Creative Works Turns Miniature Golf Course Into A Tour of Chicago
City Golf 312 takes players through a miniature walking tour of Chicago's famous landmarks. According to Jim Bennington, Games & Redemption Manager, he wanted to "represent the city in a nutshell." He accomplished that goal and more with visits to Wrigley Field, the Field Museum and the Chicago Theatre. Every hole highlights a landmark with highly detailed props and construction. "Everything has been hand crafted in this place to create a 'wow,' goose bumps," said Steven Foster, CEO of Lucky Strike Entertainment. "Delivering the wow effect" is Creative Works' vision statement so this project was an easy choice for the company.
The highly skilled Creative Works design team that includes sculptors, painters, and architects made several trips to Chicago to ensure that no detail was missed on any of the landmarks. A replica of one of the iconic lion statues that sits in front of the Art Institute of Chicago took over 20 hours to sculpt. The team made sure that the heart and soul of the city was represented and both local guests and tourists have noticed. "Unlike anything anybody has done in the world ever," added Foster.
FTW Chicago is located adjacent to the Lucky Strike and AMC River East complex on 322 Illinois Street in Chicago.
