SplitShot Mini Golf: A New, Fun Modular Design Driven by Customer Need

January 1, 2014 No Comments

SplitShot Mini Golf proves that design follows need. SplitShot creates more fun for each putt on the course according to Kreg Krupa, Adventure Golf Services account executive.  “Our potential buyers express their desire to purchase a low cost, portable miniature golf with more fun than other available models.

“We sell many low cost miniature golf products including MiniLinks and LittleDuffer and they are all very popular,” said Krupa.  “However clients always ask the same question, ‘How can we add more tricks and obstacles to create more fun?’  As a result, the entire company staff collaborated with AGS chief designer, Arne Lundmark, to create a product to fill this niche market.”

“We follow a design discipline to create fun golf holes,” said Lundmark, “But sometimes we need to be creative to add or retain fun as we create economical golf holes. During our research and development we found a way to satisfy the customer need.  We created a prototype model which has multiple split-shots in different directions from tee-to-green and green-to-green on every golf hole.  Players have a choice of multiple paths to the golf hole cup, hence the name SplitShot.

“This mix of SplitShot miniature golf fun has a price of  $16,900 for the front nine holes, $18,900 for the back nine and $33,800 for a discounted 18 golf holes. The nine hole course fits into approximately 1,800 square feet,” Lundmark said.

SplitShot™ has many fun options to split the shot at the end of the fairway, such as a Vortex, Pachinko and Ski Jump.
