Support The Minigolf Kickstarter


FIGMENT's Artist-Designed Miniature Golf Course is scheduled to return in June for its tenth annual summer-long season!
 Each season, new holes are designed, constructed and installed on Governors Island by emerging and established artists. Free to play and open to the public, The Minigolf Course is enjoyed by thousands of happy children and adults throughout the summer including players from school and camp groups from underserved communities. Their smiles and laughter are one of the biggest rewards for supporting the Artist-Designed Minigolf Course. 

We are excited to announce the launch of our Kickstarter campaign, which was created to help defray the rising costs of building, maintaining, insuring and staffing the course. Learn about the special opportunities for supporters including club memberships, construction of custom-designed holes, and team slots in the first ever Governors Island Miniature Golf Masters Tournament!

The theme for this year’s Artist-Designed Miniature Golf Course is “NYC Has the Beat.” As one of the worlds’ most musically vibrant cities, the NYC course will feature innovative holes inspired by the rhythm of the city and its music scene. Each hole will be a one-of-a-kind creation, crafted with skill and imagination by a local artist. 

"The Governors Island Artist-Designed Miniature Golf Course is an only-in-New-York-City experience, and the 2017 course will be our most imaginative and interactive yet,” said mini golf curator Tad Philipp. “Check out the fabulous lineup of rewards on our Kickstarter page and help bring ‘NYC Has the Beat’ to life. Then come on over to Governors Island this summer and play it!”

Thank you for your support!
