Well, you can putt putt like the pros FOR FREE the week of the U.S. Open courtesy of the Tacoma Art Museum (TAM), Tacoma Arts Commission and the National Endowment for the Arts. In collaboration with local artists, a free public mini-golf course, Pop-Up Art Putt! will be coming to Tacoma!
Pop-Up Art Putt! includes ten miniature golf holes designed by Tacoma artists. Each hole is built around a theme, ranging from the comic and playful to those showcasing our city’s unique landmarks.
