More than just a fun fundraiser, it’s our opportunity to be awesome–together.

Hole_9
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 7th.

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 7th. The top nine designs will be chosen by October 10th, so you have plenty of time to plan and start construction.

Course construction begins on Monday November 3rd and continues on Tuesday November 4th. The course will be open for general play on Wednesday November 5th. with the Capella Classic Tournament on Thursday November 6th. Design teams must deconstruct holes and remove all materials from building by end of day Friday November 7th.

Play Golf

Two exciting ways to play this year!

Public Access

We are opening the course to the masses on Wednesday November 5th. 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.
Scorecards will be available during bagel Fridays leading up to the Together for Good campaign.
