Amer­ica’s small­est golf course makes its de­but

Calhoun Times - - OPINION/COMMENT - Staff Re­ports

The Amer­i­can Putting Clas­sic, a three by 12-feet Lux­ury Putting Car­pet, is now avail­able to golfers, se­nior liv­ing fa­cil­i­ties, sports bars, re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion cen­ters, event plan­ners, schools and com­pa­nies across Amer­ica. The ini­tial re­sponse to pi­lot own­ers has been won­der­ful.

This unique course, com­plete with a front and back nine, en­ables any­one re­gard­less of age or ath­letic abil­ity to play a round of golf in less than 12 min­utes. The spe­cial scor­ing sys­tem Par’s, Birdies & Ea­gles closely ap­prox­i­mates scores on ma­jor golf tours.

Si­mons En­ter­tain­ment Group first cre­ated this course for spe­cial Fa­ther’s Day ac­tiv­i­ties in 65 U.S. cities. More than 30,000 peo­ple played the game to­gether with large me­dia par­tic­i­pa­tion. Each event fea­tured spe­cial score­cards, leader­boards and tour­na­ment golf pre­sen­ta­tion.

For more than one year – SEG, based in Cal­i­for­nia, searched to find some­one who could cre­ate a “first class prod­uct” to mar­ket. “Chet Gra­ham at Mar­quis In­dus­tries in Cal­houn was the man­u­fac­turer who could both print and de­liver our course at a com­pet­i­tive price,” ex­plained Steve and El­yse Si­mons, hus­band and wife part­ners in the 36 square foot course. They added, “We re­ceived won­der­ful south­ern hos­pi­tal­ity from both Chet and Art Di­rec­tor Chis Voyles – even di­rect­ing us to a serger to fin­ish and im­prove the al­ready great look of the car­pet.”

Look out Amer­ica, golfers both old and new will be play­ing 18 holes of golf with no green fees and smiles on their faces.
