City hires mini-golf contractor to build new course at Edwards Park

Hendersonville’s city council voted Thursday night to hire a minigolf contractor to construct the new Laura E. Corn putt-putt course at Edwards Park

The council adopted a resolution to use the design-build construction delivery method for the 18-hole mini golf course during its regular meeting. The resolution also says the course will include elements of the existing course and represent the natural and cultural features of Western North Carolina.
The minigolf course will be relocated from Boyd Park to nearby Edwards Park as the city begins work on its new Fire Station 1. The new fire station will require the relocation of the mini golf course and city owned tennis courts at Boyd Park. The tennis courts will be relocated to Patton Park while the putt putt course will move to Edwards Park.
City Manager John Connet told council the city plans to keep the putt putt course and tennis courts open at Boyd Park through Labor Day with the goal of opening the new mini golf course at Edwards Park in June 2023.
The city staff recommended hiring a minigolf contractor to build the putt putt course because mini golf construction is a specialty and hiring a contractor that specializes in that area will ensure a better project, Connet said.
