Located at Lakeshore Dr and Ludington Ave in Stearns Park.
The Ludington Area Jaycees’ Miniature Golf Course was opened in 1967 for the sole purpose of generating funds to support community projects. Since that year, over $300,000 has been donated by the club to local initiatives. Proceeds from the mini golf are only used to support local charitable organizations and causes with zero dollars going toward the Ludington Area Jaycees’ chapter projects.
Mini Golf proceeds are distributed after passing through the following steps:
(1) Community group written requests
(2) Major Projects Committee’s approval
(3) Approval of the Jaycees General Membership.
One way the Jaycees utilizes its business to benefit other organizations is through Charity Mondays. Every Monday throughout the summer, 30 percent of the proceeds from that day’s mini golf earnings is donated to a selected nonprofit. The nonprofit can also promote their organization with displays and exhibits at the Mini Golf from noon to 9pm during Charity Mondays.
Nonprofits wanting to participate in Charity Mondays can contact Mary at (231) 690-2020.
