Minigolf Funpark opens at Parkmall, Mandaue
The first Mini Golf Funpark in the Visayas opened last Aug. 13, at Parkmall in Mandaue. Harvig’s Mini Golf has built a nine-hole mini golf course where everybody can play and have fun.
What is a mini golf? It is an entertainment for all people. Everybody can play: children, teenagers, adults, men and women. It’s a perfect game for family bonding and for challenging your friends. You play with a golf putter on nine different mini golf lanes. Every lane has one or two obstacles you shall pass from the start to the hole and you shall try to get in the hole with as few shots as possible. The one with the lowest score after nine holes is the winner. It’s easy to learn and it’s easy to play, says Emily Harvigsson, the owner of Harvig’s Mini Golf.
”When my husband came to Cebu five years ago, he asked me where we could play mini golf and we found out that there was no place to play such game,” muses Emily.
”I was surprised,” says Chris Harvigsson. ”I have played mini golf both in Europe and in US, where it is a very popular entertainment. In my hometown in Sweden, there are at least five mini golf parks, even in a town much smaller than Cebu. So we decided to start a mini golf funpark here, so the people in Cebu and Mandaue can also enjoy.”
”We were searching for a good location and when we met the management of Parkmall and told them about our idea. They got very enthusiastic and told us that we were very welcome to locate the mini golf funpark at Parkmall,” says Emily.
The funpark is open Monday to Thursday from 2 p.m. to 10 p.m. and from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. on weekends—Friday to Sunday.
