There’s something new to do in Aroostook County. We don’t know if it’s the only place to do it, but it sure is hard to find another place other than Goughan’s Berry Farm to play mini-golf.
“I brought my grandchildren and my daughter and we’re having a full day of mini golf,” says mini golfer, George Knorr.
Right now, the course has nine holes.
“The original plan called for an 18 hole miniature golf course, and the original plan was to build it in two different stages. Nine holes one year, and nine holes the following year,” says Mark Goughan, the Co-Owner of Goughan’s Berry Farm.
Goughan has already started on the other nine holes, and says they will be open next year.
“Well once you build nine holes, you think you’re an expert. So now we’re going to build the best nine holes ever created,” says Goughan.
It was a hole in one decision for Goughan’s Berry Farm, as they say, they’ve gotten lots of positive feedback.
“I like mini golfing. I’m here with my grandma my grandpa, and my brother and my mom,” says mini golfer, Jarett Nadeau.
Jarett is visiting his grandparents. It’s the first time in four years the family has been together.
“We do have a lot of grandparents that have visiting grandchildren that come out and enjoy the day because there’s really no place to take their kids to do activities together,” says Gloria Goughan, the Co-Owner of Goughan’s Berry Farm.
I caught up with a mini golfer who says he’s done this before.
“I’ve done it before. Yeah, but I can’t get it in the hole at all one time because it’s pretty hard for me. I can’t really do it. So it’s really hard, and that’s all,” says mini golfer, Noah Knorr.
But at least now, Noah has somewhere to practice his golf game.
