MIDLAND, Texas (KOSA) - There’s a new mini-golf course in Midland…and it’s just about the same as the old one.

For the first time in years, Green Acres Mini Golf has officially reopened full time, and for many longtime Midland-Odessa residents, the course will look like it has for the past 60+ years.

The course was specifically renovated with the original course in mind. Some things are different. There’s a new retaining wall, wider and more handicap accessible walkways, and a new kids playground. But the actual course is nearly the same.

“I played this course growing up, and then I’ve played a bunch of other miniature golf courses as I’ve grown up, and they all get compared back to this course,” said Jeff Beard, a partner at Green Acres Mini Golf.

If you’re interested in testing your short game against a myriad of curves and obstacles, par is 48, and the official course record is 36 (although one employee claims to have shot a 32; however, there were no witnesses.) But you’ll need to reserve a tee time. You can do that by going to the Green Acres website.
