Scottie’s Fun Spot , in Quincy, Ill., opened a new golf course with a Quincy Area Chamber of Commerce ribbon cutting. The nearly half million dollar project, which broke ground on August 31, is complete and ready to play.
"We had a soft opening over the past couple of weeks just too make sure everything was ready to go. The feedback from the customers has been above our expectations, and I love seeing them experience what we envisioned," said Jeff Scott, who operates the family business. "I’ve heard comments from awesome to great, every hole has a challenge to it.
"This addition will bring more people to the area, while servicing local customers as well we constantly see customers from 2 hours away just to spend some family time at Scotties," said Bob Scott, co-owner of the facility. "It turned out better then it looked on paper, and all ages will enjoy it."
Scotties expanded from a local roller rink into nearly a 3-acre facility in 2010.
The course is open with the facility hours Monday through Thursday,10 a.m. to 9 p.m., Friday and Saturday 10 a.m. to 11 p.m., and Sundays 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. The cost for 18 holes is $7 per person kids 36" and under are free. LED lighting assures an equally great time at night.
The outdoor attraction was designed by Adventure Golf Services using local contractors and overseen by the Scotts. The project is funded by Town and Country Bank. The themed design will be ADA compliant, and be available for corporate events and birthday parties.
