Porch at 30th Street Station” hosts free miniature golf during the month of July. At the public space located just outside of the train station, the nine-hole course also offers golfers a chance to win a $500 gift card to Dick’s Sporting Goods, just for filling out their scorecards,” said Melanie Sole of the tourism group.
- In historic Philadelphia, at Franklin Square, kids and adults can swing their putters around their choices of miniature versions of major Philadelphia icons, such as its Love sculpture, Benjamin Franklin Bridge, and the Liberty Bell.
