Ex­plore TA in mini golf

Te Awamutu Courier - - News - BY BETHANY ROLSTON

A new in­door mini golf course al­lows you to ex­plore Te Awa­mutu by go­ing no fur­ther than 20 Rickit Rd.

Tee A Miniputt is owned by Te Awa­mutu cou­ple Sean Stringfel­low and Carissa Mumby.

Hav­ing a swing through the 18-hole course is like go­ing for a tour through Te Awa­mutu and its sur­rounds.

Each hole is spon­sored by a lo­cal busi­ness and features quirky objects to putt around.

Among the 18 holes is a Red Kitchen hole fea­tur­ing a mini red kitchen, a Mur­ray Gane Plumb­ing hole with a toi­let and a Train Sta­tion hole with a Hulk mu­ral and bell bar.

Each hole has a QR code which you can scan on your phone to find out more about each busi­ness.

Sean and Carissa opened the mini golf course af­ter see­ing a need for one in Te Awa­mutu.

“We no­ticed that so many other towns in the North Is­land had a course — but not Te Awa­mutu,” Sean says.

“With the rate the dis­trict is grow­ing, we wanted to jump in and open a mini golf course.”

Sean says mini-golf is a per­fect ac­tiv­ity for Te Awa­mutu.

“It’s an in­clu­sive ac­tiv­ity — ev­ery per­son of any age can do it. We also wanted to make it an in­door course to suit all weather.”

The cou­ple got the keys to 20 Rickit Rd on March 9 and by An­zac Day had opened up shop.

It was a huge ef­fort to build the course in six weeks — one which couldn’t have been done with­out help from Te Awa­mutu busi­nesses, fam­ily and friends, Sean says.

Tee A Miniputt also has a func­tion room suit­able for birth­day par­ties and work events, plus cold drinks and ice creams for pur­chase.

There are also sur­rey bikes for hire, per­fect for ex­plor­ing Te Awa­mutu by bike af­ter you have ex­plored it on a mini golf course.

Tee A Miniputt is at 20 Rickit Rd. Open hours are Wed­nes­day and Thurs­day 12pm to 6pm, Fri­day 12pm to 8pm, Satur­day 10am to 8pm and Sun­day 10am to 6pm. For more in­for­ma­tion visit www.facebook.com/ TAMINI
