Glowgolf Mini Golf Arrives at Florence Mall

Glowgolf, an operator of indoor, glow-in-the-dark, miniature golf courses based in Wichita, Kan., has opened a new location at Florence Mall in Florence.

Glow-in-the-dark miniature golf is a family entertainment concept similar to black light or “cosmic” bowling. Special florescent golf balls, putters, course obstacles and wall décor all glow under black lights. The florescent-glow of the course creates a “one-of-a-kind” miniature golf experience.

Located on Level 2 next to Sears, the new Glowgolf features a giant 36-hole miniature golf course, a Laser Maze Challenge attraction and an area for birthday parties and group events. Guests can play up to 54 holes with their admission. An adult miniature golf admission is nine dollars and a child miniature golf admission is seven dollars. Group and family discounts are also available.

Jeff Bennett, area manager for Glowgolf, said, “It’s great to be open at Florence Mall. The course turned out very nicely.  We’ll be a great addition to the entertainment options in the area.”

Operating hours, when school is in, will be Monday through Friday 4 p.m. to 9 p.m., Saturday 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Sunday 12 p.m. to 6 p.m.  When school is out, hours will be Monday through Saturday 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Sunday 12 p.m. to 6 p.m.

Glowgolf operates mini golf courses across the United States. Other locations include operations in Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, North Carolina, Florida, Virginia, New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania. A complete list of locations is available here.
