When you need to escape the heat and humidity of a St. Louis summer, make your way over to The Sheldon Art Galleries (an Arts and Education Council grantee) for their 5th annual “Golf the Galleries”. The playable, artist-designed nine-hole mini golf installation is open through Aug. 28 for you to explore.

Designed to be accessible and family-friendly, the course combines the visual arts with the fun of mini golf to create a truly unique experience. The nine unique mini golf holes are designed by St. Louis area artists, architects, organizations and other creatives.

From outspace space to Antarctica, the mini golf holes transport mini golfers to countless places both real and imaginary. Guests will also experience depictions of landmarks feel a bit closer to home like A Day at City Museum which is built from a variety of juxtaposed materials and objects that a City Museum guest would encounter on a typical visit. This mini golf hole, designed and built by Dave Kish, celebrates the City Museum’s 25-year history, the building’s shoe factory legacy, and a post-COVID rejuvenation.

Explore all nine mini-golf holes in person before "Golf the Galleries" closes on Aug. 28.

Tickets to golf are $10 adults / $7 children 12 and under. Tickets are on sale here.
