GlowGolf Circle CentreA unique mini-golf concept called GlowGolf has opened on the troubled fourth floor of Circle Centre mall. Wichita, Kan.-based Opry GlowGolf LLC, which operates 20 similar courses around the country, took 6,500 square feet just up the escalator from the food court. The opened in time to capitalize on this week's FFA convention, in space that's been vacant for years. The course joins the Tilt arcade and United Artists Theatres as the fourth floor's only tenants. The 18-hole, glow-in-the-dark course includes a windmill hole, an "Octoputt" hole and a hole based on The Price Is Right game Plinko. A round is $8 for adults and between $3 and $6 for children, depending on age. Group rates and party packages also are available. Mini-golfers first "charge" their golf ball to make it glow on the black-lit course. The privately held concept, created by Reginald Boothe and John Wright, has grown quickly as mall owners seek new concepts to backfill vacant spaces. GlowGolf also has locations in Fort Wayne and Merrillville.

  • Unique?
    I would hardly call this "unique". Monster Mini-Golf has been in Avon for at least a couple of years. Exact same concept.
    • Not new
      There's also one in Corydon, Indiana, called Golf Shores.
    • Downer
      You're so right Brian! I also hear that the harsh rays from those black lights will certainly lead to intraocular melanoma. That's why everyone should just stay home, where it's safe, and talk to our cats. Like us, right Brian?
      • Thanks
        Thanks Brian for pointing out the un-uniqueness of this concept, keep on saving us from such fiendish plots to misinform us.
      • I miss
        the city golf or whatever it was called up by the food court in Union Station. It was like real "mini" golf with fake bunkers, water, etc. That was fun.
      • dir of operations
        Instead of all being critical, why don't we hope that this golf facility is successful and brings in revenue to an area of Circle Centre that has struggled for years? Unique or not - who cares? All the best to Glow Golf in bringing something different into downtown Indy.
      • Up the UV!
        They should throw in a few more lights and make it a Golf-'n'-Tan. I bet Avon doesn't have one of those.
      • PLINKO???
        Did you say Plinko??? I'm grabbing my "I MISS BOB BARKER" T-shirt and heading over there RIGHT NOW!
      • actually
        actually theyre not the harmful kind i work here amd i am perfectly fine. if you look it up there are different kinds of black ligts. i am sure they wouldn't allow us to put them up if they were harmful .
