It’s back! Bigger and better than last year.
We are taking over space on the 6th floor with an awesome, new, designed by you, nine hole-miniature golf course. Two fun-filled ways for you to participate with a team of your colleagues.
Design a Hole
We are seeking nine teams to design, create and build, challenging and fun mini-golf holes. C’mon all you creative designers, mini-golf aficionados and competitive tinkerers, show us what you’ve got and sign up today!
Golfers and guest judges will vote on the best hole design and the coveted Capella Classic Design Award trophy will be presented to the winning design team at the Champion’s Celebration on November 13th.
Email TFGMiniGolf@capella.edu for design parameters and the official design proposal template.
Submit your design proposal to TFGMiniGolf@capella.edu no later than 5pm on Tuesday October 16th.
The top nine designs will be chosen by October 23rd, so you have plenty of time to plan and start construction.
Course construction will be on Monday November 9th. The course will be open for general play on Tuesday November 10th, with the Capella Classic Tournament on Wednesday and Thursday, November 11 and 12.
Design teams must deconstruct holes and remove all materials from building by end of day Friday, November 13th.
Two exciting ways to play!
We are opening the course to the masses on Tuesday November 10th. That’s right, everyone is welcome to come play the course throughout the day for no fee! But, be prepared to pay for mulligans (do-overs) and swearing infractions.
There will be a hole-in-one contest during open play. $2/attempt or 3 for $5.
Scorecards will be available during bagel Fridays leading up to the Together for Good campaign.
The Capella Classic Tournament and the Champion’s Celebration
The Capella Classic returns to Capella Tower for a second year. Tournament play will be held throughout the day on Thursday November 11th and 12th. Teams of four players will compete for bragging rights and trophies. You choose a tee time window that works for your foursome: in the morning, early PM or late PM.
Costumes and team themes are highly encouraged. Awards for most creative and best dressed team will be presented at the Champion’s Celebration on Friday November 13th. Along with trophies and prizes for the top three (lowest combined score) teams.
Entry fee is $20 per individual / $80 per foursome. Entry fee includes the tournament entry and admission to the Champion’s Celebration!
Sign up your foursome for this awesome event by emailing TFGMiniGolf@capella.edu today! Space is limited.
