A certain image comes to mind whenever you hear the term mini-golf. Perhaps images of the typical putt-putt courses festooned with campy windmills and faux mountains.
Jackson County Parks and Rec department is looking to swap that image for one with a more historic theme.
The 18-hole “Spirit of the River” mini-golf course that is being installed at Hurricane Shoals Park is the brainchild of Pat Bell. Jackson County Parks and Recreation director, Ricky Sanders said that the concept was originated by Bell to tell the story of the area. The overall design of each hole serves as a timeline for the area, with each hole telling a story about the area and Jackson County.
